What is Slip and Fall?

Miami & Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

A slip and fall accident includes anytime you lose your footing and fall due to an unmaintained or unsafe walkway, aisle, parking lot, or other area where pedestrians or shoppers may be. Slip and fall accidents frequently occur on public sidewalks, in department stores, and at swimming pools, but can occur anywhere you are walking. To file a slip and fall claim, our personal injury attorneys must establish that a property was not properly maintained, and you were injured as a result.
Proving Negligence
Proving negligence is not always as simple as it sounds. We will need to conduct an investigation into the cause of your accident to make sure that blame is properly assessed. This may require testimony from both you and witnesses to your slip and fall accident. We will also need to prove that your injuries demand legal action. This will necessitate medical records, as well as personal testimony regarding the impact your injuries have had on your working, social, and family life.
We will work closely with you during every step of your claim and fight to ensure you receive the full compensation you are due.
