Orlando Trip & Fall Lawyer
A trip and fall accident generally refers to a situation in which a person trips and falls due to a dangerous condition on someone else’s property and is injured as a result. These cases fall under the broader category of cases known as “premises liability” cases. All property and business owners are responsible for keeping their premises in a reasonably safe condition. Each year, thousands of people become injured because property owners either fail to keep their premises in a safe condition, or fail to warn the public that an unsafe condition exists on their property, contact our Orlando trip & fall lawyers today.
Trip and fall accidents occur in many places including businesses (grocery or department stores, restaurants, shopping malls, office buildings), public property (sidewalks, government buildings, parks, parking lots) and private residences. They are caused by a wide range of hazardous conditions, including poor lighting, loose rugs or carpets, broken steps, uneven flooring, and potholes.
Trip and fall accidents can be embarrassing and may not seem like a very serious event when they occur, but they can lead to serious injuries arising weeks or months after the incident. If you were injured while on another’s property, you may be able to recover damages. In order to recover, a person who was injured in a trip and fall accident while on someone else’s property must show that the property owner or occupier acted negligently, causing the injury. If the injury occurred on property owned by a local, state or federal government entity, special rules generally apply. Florida has enacted laws that grant governmental entities immunity or shield the entity from liability for personal injuries that occur on their property.
