Orlando Slip & Fall Lawyer
Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere. However, the type of property where an accident occurs may determine the types of injuries suffered and the ability of victims to pursue compensation. The city of Orlando is rife with areas of heavy foot traffic and crowds—busy, congested places where slip and fall accidents are likely to occur, especially if property isn’t well-maintained. We’re talking about shopping malls, amusement parks, airports, sports arenas, and other commercial properties. If you or a loved one was injured while out and about in Orlando due to a dangerous property condition, such as a spill or fallen object, our Orlando slip & fall lawyers can help you pursue fair compensation for your injuries.
Types of Dangerous Property Conditions Causing Slip & Fall Accidents
While property owners cannot be expected to prevent every single slip and fall accident that occurs on their property, negligent acts by a property owner (or manager in charge of maintaining property) may give rise to liability, and the legal responsibility to compensate injury victims. Examples of negligent property maintenance include:
- Failure to clean up a spill
- Failure to repair a broken step
- Failure to fix cracked or uneven floors
- Failure to clean up debris, such as boxes, trash, and equipment
- Failure to provide adequate maintenance on elevators and escalators
- Failure to post warning signs around a hazardous condition
- Failure to provide workers with warning signs for posting around a hazardous condition or dangerous location
- Failure to respond to complaints about a hazardous condition or dangerous location
With many slip and fall accidents, the only way an injury victim can receive fair compensation is through civil litigation. A premises liability claim can cause property owners (and their insurers) to take a slip and fall accident seriously, and, ultimately, help the victim recover for losses such as medical expenses, rehabilitation fees, lost wages, and pain and suffering. It is common for property owners to deny responsibility for slip and fall accidents, leaving victims struggling with significant financial burdens. So if you have been hurt in a slip and fall accident, talk to a lawyer. You have nothing to lose, and a lot to gain—your wellbeing, dignity, justice, and a safer Orlando for all of us.
