Are you struggling with injuries you sustained after a slip and fall accident at a Miami-area Publix store? If the answer to that question is “yes,” it’s quite likely that you have other questions like “Who is going to pay my medical bills?” or “How do I get reimbursed for lost wages if I can’t work because of my injuries?” A Miami Publix slip and fall accident & injury lawyer can help you answer those questions.
Publix has a legal duty to keep its stores free of trip hazards. Many slip and fall accidents are caused by store management failing to take adequate steps to ensure customer safety. If that failure caused your slip and fall injury, you have the right to hold Publix accountable by demanding damages. A slip and fall attorney from Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers can help.

- Slippery floors from recent waxing
- Obstructed aisles (e.g., large displays, unloaded product pallets, etc.)

What Damages Can a Miami Publix Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer Demand?
If your Publix slip and fall injury accident was caused by negligence or the store’s failure to maintain a safe shopping environment, any expenses you incur due to the accident may be recoverable damages. Florida law gives anyone who suffered harm in a slip and fall accident the right to recover those damages from the Publix store where the accident happened.
Examples of the recoverable damages you can demand after an accident include:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Post-accident transport to medical facilities
- Physical therapy or any ongoing accident-related medical care
- Pain and suffering and other non-economic damages
In some extreme cases, accident victims can also suffer temporary or permanent disability. If that’s your situation, we will calculate our damage demand to ensure it reflects both your present and future losses.

You Have a Limited Time to Collect Damages in a Publix Slip and Fall Accident Case
You have a limited time to act if you intend to demand damages for your Publix slip and fall injury. Slip and fall injury cases fall under the category of “personal injuries.” Florida has a four-year statute of limitations in personal injury lawsuits, per Florida Statutes § 95.11. That means if you don’t demand damages within four years of your accident, you will likely forfeit your right to do so (except under limited circumstances).
While four years sounds like a long time, the sooner we can get started, the better. Valuable evidence like the security camera footage at the Miami Publix where you had your accident may be destroyed after a certain period. Additionally, store employees or other witnesses who saw your accident might move away or lose clear recollection of your injury.
By demanding damages as soon as possible, we increase our odds of collecting valuable evidence that could make a difference in your case.
