Premises liability claims, often known as slip and fall or trip and fall incidents, occur every day in Florida throughout, to name a few, restaurants, shopping malls, stores, and even private properties.
If a person slips or trips and falls as a result of a dangerous condition on another person’s property, the landowner or business owner may be legally responsible for the injuries suffered by the victim. Slip and falls may occur as a result of substances on the ground or floor such as water, oil, food, or other hidden dangerous conditions. It is absolutely critical that, after such an incident, you insist on speaking with a manager, filling out an incident/accident report, and obtaining a copy of the report. If you are too badly injured to fill out such a report, insist a document is provided to you confirming the incident took place at the location wherein it occurred.
The laws in Florida govern circumstances in which an individual is injured due to the dangerous conditions of a commercial or residential property. Due to the nature of litigating a premises liability matter and the complexities of the statutes and case law involved, it is extremely important to retain attorneys such as Geoffrey Pelosi to represent your interests.
