Liability in a Slip-and-Fall Injury Case in Florida

In most cases, slip-and-fall accidents occur because of a property owner, manager, or tenant’s negligence. The property owner may have knowingly or unknowingly created a dangerous situation that caused the accident. There are many types of hazardous conditions that can contribute to a fall.

In those cases, in which the slip-and-fall happens at a workplace because of employer negligence, it can be claimed under workers’ compensation. Similarly, if the slip-and-fall happened because of a broken road, you may have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible government entity. Slip-and-fall lawsuits are often complex and hard to prove.

This makes it important to work with an experienced slip-and-fall attorney in Florida. Our accomplished attorneys at The Alvarez Law Firm will be able to determine the exact nature of the accident and hold all the at-fault parties liable for your injuries. The statute of limitations for different types of civil lawsuits will vary, making it necessary to take swift action.
