When You Slip and Fall, it May Not Be Your Fault

When you’re in a public place in Pembroke Pines and you slip and fall, your first instinct is to pop back up, smile, and brush off the embarrassment with an “I’m fine” and go on about your day. However, there are two extremely important things to consider: What caused you to fall? Are you really okay?

Though your thoughts may not naturally turn toward a Pembroke Pines injury lawyer, they probably should … at least until you have thoroughly considered the above questions. If you suffered the fall due to negligence on the part of the property owner, then they are legally liable for the fact that you fell at all, not to mention that you want to ensure that no one else suffers the same fate if the problem is not corrected.

With regard to the second question, slip and fall victims who think they are fine at the scene often find out later that they are not fine, after all. Certain types of injuries may have delayed-onset symptoms, so unless you are absolutely certain that your skinned knee is the extent of your damage, its best to seek medical attention followed by a legal consultation with a personal injury lawyer.

A loose tile, rickety handrail, wrinkled carpeting, and even insufficient lighting are a short list of the safety concerns that a property owner is responsible for correcting to ensure that patrons are safe while on their property. Also remember that a slip and fall injury does not have to come from a literal “slip and fall,” but any type of injury due to hazards on a premises may constitute a slip and fall case, also known as a premises liability case.
