Slip and fall
If you have experienced a slip and fall accident, it’s not fair for you to bear the many consequences related to it simply because a third party did not comply with the safety regulations necessary to avoid these types of accidents. We are not just talking about the physical injuries you have incurred. Still, the cost and inconvenience the accident entails, such as loss of wages if you can’t return to work or medical expenses incurred from the injuries.
That said, it’s important that you are well-informed of the legal rights available to you as a victim of a slip and fall accident. Such as receiving fair compensation for the pain and suffering you have experienced as a result of the situation.
It’s also important to consider the time factor, as it can work against you for various reasons, including:
- The complaint must be filed within the Statute of Limitations. In Florida, anyone who is injured in a slip and fall must get their lawsuit filed against the property owner within four years of the incident. This deadline is found in the Florida Statutes section 95.11(3)(a), which applies to almost all personal injury cases in Florida’s civil courts.
- Minor injuries can disappear over time, so they must be evaluated and recorded early by a licensed medical professional.
- You may not show signs of injuries, or some injuries may change by not following proper medical recommendations. In turn, this can be to the advantage of the third party to reduce compensation or avoid payment altogether.
- Time is of the essence in preserving evidence such as videos, marks, or any other condition that existed at the time of the incident. Therefore, it is key to hire or contact an attorney as soon as you experience a slip and fall.
