SLIP AND FALL MISCHARACTERIZATION
The term "slip and fall" carries with it an unfair connotation of minor injury and questioned liability. We here at JJ Frick Law strongly disagree with this unfair and patently false categorization of slip and fall injuries.
Slip and fall accidents many times involve serious injuries such as a traumatic brain injury (TBI), broken bones, fractures, lacerations, or internal injuries. However, even in cases of a minor injury our firm prides itself on its willingness to consider every case no matter how big or small. Our team understands premises liability law and the statutes that impact your case.
EXPERIENCED IN PREMISES LIABILITY LAW.
Premises liability litigation can prove to be a tricky path to recovery for many victims. This is because you not only have to prove your injuries are related to the fall, but you have to prove the property owner is responsible for the fall in the first place. Liability in these types of cases is not as clear-cut as it often is with motor vehicle accidents. Unfortunately, Florida law dictates that a victim of this type of negligence has to clear certain hurdles to succeed in a premises liability claim. Your choice of attorney is crucial to your claim, as you need an aggressive and knowledgeable attorney who understands these laws inside and out in order to navigate the tricky landscape of premises liability law in Florida.
SEEKING JUST COMPENSATION FOR INJURIES
The causes of slip and fall accidents vary greatly, from improperly placed mats or rugs to hidden drop-offs or potholes. Other common slip and fall injuries occur in grocery stores or businesses which fail to maintain their property in a reasonably safe manner, by leaving water spills on the floor or not cleaning up materials left on the ground for someone to slip or trip over. This failure to keep property safe for the public is a direct violation of Florida law. Therefore, when people get hurt on their poorly maintained property, the owners of that property should be held liable.
Be it an injury stemming from a negligently maintained sidewalk, a foreign object or liquid on the floor of a business establishment, open or hidden hazards in construction areas, or any other type of injury wherein the unsuspecting victim falls prey to another's negligence, JJ Frick Law will aggressively investigate and litigate your claim.
