Slip and fall accidents can lead to serious injuries, leading to high treatment costs. When someone else’s negligence was the reason you slipped and fell, they should be responsible for paying for your accident-related losses.
If you or your loved one suffered injuries in a slip and fall, a Port St. Lucie slip and fall accident lawyer with Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers can help you explore your options for seeking financial recovery. If someone else caused your accident, we will ensure you and your family do not pay the price.
Our Attorneys Will Fight for Fair Recovery for Your Damages
We know that medical bills and other slip-and-fall damages can add up. If you have a severe injury, you may have ongoing expenses. Calculating your compensation may not be as simple as adding up your current bills. It is important that you point out the full scope of your losses. This can help ensure that you receive compensation for all of your damages.
Our Port St. Lucie personal injury lawyers can help you identify your out-of-pocket expenses and estimate your expected future damages. If necessary, we can enlist help from economists, vocational experts, and healthcare professionals. In general, we can pursue compensation for the following:
- Medical expenses,including the cost of surgeries, rehabilitation, hospitalization, prescription drugs, long-term nursing care, and any other necessary treatments
- Severe physical harm,including permanent and disabling injuries, scarring, disfigurement, and loss of mobility
- Mental and emotional suffering,including depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), fear, anxiety, and loss of enjoyment of life
- Lost income,including benefits, bonuses, and loss of future earning capacity
- Other expenses,including the cost of damaged personal property and the cost of any household services you may need
A lawyer from our firm will assign a value to your case. This will allow you to pursue fair compensation from the at-fault party.

The extent of your injuries and treatment, your income at the time of your accident, and how your injuries interfere with your life could all affect your settlement. We will fight for your fair compensation.

We Can Help You File a Lawsuit After a Slip and Fall Accident
If you suffered from a slip and fall accident, you can file a lawsuit against the party who caused your injury. Each state sets deadlines for filing lawsuits. These are outlined in the statute of limitations. In Port St. Lucie, you will have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit, per Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a).
Filing a lawsuit can help you recover the compensation you need to get your life back on track. Since you don’t have forever to file a lawsuit, you might decide to work with a slip and fall attorney who can help your case get filed on time.
If you do not take action before the statute of limitations expires, the court will most likely throw out your case, and it could also hurt your chances of receiving a settlement. Our team will help you understand the filing deadlines and get your lawsuit filed on time.

We Will Hold Property Owners Liable for the Condition of Their Premises
Property owners in Florida owe those legally on their premises (i.e., those not trespassing) a duty of care. This means they have an obligation to keep buildings and grounds reasonably safe. Our Port St. Lucie slip and fall accident lawyers can hold residential and commercial property owners liable for injuries caused by negligent conditions, including:
- Wet and slippery surfaces
- Broken concrete
- Loose or cracked floorboards or tiles
- Inadequate lighting
- Broken stairs
- Lack of railings or banisters
- Torn carpeting
We Will Collect Case Evidence
Collecting evidence and applying it under the law can be challenging for someone without legal experience, especially when also dealing with an injury. Our legal team can interview witnesses, obtain documents, track down any available cell phone or surveillance footage, and prove an at-fault party owes you compensation.
We Will Advocate for You
We will not let insurance agents or opposing attorneys intimidate you, blame you for your accident, or push you into accepting a lowball settlement. We will handle all of your case-related meetings, phone calls, and emails. We will protect your rights and stand up to bad-faith tactics.
In every interaction we have, we will aggressively fight for a fair outcome for your case. If we cannot secure compensation through negotiations, we will not back down from representing you at trial.
