Comparative Negligence May Affect Slip and Fall Claims
Once a Jacksonville neck injuries lawyer begins working on your premises liability claim, one of the goals of your case will be to prove negligence. Property owners may make accusations that you caused the slip and fall or that you were also to blame for your subsequent damages from the fall.
If your slip and fall accident reaches court, the 2019 Florida Statutes § 768.81, which deals with comparative fault, may come into play. This statute may determine how much compensation you can still recover if you share any fault. In some cases, the property owner may argue that your neck injuries from a slip and fall at their establishment occurred because you entered a restricted area where visitors are not allowed, or that perhaps you were distracting yourself while using a cellphone.
When comparative negligence is at play, you might see your potential financial compensation get reduced, based on the percentage of fault you contributed to the accident. When looking to build a premises liability case against a property owner, call the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine at 1-800-747-3733.
Neck Injury Symptoms May Be Felt in Other Parts of the Body
According to MedlinePlus, neck injuries can also cause victims to experience pain in their jaw, shoulders, head, and upper arms. The pain itself can be caused by tension in your neck or from a muscle strain. MedlinePlus also lists neck swelling as a chief symptom of neck injuries.
Your treatment options for a neck injury can vary. Some treatment procedures include cervical laminoplasty, epidural steroid injections, and halo-gravity traction.
