West Palm Beach Slip & Fall Lawyer

Unfortunately, a 30-minute errand to pick up eggs and vegetables can turn into an overnight stay at the hospital. Gravity and friction sometimes have different things planned for us than what we would like. The cause of a slip and fall could be a freshly mopped floor at a fast-food restaurant, spilled juice at the grocery store, or a stray power cord at a home improvement store. Common injuries include broken collarbones, fractured hips, concussions, and spinal injuries. 65-69 year-old women that fracture a hip are five times more likely to die within the year than women of the same age who did not fracture a hip, according to a study carried out by Kaiser Permanente. While three out of four hip fractures happen to women, the danger for men is still great too. In fact, for women aged 65 and over the mortality rate in the year following a broken hip is 20.8 percent, while for men of the same age that mortality rate is 30.9 percent. Contact our West Palm Beach slip & fall lawyers for more information.

After a fall, medical bills can pile up, you may lose income from lost work, and the pain and suffering, both mental and physical, can be harrowing. In the state of Florida, the law imposes a duty of care upon all business establishments in regards to keeping a safe premises. When safety measures are disregarded and this duty of care is violated, resulting in a slip and fall, you may be able to get compensation for your injuries. Call one of our West Palm Beach slip and fall lawyers today to discuss your legal options.

West Palm Beach Businesses Owe a Duty of Care to their Invitees

Florida law has imposed a duty of care on business for many years. This duty of law requires business owners to keep their premises reasonably safe for all their customers and visitors. This duty also states that once-per-day inspection of the premises is not enough to ensure safety. Business owners must remain attentive at all hours of admittance to invitees. By disobeying this duty, businesses can be deemed negligent, and can be held accountable in the case of a slip and fall. If the business owner had actual or constructive knowledge of the unsafe condition of their premises, such as a slippery floor caused by a transitory foreign substance, like water, the owner may be held liable if they chose to do nothing about the problem. Let our West Palm Beach slip, trip and fall lawyers help you.

Take Action if You Have Had a Slip & Fall Accident at a West Palm Beach Business

Proving that the owner of a business had knowledge of their unsafe establishment can be very difficult. Owners will claim ignorance to any dangerous conditions, and that the slip and fall was no fault of theirs. The first step a slip and fall victim should take is to record evidence of the conditions. Take pictures, have the manager make a report of the incident, get witness testimony as well as their full names and contact information. Keep the shoes you were wearing in the same condition that they were in when you slipped and fell; do not wear or clean them afterwards. Taking photographic evidence of the premises is vital. Seek medical attention and be honest with your doctor about your injuries. Lastly, contact an experienced West Palm Beach slip and fall lawyer at The Pendas Law Firm. Call us today for a consultation and we will walk you through your legal options. Our West Palm Beach slip & fall lawyers will provide you with the legal guidance to get your life back on track.
