What Can You Recover in a Florida Slip and Fall Case?

If you’ve ever slipped and fallen on someone else’s property, you have a legal right to recover compensation for your injuries if your injuries were caused by someone’s negligence. Slip and fall injuries can cause serious harm, including broken bones, head trauma, or spinal cord damage. The costs in lost wages and medical bills can be substantial, which is why you might want to consult with a Florida slip and fall injury claims attorney if you ever suffer this sort of harm.


What Is a Slip and Fall Case—And Do You Have One?

This is a type of personal injury claim where an individual has fallen due to a dangerous condition on another party’s property. The dangerous condition could be a wet floor, loose tiles, a cracked stair railing, a poorly lit walkway, or any other condition that leads to a trip and fall or slip and fall accident.

To have a slip and fall case in Florida, you must be able to prove that the property owner or manager knew or should have known about a dangerous situation and failed to warn you or chose not to fix the issue.

For example, if you slipped on a freshly-cleaned floor in a store, you may have a claim if you can prove the property owner or manager knew or should have known about the danger but refused to act and you were injured because of this negligence.

The best way to tell whether you have a slip and fall case in Florida is to speak with a personal injury attorney in your area. An attorney can gather information about the situation and let you know whether you may have any legal options.

What Can You Recover in a Slip and Fall Case?

If you have a slip and fall case, you and your attorney can seek financial damages to compensate you for the costs and pain and suffering you’ve endured because of someone’s negligence.

The types of damages you can recover in a slip and fall case vary depending on your situation, but may include:

  • The costs of any medical treatment you needed as a result of your injuries, including hospital bills, doctor visits, medication, surgery, and more.
  • Lost income because of your injuries, as well as any future loss of earning capacity.
  • Pain and suffering, including discomfort, anxiety, depression, and other impacts of your injuries.
  • Punitive damages, which punish a negligent party for gross negligence or intentional misconduct.

How Can a Lawyer Help?

Slip and fall cases can be complex. The property owner or manager, their insurance company, and their lawyers will work hard to deny their liability, blame you for your own injuries, or minimize your injuries.

An experienced slip and fall injury lawyer on your side can help by:

  • Investigating your injury and securing evidence to support your claim
  • Negotiating with the other party for a fair settlement
  • Filing a lawsuit and representing you in court if necessary
  • Pursuing fair compensation on your behalf
  • Keeping you updated about your claim
  • Protecting your rights and interests throughout the process

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
