Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers Hollywood, FL

Personal Injury Attorneys Persistent About Recovering Compensation for Clients Injured in Hollywood, Florida Slip and Fall Accidents

The circumstances that can cause a slip and fall accident are seemingly endless—you could fall down a poorly maintained stairway in an apartment complex, slip-on algae on the walkway leading up to a store or trip over a pothole at the local pool. Regardless of the cause, if you were not on your own property at the time the accident occurred, someone else’s failure to properly maintain the property could be what caused your accident and resulting injuries. Property owners are legally obligated to maintain their property in a safe condition and must take steps to warn you about any dangers on the property even if they have not yet had a chance to complete the required maintenance.

All of the slip and fall accidents described above would have been entirely preventable had the property owner even placed some simple orange cones or yellow tape to warn of the danger—a precaution that could be accomplished in a matter of minutes. Many slip and fall accident victims do not initially realize that the property owner has a legal duty to maintain the property—which even extends to the areas surrounding the property, such as the parking lot and walkways. At Lawlor, White & Murphey, we are ready to put our combined 55 years’ worth of experience to work in recovering compensation from the property owner whose negligence caused your Hollywood-area slip and fall accident. Contact us today to schedule a no-cost initial consultation to tell us about your accident and how it has affected your life.

Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents in Hollywood, Florida

While we may be fortunate enough to avoid most slip and fall accidents caused by snowy or icy conditions in Hollywood, slip and fall accidents still happen and can be caused in a variety of different ways—some of which may even be weather-related, including debris from summer storms negligently left by property owners.

Establishing that the Property Owner Was Responsible for Your Slip and Fall Accident in Hollywood, FL

The duty of care that property owners owe to others on the property depends upon why the injured party was on the property to begin with. Store and other business owners are subject to the highest standard of care, and must both maintain the property in reasonably safe condition and conduct inspections designed to discover any hazards on the property. When a hazard is discovered, the property owner must take steps to warn customers about that danger to prevent any injuries. Many injuries caused by slip and fall accidents in Hollywood can end up being much more severe than most would initially think. These injuries can include:

Lawlor, White & Murphey Will Fight for the Compensation You Need to Recover from Serious Slip and Fall Accident Injuries in Hollywood

The available compensation after a slip and fall accident will depend upon the nature of the accident itself, the type of injury sustained and the characteristics of the accident victim. For example, if the victim is elderly, trips over an uneven rug and breaks his or her hip, the recovery time and care necessary to heal is likely to be much more extensive than if a teenager had tripped over the same rug and broken a wrist. This is why our experienced lawyers take the time to get to know each and every one of our clients and fight to win compensation for:

Frequently Asked Questions About Hollywood Slip and Fall Accident Claims

FAQ: Did my slip and fall accident have to occur in a business in order to have a valid claim for compensation for my injuries?

No. Business owners owe a heightened duty of care to their customers and those that they invite onto their property, which generally adds the inspection element of the duty. Despite this, all property owners owe a duty of care to anyone who they invite onto their property, and this involves maintaining the property in a reasonably safe condition to prevent injuries. For example, if you were at a public pool when your slip and fall accident occurred, you may have a claim for compensation depending upon the circumstances. If you were invited to a party at a private home when your slip and fall accident occurred, you may also have a claim for compensation (which would usually be a claim against the homeowner’s insurance policy).

FAQ: How long do I have to sue after a slip and fall accident?

Slip and fall accidents fall under the umbrella of personal injury claims, and almost always proceed upon a negligence theory of liability. This means that in Florida, you have four years to file a formal lawsuit. Remember, this does not mean that you should wait four years to call a slip and fall accident attorney because evidence can disappear within that long four-year window and make it more difficult to establish how and why your accident happened.
