While the phrase “slip and fall” does not inspire terror the way some injuries do, falls are actually a leading cause of many debilitating injuries, including brain trauma, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones. If you suffered a serious injury due to a slip and fall, you know this all too well. After a serious fall, you might be wondering:
- How will I pay my medical bills?
- How will I afford my bills if I cannot work?
- Will I need ongoing therapy or rehab?
- How do I prove someone else was responsible for my injury?
- What should I do if they deny it?
- Should I hire an attorney?
- Where can I find a qualified slip and fall injury lawyer in Deerfield Beach?

Regardless of How Your Accident Happened, We Can Determine Who Was Responsible and Seek Compensation.
There are countless reasons a slip and fall injury might occur. Even if you attribute your injury to your own clumsiness, a simple fluke, or stroke of bad luck, you owe it to yourself to speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible. It could be that someone else bears liability for your injuries and you do not even realize it. Only a thorough investigation into the circumstances of your injury by one of our skilled attorneys can uncover exactly who was responsible.
If your injury occurred due to any of the following, contact us so we can investigate further:
- A slippery floor in a public place or private residence;
- Uneven or cracked pavement on a sidewalk, driveway, or parking lot;
- A loose or missing stair in a house, apartment, condo, or business;
- A loose or missing handrail on a stairwell; or
- A tripping hazard on the floor or ground, such as a hard-to-see wire or electrical cord.
Even if something else caused your injury, call us so we can investigate. There is almost always more to a slip and fall injury than what is readily apparent. Our attorneys can evaluate your case, answer your questions, and conduct an extensive investigation into the cause of your accident.
How Can I Hold Someone Else Liable for My Slip and Fall Injuries?
Personal injury is a field in which the skill and experience of your attorney matter a great deal. Florida law states that property owners and managers must keep their property safe from hazards. If they become aware of a potential hazard, they must fix the problem quickly and warn visitors of its existence. If the property owner failed to uphold this duty of care in your case, we can hold them responsible for their negligence—and liable for your damages.
The language of the law is ambiguous in parts, however. A few loopholes are present, such as the property owner not having a duty of care to a trespasser or someone who cannot establish they were an invited guest. However, a property owner cannot try to deliberately injure a trespasser, such as with booby traps or an intentional hazard.
When you work with an attorney from the Law Firm of Anidjar & Levine, you know you have an advocate on your side with a winning track record. Our attorneys know the law and all its quirks and nuances.
How Much Is My Slip and Fall Case Worth?
Another complex area of personal injury law involves the different forms of compensation for which victims are eligible. You know you need money to pay your medical bills and all the other obligations that continue to pile up whether you can work or not. Those are not the only damages you can win in a slip and fall injury case, however. The attorneys at the Law Firm of Anidjar & Levine fight for all of your accident-related damages.
We do not just pursue the responsible party or parties for medical bills you have already incurred. We also go after them for costs we expect you to incur in the future. These expenses could include rehabilitation, physical therapy, chiropractic care, surgical procedures, medication, medical devices, and more.
Lost Wages and Reduced Earning Capacity
If you have to miss work while recovering from your injury, we will seek compensation from the responsible party to make up for your lost income. If your injury leaves you temporarily or permanently unable to return to work and earn a living, we will seek compensation for those losses as well.
Pain and Suffering
We will seek damages to compensate you for the pain you have experienced due to your slip and fall injury. It is impossible to quantify your pain in dollar terms, which is why you want the best and most aggressive attorney who will fight for the most money possible in your case.
If someone’s malicious act or gross negligence caused your injury, we can seek punitive damages on top of all the other compensation for which you qualify. Punitive damages are a form of compensation a judge can order to punish a party for particularly heinous, reckless behavior.
