Slip and Fall

Slip and fall or trip and fall accidents can happen anywhere and for any number of reasons:

  • Wet floor
  • Improper lighting
  • Loose carpet or tile
  • Broken stairs/steps
  • Hidden defects

In Florida, businesses have a legal duty to make their premises safe from harm that is reasonably foreseeable. To recover compensation as a result of a slip and fall, you must prove that your injuries are caused as a result of the property owner’s negligence. 

If you have been involved in a slip and fall or trip and fall, some important tips to keep in mind:

  • Seek immediate medical attention if necessary
  • Ask to speak with a manager/supervisor and file an incident report
  • Get contact information for any witnesses
  • If possible, take pictures with your cell phone
