When you have been a victim of a slip and fall case, make sure that you have a team of attorney’s on your side that will fight hard to get you what you deserve. Slip and fall cases fall into personal injury law.

Understanding a Slip and Fall Injury

What is considered a slip and fall you ask? A slip and fall, is any time a person loses their footing, falls, and is injured on another person’s property.

There are several types of slip-and-fall accidents, including:

  • Trip-and-fall, where a person falls over an object in their path or an uneven surface
  • Step-and-fall, where the fall is caused by a hole or a low spot in the path
  • Slip-and-fall, where a slippery liquid or object causes the fall

Who is the responsible party in my slip and fall injury? That is a typical question that any victim of a slip and fall might ask. A slip and fall injury usually occurs at the fault of another. Under Florida premises liability law, a landowner or business must keep their property in a reasonably safe condition for customers or guests. When this standard is known fully not upheld, then that is when fault comes into play.

If the problem isn’t fixed and a person falls and is injured as a result, the owner or manager of the property may be responsible for the injury. This is called negligence, and the injured person may be able to sue.

The Ben Law Firm has a team of highly skilled attorney’s that will sort through your case to offer you the best options available to you. In order to win your Florida slip and fall case, you must be able to prove a number of things in court including:

  • The property owner or business owed a duty of care to the injured person. For example, when a store is open for business, it is the same as if they have asked you to come in and shop. When a business invites someone onto their property, they need to make sure that their property is safe.
  • The property owner or business didn’t use reasonable care in maintaining or operating the property. The court decides what is reasonable in each case based on the evidence.
  • Because the property owner or business didn’t use reasonable care, a person was injured.

After a four-year time period from your Florida slip and fall injury, the statute of limitation will apply and you will no longer be able to file a case for your sustained injuries.
