Slip And Fall Accidents

One moment you’re up-right and walking and the next moment you find yourself laying on the ground in pain. Sometimes a slip and fall accident is just that – a careless accident. But other times, slip and fall accidents are caused by the reckless or negligent behavior of someone else. Someone who owns, manages, or occupies a public or private property is responsible for maintaining a reasonably safe environment of that property for people who are invited as guests, customers, or service personnel onto their property.

Slip and fall accidents can cause serious harm to victims, and if you were injured in a slip and fall accident that occurred because of the negligent or reckless behavior of someone else you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. You need a compassionate personal injury lawyer who will advocate for your right to the compensation you need to heal and fully recover. Contact us to schedule your consultation with one of our skilled slip and fall accident attorneys.

When you are injured in a car or slip and fall accident and the negligence or reckless behavior of someone else either led to or caused the accident, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your injuries.

The types of compensation an injured victim can receive in a personal injury claim in Florida include:

  • Medical Bills & Estimated Cost of Future Medical Care – you may be entitled to compensation for medical treatment received because of the accident, including the estimated cost of any future, on-going medical care. However, you may have to seek to recover this compensation from your own insurance carrier first.
  • Lost Wages & Loss of Future Earnings – you can recover damages for time missed from work while recovering from your injury, and the loss of your ability to earn future wages that you would have been capable of earning if it were not for your injury.
  • Pain & Suffering – while having the cost of medical care covered will certainly be a relief, you will still have to endure the physical pain and suffering associated with your injury, and you can be compensated for this pain and suffering as well.

Each personal injury case is unique and the compensation you are entitled to may vary based on the circumstances of your case. Contact an experienced personal injury attorney to review the individual circumstances of your case with you.

Is there a statute of limitations for personal injury cases?

Personal injury cases have a statute of limitations, or a limited amount of time in which you can file a lawsuit against the negligent party in the case which vary by state. Injuries don’t always appear immediately after the accident occurs, however you can damage your own claim the longer you wait to get an attorney once you know a personal injury claim may exist. You should contact an experienced personal injury lawyer and seek medical attention as soon as you recognize any symptoms which could be related to an injury from your accident. If you don’t file your claim within the time allotted in the statute of limitations, the courts will likely refuse to hear your case.
