Slip and Fall Accidents

When out walking, most people don’t think they’re doing anything risky. However, many thousands of slip and fall accidents occur across the country each year. At the Miami, Hollywood, and Homestead offices of Flaxman Law Group, we regularly get individuals calling us in search of a slip and fall accident attorney.

In many cases, slip and fall accidents are serious enough to warrant medical attention and in a few cases, these injuries prove fatal. Slip and fall accidents can occur for many reasons — because of uneven sidewalks, because of puddles or ice and snow on walkways, due to inadequate lighting, because of obstructions on walking surfaces, or because a property has not been made accessible. In each case, a serious injury can occur if a property owner does not take care to keep walkways safe. If you slip and fall because a property owner has been negligent, contact the qualified Florida attorneys at Flaxman Law Group. The professionals at Flaxman Law Group have helped many accident survivors, and we can help you.

What Is a Slip and Fall Accident Claim?

This means that your Florida lawyer must prove that the property owner was negligent, and that the negligence or recklessness led to your injury. This can involve proving that the owner knew about unsafe conditions and that the owner did not warn visitors or tenants. Whether an unsafe condition was permanent or temporary may also be important in your case.

While you may be tempted to brush off a slip and fall, it’s important to take your injuries seriously. If you have hit your head, for example, you will want to visit an emergency room. A head injury can be fatal, and you want prompt medical treatment to prevent tragedy.
