How We Will Fight for You After Your Slip and Fall Accident
After your slip and fall accident, you may be suffering from painful injuries that impact your ability to work or go about your day-to-day life. You may need help paying for the medical bills you have accumulated because of your injury.
We can help you build a premises liability case to hold the responsible party or parties accountable for your accident and injuries. Here is how we can help.
Building Your Premises Liability Case
First, our team will investigate your slip and fall accident to uncover evidence to build your case. We will speak with witnesses, gather official reports like police and medical records, and look through CCTV footage. Then, we will assemble this evidence so that we can prove that the following criteria apply to you.
- Duty of care: In order to prove that you are owed compensation, we will need to show that you were legally on the property and not trespassing. Florida Statutes 768.075 states that trespassers are not protected under the law. We will show that you were owed a duty of care by the property owner. They should have kept you safe on their property.
- Negligence: Then, we will show that the property owner violated this duty of care through a negligent act or omission.
- Causation: Next, we will prove that this negligence is what caused you to slip and fall.
- Damages: Finally, we will prove that your slip and fall accident resulted in losses (called “damages”) for which you can be compensated.
Once we have built your case, we will use this evidence to fight for your rights. Insurance companies will often try to pay you less than you are owed at first. We know this, and we will not settle unless it is in your best interests. If we cannot negotiate for the amount you deserve, then we will take your case to court.
Negligence in Premises Liability Law
When you are on someone else’s property, they owe it to you to keep the premises safe so that you are not injured. If they fail to do so, they may be held liable for their negligence. When we investigate your accident, we will look for evidence of the following so that we can build your case:
- Uncleaned spills
- Obstructed paths
- Uneven surfaces
- And other defective property conditions that could cause someone to trip and fall
Even if the property owner was not aware of a defective condition on the property, they may still be held liable if they should have known. This can be proven by things like:
- Witness statements
- Video footage showing that the dangerous spill or uneven surface was a recurring or persistent problem.

Comparative Fault in Slip and Fall Accidents
Even if you think you may be partially at fault for your accident or injuries, that does not mean you cannot pursue compensation for your losses. In fact, Florida operates based on a principle called “comparative fault.” This gives you options if you share blame for what happened. As long as you can prove that the party you are suing was more responsible for your injuries than you were, then you can still recover damages.
So even if you are not sure that you have a case, you should still reach out to our team. Our slip and fall accident lawyers have experience helping people like you. We can take a look at the facts and advise you of your best options.
