Slip and Falls
Slip and fall accidents can happen in stores, restaurants, parking lots, and other public places when property owners do not take due care to keep their premises clean. These accidents can happen due to unaddressed leaks, spills, dangerously slippery floor surfaces, and for other reasons, and the results can be devastating. Each year, the team at Flaxman Law Group works with slip and fall injury survivors who turn to our legal team and slip and fall attorneys for fair compensation for their injuries.
Each year, people in Hollywood, Homestead, Miami, and across the country suffer broken bones, back injuries, traumatic brain injuries, other injuries, and even fatalities as a result of slip and fall accidents. In fact, over 8 million emergency room visits each year happen due to slip and fall injuries.Do You Have a Slip and Fall Claim?
If you have fallen in any public place, you will want to alert the manager or property owner and you'll want to take photos of the surrounding area. If you are injured and your injuries were caused by someone's negligence – such as a property manager failing to clean a spill promptly – you may have a premises liability claim and may be able to seek compensation for your medical bills, lost income, and other losses. Contact a personal injury attorney to find out whether you may have a claim.Work With an Experienced Slip and Fall Injury Claims Attorney
My name is Charles Flaxman and I founded Flaxman Law Group to help people who have been injured by slip and fall accidents and other types of injuries. In the decades I have practiced law, I have seen up close how devastating and common slip and fall incidents really are.
Slip and fall accidents have become the butt of some humor in our society because people are embarrassed when they fall, and sometimes these cases have developed a reputation that's undeserved. Many people that have fallen, in my experience, have suffered some of the most devastating injuries -- and I've seen many of them in my years as a trial lawyer. So don't dismiss these claims.
I represented a woman that was injured in a supermarket when she was removing ice cream from the freezer case. Behind her was a cart that was used by the stock boy to unload groceries. He left it in the aisle even after he had finished using it. She wasn't aware of it and backed up to leave the store and fell down, fracturing her hip. The store argued she should have seen the cart; the lighting was good and she's responsible for her injuries, the store claimed. I argued that the stock boy should have removed the cart when it was empty. After all, people are looking at the shelves for products that stores want to sell. That's their job, and then they blame people when they're looking at the products that they want to buy. Ridiculous! We got my client the money she deserved.
