Why Do Slip and Fall Accidents Happen?

Did you know that over one million people visit the hospital each year because of slip or trip and fall injuries? Most of the reasons for slip and fall injuries are the result of negligence. This means that the injury could have been easily prevented if the property owner fixed the hazard. Under Florida law, property owners owe a duty to their invited guests or “invitees”, whether a place of business or someone’s home.

Business owners and homeowners can be held responsible for injuries sustained by a guest while on their property. Property owners are required by law to inspect the property and fix any dangerous conditions. If a property owner fails to reasonably ensure that his property is safe for invitees, he can be held liable for negligence.

What Types of Injuries Can Occur?

The terms “trip and fall” and “slip and fall” can be misleading because it may make you believe that injuries related to these accidents are not that serious. On the contrary, slip or trip and fall accidents can be debilitating, and sometimes even lead to death. The most common injuries that can occur from a slip and fall incident include broken or fractured bones, brain injuries or trauma, contusions, back injuries, and hip injuries.

When a slip and fall/trip and fall happens and results in serious harm or wrongful death, the damage can be more than just physical injury. It can also lead to a mountain of financial expenses and added stress.

Who is Responsible for a Slip and Fall Injury?

If someone is injured from a slip and fall accident due to the negligence of the property owner, the victim may be able to seek damages. Slip and fall or trip and fall accidents that were caused due to preventable dangerous conditions are those that may be able to be pursued in court. Rather, in these types of situations, the property owner may be held accountable for failing to create a safe situation for visitors. More ways to determine if a property owner is responsible for a slip and fall accident include:

Where the Accident Occurred

If the accident happened in a public place that invites customers to do business, then it is likely that the property owner will be held accountable. Businesses have the highest responsibility to ensure that the premises is a reasonably safe place for patrons. They must also warn visitors of any dangerous conditions that they know about.

How Bad the Injuries Are

If the injuries are severe, and the accident could have been prevented, there is a higher likelihood that the property owner will be responsible. If the injuries sustained from a slip/trip and fall accident cause the victim lost income, emotional distress, medical bills or even death, an attorney can help to proceed with a case against the property owner.

Absolutely hands down an amazing TEAM! From the person who answers the phone to the Legal Secretaries and the Lawyers. We had such a difficult case that even the Jusge mentioned he doesn’t do Writ of Posession that often. I was impressed with the extensive knowledge and professionalism that Mr. Wagner and Mrs. Melich have as well as their staff. Very efficient and responsiveness was nothing more than excellent. Most importantly, they won the case and we couldn’t be more humbled to have this resolved as this was my Grandparents home.

– Erika J.

My finance’ and I hired Daniel to handle the closing of our first home purchase, and we were more than ecstatic with our choice to retain his services. First, the closing was timely and without any issue. Secondly, we received a credit towards our title insurance premium, which as first time home buyers, saved us much needed cash that we put towards our new furniture. Lastly, his support staff was prompt, helpful and professional. Our calls were always taken and our concerns addressed. We will be using Wagner & Associates for our future legal needs!
