Fort Lauderdale Slip and Fall Lawyer
If you or a loved one has been injured due to a property owner’s negligence in maintaining safe conditions, you need a Ft. Lauderdale slip and fall attorney. Do not allow an insurance company to talk you into accepting a settlement that may be far less than what you are entitled to under Florida law, instead call and discuss your case with one of our experienced injury attorneys.
Filing a Claim
Slip/trip and fall accidents are more complex than one may realize. Business and property owners and lessees have a legal obligation to maintain safe premises and adequately alert/warn patrons and customers of potentially harmful and hazardous situations. If they fail to do either or both, they may be held liable for your slip/trip and fall injuries. Often times, the insurance company will attempt to quickly settle with the injured if they know their insured is liable for the slip and fall accident. Not only will you be at risk of obtaining far less compensation than you deserve, but the full extent and scope of the injuries sustained in the slip and fall accident may not present for several weeks or even months.
The experienced and aggressive slip and fall attorneys at Kogan, DiSalvo will protect your rights and fight for every dollar you deserve for your injuries and losses.
How Accidents May Occur
The following are examples of hazardous situations that can lead to a slip and fall accident:
- Slippery or sticky floors, puddled rainwater, spilled food or liquids
- Uneven or damaged sidewalks and walkways
- Poorly maintained walkways
- Slippery or damaged stairs
- Construction sites lacking adequate warning of tripping hazards
If you have been injured in a slip/trip and fall accident, you may suffer from great economic loss in addition to the pain and suffering caused by your injuries.
