South Florida Slip and Fall Injuries

Slip and Fall Premises Liability

Slip and fall accidents routinely cause serious injuries and happen more often than you realize. Even minor, seemingly insignificant issues can cause you to lose your footing and suffer a fall. Colliding with a solid object or striking a hard floor can injure your back, spine, and bones or cause a TBI or internal injuries. Accidents from negligence in public places fall under premises liability law.

Property owners have a duty to provide safe areas for clients and guests. If you have a slip and fall accident in Monroe County because another person or party neglected to provide a safe walkway, you may be able to recover compensation through a premises liability/slip and fall personal injury claim. Roller Rubinstein has seasoned Premises Liability Accident Attorneys who can review your case and recommend some next steps.

Common Causes for Slip and Fall Accidents in Florida

Slip and fall accidents can happen instantly and in all kinds of circumstances. A single negligent omission or careless act by another person can dramatically alter your health and life. Common causes of slip and fall accidents include:

  • Wet floors
  • Loose debris
  • Cluttered walkways or stairways
  • Loose railings or stair coverings
  • Loose carpet or rugs
  • Broken pavement or potholes
  • Damaged or obstructed sidewalks
  • Falls from ladders

If your accident was caused by negligence, you are entitled to pursue compensation to help cover your medical expenses. Slip and fall accident personal injury claims can be complicated because multiple parties can be at fault – or it may be difficult to ascertain who is responsible. For example, is a broken sidewalk in front of a store strewn with loose gravel and debris the store owner’s responsibility, or does the local municipality bear some blame? Or, if repair crews are at work, do they bear guilt for your slip and fall accident?

A Florida Personal Injury Lawyer from Roller Rubinstein can investigate your accident’s circumstances to determine who is at fault. In some cases, more than one party may share the blame and be named in your personal injury lawsuit. We know premises liability law and how to protect your rights while representing you before property owners, insurance companies, legal representatives, and other entities.

What Should I Do After a Slip and Fall Accident in Miami Beach?

If you slip and fall indoors, outdoors, or in some other location in Miami Beach, our attorneys recommend the following actions:

Seek Medical Attention

Always prioritize your health and well-being after any type of accident. Call 911 or ask someone nearby to do so for you. Limit your movements until emergency medical responders can examine you. Even if you do not feel any pain, submit to an examination by trained medical professionals. Some injuries may not show symptoms until later.

Report the Incident

Report the incident to someone in charge of the venue. Ask to speak to a manager or another responsible party and clearly describe what happened. Request a copy of any incident report they complete for your records. Your slip and fall accident attorney can use this to help build your case.

Gather Evidence

If your condition permits, take smartphone photos of the scene where you fell and any other relevant evidence, such as a wet floor or debris. Ask for the contact information of any witnesses and the person representing the venue where you fell (store, parking lot, public event, etc.).

Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer

A team of lawyers will always protect public places where you can become injured, so you should have legal representation, too. Roller Rubinstein Slip and Fall Attorneys may be able to prove negligence and help you pursue compensation for your injuries. We offer a FREE evaluation to explain your legal rights and options for pursuing compensation from responsible people or parties.

Why Should I Consult a Palm Beach Slip and Fall Accident Attorney from Roller Rubinstein?

Slip and fall accidents that come under premises liability law can be complex because many variables are possible:

  • A wet floor in a retail store without proper warning signs can be blamed on a worker or store management.
  • A cluttered sidewalk could be the responsibility of a store owner; however, if the store owner has contracted repairs with another company, they could also be responsible.
  • If you fell down a dim or unlighted stairwell, the building owner could be liable.

Roller Rubinstein can determine who is at fault for your accident and help hold them accountable for your injuries and losses, including medical expenses (now and in the future), lost wages if you cannot work, pain and suffering, or even additional compensation for scarring or disfigurement. One of our Florida Personal Injury Attorneys can explain more during your FREE evaluation.
