Gas stations and convenience stores are busy places. With patrons constantly entering and exiting, grabbing food and drinks, spills are bound to happen, and accidents may follow. It’s the store management’s job to clean up and keep the premises safe.
If you were hurt due to a fall at a Fast Track convenience store, you may qualify to file a personal injury claim. A Florida Fast Track slip and fall lawyer at Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers can help you hold the establishment accountable and advise you on the best course of action for your case.
What Does the Law Say About Slip and Fall Accidents at Florida Businesses?
Property owners and business owners have a duty to keep their premises reasonably safe for visitors. That means keeping the place clean, tidy, secure, and free from hazardous conditions. When they and their employees fail to do so, they are accountable under the premises liability laws in Florida if someone gets hurt as a result.
Fast Track is liable for paying you damages but only if you can prove they were negligent. Florida Statute §768.0755 states that if a person slips on a transitory foreign substance, (i.e. anything that’s not supposed to be on the floor or ground), they must prove the business establishment knew or should have known about the dangerous conditions on the property and failed to remedy them.
Our Florida Fast Track slip and fall attorneys can work to demonstrate that negligence took place and that you suffered damages because of it.

Which Damages Can a Slip and Fall Attorney Help Me Recover?
Florida law allows those injured due to the negligence or misconduct of others to seek compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. You can pursue damages for any physical, emotional, and financial harm the slip and fall has caused. That’s important because victims of fall accidents may suffer severe injuries like fractured bones, dislocated joints, muscle strains, spinal cord injuries, or traumatic brain injuries. Physical trauma of this nature can result in high medical bills or loss of work.
In addition, some victims experience psychological harm. Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, fear of falling a second time causes many victims to avoid normal or enjoyable activities, reducing their overall quality of life.
Examples of Recoverable Damages in a Slip and Fall Claim
A Florida slip and fall lawyer can help you pursue financial compensation for:
- Medical care
- Loss of income and opportunities
- Reduced ability to earn
- Mental anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Physical impairment
Our firm can provide more information on the specific damages you could recover after reviewing your case.
