Fort Lauderdale Slip and Fall Lawyers
Imagine walking through a grocery store aisle looking for items on your list when you feel your feet fly out from underneath you and you wind up on the floor, unable to move. You’ve just slipped on a water puddle in the middle of the store. Or, imagine walking down the street when suddenly, you feel yourself flying forward and you wind up face down on the cement. Slip or trip and fall accidents occur all the time and most people do not even realize it. However, slip or trip and fall accidents can cause serious injuries, from broken bones to spinal cord injuries. Slip or trip and fall accidents can result from a variety of circumstances, including poorly lit hallways or stairways, narrow stairwells, uneven sidewalks, potholes, liquid or greasy substances on the ground, and loose or missing railings.
Most slip or trip and fall accidents result in broken bones, torn ligaments and back pain, all of which result in expensive medical and chiropractic procedures and injections to repair. As a victim, you should not have to bear the costs for injuries caused by another person’s negligence, nor should you have to forfeit work wages while recovering from your injuries. The Fort Lauderdale slip and fall injury attorneys at Friedland | Carmona have devoted their careers to helping victims recover compensation for injuries suffered as a result of another person’s negligence. Our lawyers will work hard to prove that the owner of the property knew of the dangerous condition that caused your injuries and allowed you on the property, despite the existence of the dangerous conditions.
The law imposes a duty on property owners to ensure that their premises are free of known or foreseeable dangerous conditions because guests, customers and licensees have a reasonable expectation that the premises are free of dangerous conditions. If you suffer injuries while on the property of another, the owner is liable for the costs of your injuries, your lost wages and your pain and suffering. If you or a loved one has suffered a slip or trip and fall accident, call us today! Florida law places strict limits on when these claims can be brought, so it is important that you contact the Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorneys as soon as possible!
