Assigning Liability in a Slip and Fall Case
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), slip and fall accidents are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries. Every year, over 800,000 people are hospitalized due to injuries sustained from falling.
For your slip and fall case to be successful, your legal team will need to prove that the party responsible for your losses either knew or should have known about a potential danger.
Under Florida Statute §768.0755, your Jacksonville paralysis traumatic brain injuries lawyer could hold a property owner responsible for your losses if:
- The hazard existed for so long that somebody should have discovered it.
- The hazard occurred with such regularity that somebody should have discovered and remedied it.
Additionally, your lawyer must establish four elements in your case.
These factors include:
- Duty of care. The property owner had a duty of care to make the premises safe for guests.
- Breach of care. The property owner violated their duty of care by allowing a potential hazard to remain on the premises.
- Causation. The unremedied hazard caused an accident in which you were injured.
- Damages. You have incurred financial losses as a result of the property owner’s negligence.
