Slip And Fall
Slip-and-fall accidents are fairly common in Fort Pierce, Port St. Lucie and across all of Florida. Sometimes the injuries are minor, a few bruises perhaps, however other times the injuries from a slip and fall can be serious. It is common for fall victims to suffer head injuries, broken bones, and neck or back injuries that require surgical repair. Serious slip-and-fall injuries create costly medical bills, force you to take time off from work, often make it harder to take care of your family and, of course, your pain and suffering. When a costly injury occurs because of an unsafe condition on someone else’s property, you may have a valid damage claim for negligence. If you need help GC Law can help you understand your rights and options. You can contact us online or by calling us at 772-710-4243.
Some conditions that cause slip and falls:
Slip-and-fall injuries can be caused by many different things. Sometimes they are caused by a natural condition, such as rainy sidewalks during the summer or even unnatural conditions such as wet grocery store aisles. However, at other times the injury may actually be caused by someone else’s carelessness or negligence. Examples that can cause slip and falls include:
- Poorly lit stairwells
- Mats that get folded
- Rugs bunched up, torn, worn out or that slip
- Uneven patch of ground, floor, or sidewalk
- Hazardous conditions
- Water or liquids left unattended
- Broken or defective porches
- Broken, defective or poorly designed stairs or stair rails
- Broken up or uneven pavement
- Oily or wet spots form spilled or leaked materials
- A freshly mopped floor
While these may all seem like serious maintenance deficiencies, not every accident that occurs on another person’s property from these conditions create liability for the property owner. Whether the owner is liable depends upon the specific circumstances.
