When you enter a store or patronize a business, you don’t spend your time worrying about being injured; property owners are expected to maintain safe premises. That can make an injury due to property negligence feel even more unjust.
The Clay County slip and fall accident lawyers from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine understand your feelings and want to do something about them. We can help you pursue compensation for your injuries and hold the liable party accountable. Together, we can help make Clay County safer. We offer a free initial consultation where we review your legal options with you.
What Compensation Can You Receive for a Slip and Fall?
Any costs related to your fall injury could be eligible for damages, such as:
- Emergency expenses
- Hospital bills
- Rehabilitation costs
- Lost income
- Pain and suffering
- Reduced earning capacity
- Property damage
Our treatment of your case is holistic – an injury doesn’t just affect you physically; it is connected to all areas of your life. From recouping treatment costs to repaying missed wages, we fight for specific bills and losses. Likewise, from acknowledging your pain to recognizing its lifelong impact, we pursue damages that compensate you for your unique trauma.
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Diagnosing and treating a TBI can involve:
- Imaging tests
- Physical therapy
- Speech and language therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Anti-seizure medications
- Other prescriptions
- Mental health support
Unsurprisingly, TBIs cost more than other injuries, often requiring hospital stays that are two days longer and 74 percent more costly, according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). More severe TBIs carry lifelong expenses. In short, this can devastate your life and finances.
If this happened to you, you deserve damages that reflect how your life has been changed. The slip and fall accident attorneys from our team can work with your Clay County doctor to pursue damages equal to your injury.
Injuries in Older Adults
Seniors are especially prone to falls, and when they fall, they have a harder time recovering. According to the CDC, 3 million older adults are treated for falls in the emergency department annually. Many fall injuries are hip fractures, which carry the risk of other complications.
Given the increased danger to older adults, we take their slip and fall cases very seriously. As reported by Healthcare.gov, a three-day hospitalization averages around $30,000. Add in the longer recovery and rehabilitative times, and seniors can face significant expenses.
At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, we stand up for injured older adults like you. We won’t let insurance companies undervalue your expenses or experience. However long it takes for you to recover, your costs should be compensated.

What Are the Grounds for a Slip and Fall Case?
Living in and visiting Clay County should not involve regular fear of injury. When you spend time on the St. Johns River, enjoy a concert, or attend a festival in the area, property owners should mitigate the risk of slipping, tripping, or falling.
As a result, you could have grounds for a case if you fell due to:
- Leaks and puddles
- Unsecured cords
- Loose flooring
- Insufficient lighting
- Lack of signage
- Obstructed walkways
For example, if a water recreation business on the St. Johns River did not properly stow ropes and gear or warn visitors to watch their step, they could be held liable for injuries.
Even if you’re unsure if you have grounds, we can explore your options and investigate your case.
The party we hold responsible for your injury depends on the type of negligence you suffered. The liable party could be:
- Property owners
- Maintenance workers
- Equipment manufacturers
Your deadline for a lawsuit also depends on the party responsible. You generally have four years to file a personal injury suit (Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a)), but if you sue a municipality, that timeline drops to six months (Florida Statutes § 768.28(6)(a)(1)).
Don’t worry – when we identify the liable party, we also determine how long you have to file.
