Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers West Palm Beach

Slip and fall accidents in West Palm Beach can make a seemingly normal activity into a painful and lengthy legal process. These accidents can lead to lost wages or earning potential (if unable to work again), hefty medical bills and ongoing rehabilitation and medical costs. However, if this accident occurred on someone else’s property, it’s possible that the property owner is negligent for your injuries. This means that they failed to properly maintain a safe environment for those invited on their property. As a result of this failure, they may be obligated to compensate you for injuries sustained in a slip and fall accident and for that breach of the duty of care that caused your slip and fall accident.

Therefore, the best thing to do is to work with slip and fall lawyers in West Palm Beach that has the skills, resources, and experience necessary to get you the fair settlement that you deserve as a result of your injuries.

Understanding Liability for West Palm Beach Slip and Fall Accidents

Liability for Florida slip and fall accidents rely on comparative negligence. This means that you, the injured victim, may bear some of the blame for the accident. However, the amount of shared fault will be determined in court proceedings. Pure comparative negligence rules in Florida are used to determine the share of legal blame for an accident and how much compensation can be received from a property owner. Any damages awarded to a personal injury plaintiff is reduced by the amount of fault they hold for the accident in West Palm Beach.

As slip and fall lawyers in West Palm Beach, our job is to build a strong case against the property owner to ensure that their amount of blame for the accident is higher than 50%. If not, you will not receive any compensation. We must prove that the owner breached a duty of care they owed you as an invited person on their property. As an invitee, you were invited on their property. This means that the property owner holds a duty of care to maintain safe conditions to you and to warn you of any dangers on the property. During our investigation of your slip and fall accident case, we will also determine whether or not the property owner could have prevented the slip and fall accident and/or if they attempted to fix the hazard.

FAQ: What are some things that your slip and fall lawyers in West Palm Beach do in order to establish a strong premises liability case?

Our legal team obtains photographs or video surveillance of the area where your slip and fall accident occurred. We also attempt to gather testimony of any witnesses to your accidents (if applicable). We obtain any reports of the accident for documentation and investigate whether or not there have been prior accidents on the property. Lastly, we document your injuries and obtain medical reports and test results that prove your injuries.

FAQ: I took a fall at a local grocery store, can I sue the store for my injuries?

While the facts of the cases will determine the answer to this question, the store itself did have a duty to keep their floors safe for their customers. If a slippery floor causes a fall, an experienced attorney would help injured clients to prove that the store knew of the substance on the floor and failed to clean up the mess before their accident.
