Start Preparing Your Compensation Case Right Away
You have probably heard of a statute of limitations—the time the state allows for a plaintiff to file a civil lawsuit. While you may know what a statute of limitations is, you may not be aware of the specific filing deadline that governs your case or its critical importance.
An expired filing deadline can mean the at-fault party’s legal team may request—and is likely to receive—an immediate dismissal of your lawsuit. If that happens, you could be left with no legal recourse to compel the at-fault party to compensate you. Our team can make sure you know how it applies to your slip and fall accident case and works hard to ensure it does not run out.
Personal Injury Statute of Limitations
A slip and fall accident that occurs in Pensacola is governed by Florida Statutes §95.11(3)(a). It generally entitles you to four years to file your lawsuit. This statute of limitations applies if you or someone you love was injured in the accident. The circumstances of your accident may alter the filing deadline, so the best way to help ensure compliance is to consult a member of our legal team right away.
Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations
A slip and fall accident can be dangerous and even fatal. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), accidental falls result in 32,000 fatalities annually. If someone you love was fatally injured in a slip and fall accident, Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d) generally entitles you to two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Define the Cause of Your Accident
Determining and proving the cause of your fall can help establish the basis of your personal injury lawsuit. According to the Florida Department of Health, commonly reported causes of unintentional falls include collisions, physical assaults, and faulty equipment. Slip and falls can also happen because of:
- Overlooked spills
- Slick floors
- Slippery steps
- Cracked sidewalks
- Defective ladders
- Faulty scaffolding
Through evidence-gathering, witness interviews, and our independent investigation, we can determine who and what caused you to fall.
When a negligent party causes your accident, they are usually financially liable for your subsequent medical care. The degree and severity of your injuries will dictate the cost of your medical expenses and can include:
- Accident-scene care
- Emergency room fees
- Hospital admissions
- Required medications
- Assistive medical devices
- Long-term rehab and therapy
Our case evaluation team members will help you carefully track your past and future medical expenses so that you can include them in the value of your lawsuit.
Other Injury-Related Expenses
In addition to your medical bills, the at-fault party is also liable for other financial and non-financial losses that stem from your injuries. We help you track these additional costs and include them in your lawsuit:
- Wage and income loss
- Property damage or loss
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional distress
A slip and fall accident lawyer on our Pensacola team can help ensure your injury-related expenses are accurately assessed and that your lawsuit is accurately valued before settlement talks get started.
Build Your Evidence File
Your evidence file serves a dual purpose—it proves the cause of the accident and establishes the value of your lawsuit. In it, we will include:
- Extensive medical records
- Relevant financial records
- Official car accident report
- Witness statements
We also add photos to your evidence file that we obtain from witnesses and our own investigation. In addition, if we get involved in your case early enough, we can also canvass the area where the accident occurred for additional video footage and witnesses.
