Brandon Slip & Fall Attorney

It is a safe assumption that most of us have slipped and fallen at one point or another in our lives. While the vast majority of slip and fall accidents result in little more than a minor bump and perhaps some embarrassment, these incidents have the potential to result in extremely serious injuries. According to the National Safety Council (NSC), nearly 9 million people visit emergency departments each year because of injuries sustained in slip and fall accidents. In many cases, these injuries leave victims with significant medical expenses and lost income as a result of being unable to work for an extended period of time. Fortunately, these and other losses associated with slip and fall injuries are often recoverable from the person or party at fault for the accident. Consequently, victims of slip & fall accidents should be certain to discuss their accident as soon as possible with a Brandon slip & fall attorney in order to determine whether they have a legal right to recover.

Slip & fall accidents can be caused by negligence

In order to recover compensation after a slip and fall accident, victims must be able to establish that their accident was the result of the negligence of the party responsible for the maintenance of the property. In many cases, this party is the property owner, but it could also be a person or business who is leasing the property from someone else. Some common examples of hazardous conditions that are often the result of negligence include the following:

  • Exposed electrical wiring
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Liquid spills
  • Cracked pavement
  • Torn carpeting
  • Debris in walkways
  • Uneven stairs
  • Open holes
  • Stairwells without railings
  • Slippery floors

Whether these or other hazardous conditions were actually the result of negligence is dependent on a variety of factors. As a result, anyone who has slipped and fallen on someone else’s property should discuss their options with an experienced premises liability attorney who is familiar with representing slip and fall accident victims. In addition, victims should be sure to record as much information about the incident as possible, including taking photographs of the scene, obtaining contact information from any witnesses to the accident, filing an official incident report, and making note of any conditions that may have contributed to their fall. Finally, anyone involved in a slip and fall accident should be certain to undergo a complete medical evaluation conducted by a professional as soon as possible after the accident. The official medical record generated by such an evaluation can have a significant impact on the outcome of your case should it become contested.
