Torn ligaments and tendons are unique in their own ways and have their share of differences, as described by Healthline. Currently, if you are dealing with a torn ligament as a result of a slip and fall injury in Jacksonville, you may also be dealing with a sprain.
Tendons that are torn or overstretched can also be identified as sprains. Sprains typically impact the back, foot, or legs. If you have recently seen a doctor for your torn ligaments and tendons, they may advise you to rest, apply ice to the trouble area, or elevate your body. They may also prescribe you medication.
If you and your family are worried about covering the medical costs associated with your injuries, you may want to speak with a Jacksonville torn ligaments and tendons lawyer from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine about your options.

What You Need to Know About Florida Premises Liability Law
At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, a Jacksonville torn ligaments and tendons lawyer can help you maneuver around Florida’s premises liability laws shortly after you begin to work with us. A key statute to consider regarding premises liability at a public establishment is Florida Statute §768.0755. This statute states that property owners must keep their establishment reasonably safe and free of hazards or dangerous conditions.
Property owners must also take quick action to address a hazard if they are aware of it (or should have been aware of the condition). If they cannot quickly compromise the hazard, a property owner must make the existence of the hazard evident for visitors—so they can avoid the danger. This statute is only relevant to your claim if you were either an invitee (such as a customer) or a licensee (a social guest). Under these two circumstances, a property owner can be deemed liable for your injuries.
Another important statute to consider is Florida Statute §768.81, which deals with comparative fault during a premise liability injury claim. This statute of comparative negligence states that you could receive less compensation depending on what your proportion of fault is determined to be.
