Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers Plantation, FL

No one expects to be injured. However, the reality is that a slip and fall can lead to chronic physical pain, loss of employment, and ever-increasing debt. The worst part is that your injury could have been avoided if the premises where your accident occurred had been properly maintained by the property owner. You may feel hopeless, but you are not alone.

At the law office of Lawlor, White & Murphey in Plantation, FL, our experienced slip and fall accident attorneys can assist you with the investigation and liability determination for your injuries. A property owner has a duty to behave reasonably and protect their “guests” from avoidable injuries. There are three classifications for what it means to be a “guest” on a property. Your status on the property alters the required standard of care and duty of the property owner to protect you from any slip and fall.

Proving Liability for Plantation Slip & Fall Accidents and Obtaining the Best Results for the Injured

According to Florida law, there are three (3) classifications of persons on an owner’s premises with a different level of duty required:

  1. An invitee is a person with permission to be on the premises and whose presence confers some benefit to the property owner. (You may or may not have been “invited” to the property).
    • For invitees, premises liability is the highest. Property owners must affirmatively maintain their property in a safe condition, warn of any dangers of slip and fall, and inspect the property to correct and prevent any dangerous conditions. Examples of invitees are persons who enter a grocery store, public library, or the mall.
  2. A licensee is a person who has permission to be at the location but whose presence does not confer a benefit to the property owner.
    • This means that a social guest at a party might not be considered an invitee but a licensee.
  3. A trespasser is on the property without the permission of the property owner.
    • Even if you are classified as a trespasser, and on the property without permission, the property owner still has liability for your slip and fall injuries. The key is whether the property owner has behaved negligently or recklessly. The property owner’s actions will be evaluated by using a reasonable person standard.
