Cocoa Florida Slip and Fall Lawyer

The area of personal injury law encompasses far more than what most people realize. Typically, people envision a car wreck when they hear the term “personal injury accident.” While motor vehicles collisions certainly do fall within the purview of personal injury law, so do many other types if injury accidents. Slip and fall accidents, for instance, are also personal injury accidents.

Just as people have a pre-conceived notion of what a personal injury accident is, they also often have a negative impression of the term “slip and fall” accident. Despite what you may have heard, slip and fall accidents are legitimate personal injuries that can cause a victim to suffer serious, even fatal, injuries.

In short, a slip and fall personal injury case is a case where the victim has slipped, tripped, been knocked down, or fallen while on the property of another. When you are on the property of another person (or company) the owner typically has a duty to prevent harm from coming to you while you are on the property. The extent of that duty depends on your relationship with the property owner. If you are invited onto the property with the expectation of financial gain by the owner, you are owed the highest duty of care. For example, if you are a customer in a store, the owner invited you onto the property in the hope that you would spend money while there. If you are injured while on the property, the owner may be held financially liable for your injuries.

 

Although the term “slip and fall” is used as a generic term, other types of accidents may also lead to liability on the part of a property owner if you are injured while on the property. Some common examples include:

    • Liquid spills – in Florida, water is a constant nemesis. Whether from a summer storm or because the property is located near the beach or a pool, the property owner has a duty to clean up spills and/or water that presents a risk of slipping to anyone on the property.

    • Cluttered aisles – a store owner has a responsibility to keep aisles free from boxes and merchandise that could cause a customer to trip and fall.

    • Defective construction – loose boards, improperly maintained steps, or crumbling concrete are examples of defective construction that could cause injuries to someone visiting the property.

    • Improper lighting – failing to properly light a parking lot, walkway, or interior of a property can cause a customer to trip or fall, causing injuries.

If you were injured in a slip and fall accident you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Contact a Cameron Law today to find out what legal options you may have.
