Slip and Fall Accidents

A slip or a trip might not sound dangerous by itself, but it can have catastrophic consequences under the wrong circumstances. Hidden potholes, slippery floors or defective stairs can throw anyone off their feet, causing broken bones and head or spinal injuries. These injuries are no laughing matter; they can cause permanent disabilities or take victims out of work for months. Older people who suffer catastrophic falls may never fully recover, losing their independence or their sense of safety as well as physical abilities.

State law holds all property owners and occupiers — residential, commercial and industrial — responsible for making sure their property is safe for invited visitors. Florida slip and fall accident attorneys call this “premises liability,” and it applies to all non-trespassers in almost any public place. If owners can’t clear hazards right away, they must warn visitors of the dangers. Owners are even responsible for taking security measures in situations where violent crime is likely, a legal theory that Florida slip and fall accident lawyers call “negligent security.”

When owners fail in this legal duty, victims have the right to hold them legally responsible for the results. The Fort Lauderdale slip and fall lawyers at Weinstein & Scharf, P.A., can help.
