Broward Slip and Fall Lawyers
Slip or trip and fall accident rarely make the news. However, they are one of the most common types of accident. Raised sidewalks, uneven steps, water puddles, and wobbly railings all pose risks that could lead to a slip or trip and fall accident. Property owners have a duty imposed by law to ensure that their property is safe from foreseeable dangerous conditions before allowing guests, licensees and customers to enter the property. Guests have a reasonable expectation that the property will be safe; and if the property is not safe, the guests have the right to hold the property owner liable for any injuries the unsafe condition caused them.
