About Slip & Fall Accidents

Premises Liability Cases in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Slip and fall accidents generally occur due to dangerous conditions on another's property. These accidents occur with great regularity, with over one million Americans suffering slip and falls every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Slip and fall accidents fall under the broader category of "premises liability" cases, in which a person is injured on another's property due to negligence displayed by the property owner or manager. Negligent acts that can lead to a slip and fall accident include:

  • A failure to adequately maintain the property and its facilities
  • A failure to clean wet or slippery floors, or post warning signs indicating the hazard
  • Items in hallways or on walking surfaces
  • Uneven walking surfaces
  • A failure in properly designing the layout of the property (leading to obstacles or areas that increase the likelihood of a fall)

It is important to have a lawyer who can isolate the relevant facts and evidence proving liability, and present those facts to an insurance company, or a court of law, in pursuing compensation for damages.
