Bradenton Slip & Fall Lawyer

Slip and falls send millions of people to emergency rooms every year. Indeed, 2.3 million people are treated in hospitals for fall injuries annually, and falls are the leading cause of injury death among older citizens, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Over 27,000 senior citizens die from falls each year. But it is not just those 65 and older that are prone to serious injury and death from a slip and fall caused at an unsafe business. Falls are one of the leading causes of injury for most age groups, commonly resulting in the following types of injuries:

  • Fractured wrist;
  • Fractured ankle;
  • Fractured hip;
  • Fractured femur;
  • Torn ACL tendon;
  • Torn meniscus;
  • Back injury (spinal cord damage, spinal column damage, chronic back pain);
  • Concussion or other traumatic brain injury);
  • Contusions;
  • Lacerations; and
  • An injury that leads to other health complications, such as infection and declining health that leads to death.

Transitory Foreign Substances: You Must Be Able to Prove Real or Constructive Knowledge On the Part of The Store Owner

According to Florida statute 768.0755, after a slip and fall on a transitory foreign substance, an injured person must prove that the business owner had either real or constructive knowledge that the dangerous condition existed, and therefore should have made an effort to fix it. Constructive knowledge is comprised of:

  • “The dangerous condition existed for such a length of time that, in the exercise of ordinary care, the business establishment should have known of the condition; or
  • The condition occurred with regularity and was therefore foreseeable.”

Proving that the store owner had knowledge is often more difficult than it seems.

A Lawyer Will Ensure That You Receive The Financial Compensation That You Deserve

In Florida, it is a legal requirement for store and business owners to keep all walking areas reasonably clean and safe at all times when invitees are present. A violation of this requirement could lead to a civil lawsuit, which are heavily disputed by the party’s insurance carrier. Our lawyers have vast experience dealing with large insurance companies and businesses that have taken measures to cover their tracks after a patron falls and becomes injured. Not all fall victims are able to take photos of the slip and fall scene, talk to store managers, and jot down eyewitness contact information right after being injured. This is why working with an experienced lawyer is crucial in all slip and fall cases. You may be offered a low settlement in hopes that you and the insurance company’s problem will just go away quickly and quietly. However, we seek to provide our clients with every dollar that they are owed.
