How to Prove Negligence in a Slip and Fall Accident

When bringing a slip and fall claim, the plaintiff must demonstrate that the accident resulted from a property owner, manager, or occupier’s negligence. To do this, you must prove that the liable party had a duty to maintain safe premises, which they failed to do. You must also show that you suffered your accident and incurred damages as a result of the carelessness.

The at-fault party or their insurance provider will often attempt to deny the blame by claiming you were the reason for the slip and fall accident. But a skilled slip and fall accident lawyer can evaluate your claim and collect evidence that proves how the property owner’s negligence directly led to your accident.

Florida adheres to comparative negligence when assigning liability in a personal injury claim. Each party receives a percentage of fault, which dictates how much compensation you may be eligible to receive through your injury claim. That means that if you are partially at fault for the accident, you can still pursue recovery at a reduced rate. 

Our Legal Team Establishes Liability for Your Slip and Fall Accident

When someone visits your property, it is your responsibility to provide a safe environment for them. For example, if a business owner doesn’t warn customers about slippery surfaces and someone gets injured, they can face consequences under premise liability laws.

Determining liability in such cases can be difficult, especially if you attempt to take on the case alone. But with the assistance of an experienced slip and fall accident lawyer in Boca Raton, you can hold every party (there may be multiple) accountable for their negligent behavior.

When we investigate your slip and fall accident, we will use the following to collect evidence and prove how the at-fault party caused your injuries:

  • Witness statements: Our lawyers contact individuals who saw your accident occur and collect unbiased accounts from them.
  • Video or photographic evidence: Your attorney will collect any photographic or video surveillance footage to analyze all the circumstances that contributed to your fall.
  • Injury reports: We obtain medical reports to determine the extent of your injuries and how they will impact your life. Then, we use this data to calculate your total settlement.

Compensation You Can Pursue in a Slip and Fall Case

Your slip and fall injury attorney will help you collect compensation for every damage you incurred as a result of your accident. This includes recovering tangible losses like lost income as well as non-economic damages like emotional anguish. In addition, if we believe the at-fault party acted willfully, we may also seek to obtain punitive damages.

In a slip and fall case, you can expect to recover reimbursement for:

  • Medical treatments
  • Ongoing care costs and long-term medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of wages and future loss of income
  • Transportation costs
  • Home adaptation expenses
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

The legal process for resolving a slip and fall accident case can be overwhelming, confusing, and exhausting. However, our attorneys are experienced and can handle every aspect of your case so that you can focus on recovering from your trauma.

Deadlines for Filing a Slip and Fall Suit in Florida

In Florida, you have four years from the date of a slip and fall incident to bring a legal claim. However, the statute of limitations can vary based on who the liable party is and the involved parties. Therefore, it is best to let a slip and fall accident attorney evaluate your claim as soon as possible.

Our Boca Raton slip and fall accident lawyers take every case seriously, and we want to help you secure the compensation you deserve. Therefore, if our law office takes on your slip and fall claim, you can expect our attorneys to take immediate legal action. 

Top Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents in Boca Raton

Most falls, especially ones that result in serious injury, occur as a result of dangerous conditions. Some of the most common causes of slip and fall injuries include:

  • Wet and slippery floors: If the property has wet floors and the owners do not mark them clearly, you can sue the business for your injuries.
  • Uneven surfaces: Property owners are responsible for keeping flooring even. If there are elevation changes, they must mark them, so visitors are aware of the danger. Property owners who fail to maintain a safe premise can face personal injury lawsuits.
  • Inadequate lighting: All areas on a property should be well-lit. If the areas are too dim, and someone falls because of it, the business may face legal consequences.
  • Broken railings or steps: Property owners must maintain safe stairwells, and failing to do so can make them liable for a slip and fall accident.
  • Clear pathways: All walkways and aisles must be clear of debris. If not, a victim may sue the business or homeowner for neglecting to maintain a safe premise.

A slip and fall accident can also occur anywhere, with the most common places being:

  • Stores
  • Restaurants
  • Shopping centers
  • Private apartments or homes
  • Public pavements and sidewalks

With nearly 60 years of combined legal experience, our Boca Raton slip and fall accident attorneys know how to build a strong case based on solid evidence. We are committed to holding liable parties accountable and securing the settlement you deserve.
