SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENTS IN FORT LAUDERDALE
Fort Lauderdale can be hectic. It may not be as congested as Miami, but it is still very busy. The first areas that may come to mind when we think of crowded places where people can slip & fall may be popular hotspots like Fort Lauderdale Beach, Las Olas Riverfront and all of its great bars and restaurants. Even a person who may not like to go out to these areas can still run into examples of premises negligence in places like the Swap Shop, the Galleria, Whole Foods or even the local Publix Supermarket.
UNDERSTANDING SLIP AND FALL NEGLIGENCE AND CLAIMS
Property owners have a responsibility to provide a safe walking area for visitors. Unfortunately, there are many cases in Fort Lauderdale where property owners lose sight of this and the result is a tripping hazard or dangerous walking condition that causes a slip and fall accident. Reports show that there are over one million Americans injured due to slip and fall injuries each year. Even more shocking is the fact that this does not include a large number of people who are hurt in a fall and say nothing.
So why do some people do nothing when they are injured in a slip and fall accident? They could be embarrassed if it happened in public (like most slip and falls do). A person in this situation may want to get up as quickly as possible and just keep moving even if they can feel they may have been injured in the fall. A person may also assume it was probably their fault and they should have been paying more attention. This may be true in some cases, but there are many other times where the cause of the fall is not as obvious as a spilled drink.
There could be a building code violation, design flaw or other tripping hazards that had not been attended to or repaired by the property owners.
