After someone else’s negligence has left you injured, you may be overwhelmed with all of the issues that arise.

Serving clients in Orlando and throughout Central Florida, our firm is committed to aggressively standing up for our clients’ rights. We have the experience and the resources to handle any type of personal injury matter, including slip and fall accidents.
When a slip and fall occurs on someone else’s property, is often the result of negligence on the part of the property owner. If this is found to be the case, you may be able to recover compensation for the harm you have suffered. We take the time to examine all aspects of your premises liability claim and act against all negligent parties in order to help with your rehabilitation. Slip & fall accidents can result in painful injuries, which often mean missed time at work and can prevent the injured from completing everyday tasks. Most slip and fall injuries can be prevented by property owners taking the proper care to provide safe conditions for their visitors and workers.
Slip and fall accidents can happen due to:
- Unkempt walkways and steps
- Poorly lit hallways and staircases
- Cracked and damaged sidewalks
- Stores without displayed warning signs
- Loose or missing handrails
These accidents can happen at work, in stores, at other people’s homes, and public buildings. Those parties that failed to maintain a safe environment can be held liable for your injuries.
Our Law Firm Can Help Injured People Obtain Compensation
Our attorneys offer experienced legal help to people who have been injured due to unsafe property conditions. We handle serious injuries such as broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, neck injuries, back injuries, and any other injury sustained in your fall. In Florida, property owners, retail store owners, grocery stores, large corporations, and other premise owners can be held liable for your injuries if negligence was the main cause of your slip and fall accident.
Florida Slip and Fall Laws
Whether you decide to file a claim with the property owner’s insurer or go to court with a personal injury lawsuit, there are two important laws and statutes to consider:
- The statute of limitations deadline for filing a slip and fall lawsuit
- “Shared fault” rules may affect your right to recover compensation if you bear some amount of responsibility for the accident
In Florida, anyone who is injured in a slip and fall accident must file a lawsuit against the property owner within four years of the accident. Florida’s comparative negligence rule will be a factor in your slip and fall case, even if the case does not make it to trial. In settlement negotiations, the property owner’s insurance company (and/or their attorney) are concerned with what may happen if your case goes to court. You can expect any slip and fall settlement offer from the other side to show their view of your role in causing your own injuries as seen by Florida’s shared fault rules. Therefore it is very important to make a strong liability case against the property owners.
