According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), falls are the leading cause of brain injury in the United States. Slip and fall and trip and fall accidents are a frequent cause of injuries to children and seniors. As a matter of fact, slip and fall and trip and fall accidents cause nearly 50% of all brain injuries to children under the age of 15 and nearly 61 % of all brain injuries to adults aged 65 years and older. If you slipped or tripped on someone’s property and have suffered any type of serious injury, such as a concussion or brain injury; broken bones; or herniated discs, we are here to help you on the path to recovery.
Many injured victims ask, “Can I sue an owner for an injury on their property?” While the answer depends on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to recover compensation from the property owner’s insurance company or sue negligent property owners. Under Florida law, property owners, property managers, agents, landlords, and other entities in control of the property have a duty to reasonably maintain their property and ensure it is free from dangerous and defective conditions. They are required to repair hazards within a reasonable period of time and, if there are known dangers that cannot be remedied, they must provide adequate warnings. Property owners who fail to ensure that their property is reasonably safe for visitors may be held liable for any of the resulting injuries or damages.
