Proving Negligence and Liability
As described by the American Bar Association, a person can be held liable for your personal injury claim if it is proven that they were liable. In the case of your broken hips or pelvis from a slip and fall in Jacksonville, your personal injury lawyer would have to display four elements of negligence against the property owner:
- Duty of care
- Breach of care
Essentially, a public establishment’s duty of care means that they must keep their property free of dangerous hazards or conditions that could lead to an injury. This is further outlined in Florida Statute §768.0755, which states that “the injured person must prove that the business establishment had actual or constructive knowledge of the dangerous condition and should have taken action to remedy it.”
A breach of care simply means that the property owner breached their duty of care for you and failed to recognize the hazard or take action when the condition was foreseeable. Causation simply means that the condition at the public establishment was the direct cause of your slip and fall and your broken hips or pelvis. Finally, your Jacksonville broken hips or pelvis lawyer may help you prove that you suffered related damages from your slip and fall, such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

Comparative Negligence During Slip and Fall Claims
When insurance companies or the property owner believes you are also responsible for your slip and fall, you may end up forfeiting some of your settlement money per a certain percentage of your fault, as described under Florida Statute §768.81. A Jacksonville broken hips or pelvis lawyer from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine may be able to build a strong liability case to avoid comparative negligence with a thorough investigation.
