How Do I Prove My Slip and Fall Case?

Slip and fall cases have proven to be a complicated area of the law. Thorough investigation of the details is critical and facts that may seem trivial, such as the length of time a puddle has been on the floor before an accident occurred, or whether the victim was alerted to the danger, can make a huge impact as we expertly begin to build your case.

In order for you to be awarded compensation in a slip and fall case, the property owner must have been negligent and the injuries you sustained must be directly related to the owner’s negligence.  Slip and fall cases can often require extensive legal knowledge to establish who should be held responsible.  It is imperative that you work with attorneys that have extensive experience in this area of law in order for you to get the best result for your case.



Slip and Fall Accident FAQ's

Maybe – it depends on exactly what caused your injury. One of the most common defenses property owners and businesses use against claim filers is that you were responsible for your own injury. For example, you tripped over a box in the middle of an aisle in a store while looking at your phone. The store owner and their insurance company might argue that the only reason you tripped over the box instead of avoiding it is because you were looking at your phone instead of where you were walking – and they might be right.

However, your partial culpability doesn’t necessarily forgive the property owner’s negligence. Florida is a pure comparative fault state which means you may still be owed compensation even if you’re found to be partially or mostly at fault for your own injuries. Just because you share some or all of the responsibility for your own injury doesn’t mean you’re not owed any money for your medical costs, lost wages or pain and suffering.

If the insurance company is attempting to deny your claim for this reason, it may be time to speak with a slip and fall injury attorney.

There are scenarios where visitors to a business can be injured by a hazard that doesn’t justify a personal injury claim. The types of hazards for which you can hold a carless or reckless business responsible are those that the business:

  • Knew about
  • Should have known about
  • Failed to warn visitors about despite knowledge of them
  • Failed to fix despite having time to do so prior to the injury occurring

  • Disputes can arise over whether the hazard that caused your injury meets those qualifications. If another customer caused some kind of hazard to appear and the property owner didn’t have time to notice it or fix it before your injury, they might have a valid defense against your claim.

    The success of your slip and fall claim may be determined by what was and wasn’t reasonable.

    Maybe an employee had been in the area and missed a puddle that you slipped in, meaning the business did have an opportunity to spot and fix the issue but failed to do so. Maybe the employees failed to adhere to patrol schedules to spot spills. Maybe another customer reported a spill, but the employees failed to put up a wet floor sign or mop up the spill in a timely manner.

    All those situations may be considered negligent and justify a personal injury claim. Unfortunately, businesses aren’t always forthcoming with that type of information. You may need to work with a personal injury lawyer to ferret out negligence on the part of the business or property owner.
