Slip & Falls
Slip and fall accidents are very common. As the term implies, they occur when someone is injured as a result of slipping or tripping and falling on someone else’s property. When a slip and fall accident is caused by a property owner’s failure to maintain safe conditions, you may be entitled to recover compensation in a premises liability lawsuit.
Premises liability law governs all cases involving injuries that occur on an unsafe property, and slip and fall accidents are the most common type of premises liability case. When a property owner fails to fulfill his obligation to provide safe conditions for visitors, he may be held liable for any injuries that occur as a result of this negligence.
To hold a property owner such as a supermarket or grocery store liable for a slip and fall, it is best to hire an experienced personal injury lawyer. Sometimes, the store owner created the wet condition as one of their employees improperly mopped the floor or spilled an item while stocking the shelves. Other times, a machinery or refrigerator malfunctioned created a slick and dangerous puddle. Whatever the case, there are certain legalities that one must prove if you want to recover damages for a slip and fall.

There are many ways in which a slip and fall accident can occur. Some dangerous conditions that typically cause these accidents include:
- Wet floors
- Rippled carpet
- Uneven sidewalks
- Cracked or uneven stairways
- Obstructions on the floor
- Unbalanced flooring
- Poorly lit or unmarked hallways or stairways
- Snowy or icy sidewalks
- Tripping hazards
You should always take pictures of whatever condition caused the accident. Otherwise, once it is fixed you’ll never be able to document these conditions again. You should also be careful and guarded in terms of what you tell the establishment where your injury occurred. You will eventually be filing a lawsuit against them, and you don’t want to arm them with any additional information that could potentially damage your case.Experienced Boca Raton Slip and Fall Lawyer
