Slips and Falls
When a property owner is negligent in repairing, maintaining, and clearing hazardous conditions from the premise, you can slip, trip, and fall while on the property. According to The 2019 Florida Statutes Title 45, Chapter 768, you may claim compensation.
Likely places for slip and fall accidents include commercial buildings, construction sites, parking lots, private homes, and public institutions. There are some measures to take after a slip and fall accident, including:
- Get the details of the property managers or owner
- Avoid using words that might jeopardize your claim, for instance, apologizing and blaming yourself for the accident
- Get witness contacts
- Take pictures or record a video of the scene and your injuries
- Inform your insurance company
- Seek medical attention
The owner of a property, whether private or public, has to caution you about the potential dangers that can cause injuries. Call us to talk about how our Winter Garden personal injury lawyer may handle your slip and fall case.
Insufficient lighting usually causes a person to fall down a staircase; however, several other negligent conditions can lead to injuries on staircases.
Dangerous handrails are a recipe for disaster. Handrails can be unsafe if they are not visible, of inappropriate height, not easy to grasp, have incorrect spaces between them, and have weak fasteners.
Additionally, irregular stair treads and risers can prevent you from establishing a steady pace while walking on stairs. You can lose balance, stumble, and fall when using such stairs.
An electricity company must ensure safety because of high voltage lines. Companies must use reasonable care in the inspection, installation, and repairs of electrical wires. Furthermore, the electricity companies should check equipment and power cables regularly to prevent injury.
In private homes, the owner must ensure electrical safety. Homeowners must hire qualified electricians to repair any high voltage electrical cable that can cause injuries to visitors.
Irregular street surfaces, parking lots, and sidewalks can be dangerous. The state or public institution tasked with the responsibility of repairing defective sidewalks is accountable for your injuries if they happen in public areas.
Such claims often necessitate the help of highway designers, architects, and engineers to establish the hazardous conditions that caused your injuries.
