Florida is a popular destination, whether for a year-round home in Jacksonville or Sarasota, a winter oasis of warmth in Tampa or Orlando, or just the annual family vacation in Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, and beyond. It’s also a major economic hub, where thousands travel yearly on business.
Whatever the reason for your stay in Florida, personal injury attorneys know too well the ever-present risk of getting injured. Slip-and-fall accidents are a leading cause of emergency room visits in the U.S. and a common occurrence in Florida. Unfortunately, many are unaware that they may be entitled to compensation for their injury, which could include treatment costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Slip–and-fall injuries can occur on residential property, like a family member’s home, or commercial property, like a gym or grocery store. Some of the most common causes include the following:
The immediate aftermath of a slip-and-fall incident can be embarrassing and overwhelming. But after you’ve taken a few moments to gather your thoughts, and if it’s safe to, do three things:
Many people need financial help after a slip-and-fall injury but do not want to deal with the cost of hiring an attorney or the stress of managing the case themselves. The good news is that most personal injury attorneys provide work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you do not pay a cent unless you win your case and receive a settlement.
Other people assume they are at fault for their injury and can’t file a lawsuit. It will be challenging to determine whether you have a viable personal injury claim without discussing precisely what happened with an experienced attorney familiar with the ins and outs of slip-and-fall injury cases like yours.
After evaluating your situation, a seasoned slip-and-fall accident lawyer can quickly execute steps crucial to your physical and monetary recovery, giving you an idea of what to expect and how the case will proceed.
With a slip-and-fall compensation lawyer on your side, it will be much easier to fight and win your case and receive the maximum amount of money possible.
