HOLLYWOOD SLIP AND FALL ATTORNEYS
Hollywood, in Broward County, is the 12th largest city in Florida, with a population of nearly 150,000. With over 5 miles of beach, nearness to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, and public transit access on both Tri-Rail and Broward County Transit buses, Hollywood businesses are thriving. This is good for the local economy, but can also lead to a growing number of slip and fall accidents at businesses in the area. Slip and fall accidents can cause injury or death. When these accidents occur on a property owned by an individual person, an organization, or a business where the public is invited, accident victims may have legal recourse to collect damages for their injuries, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
High traffic areas in Hollywood include:
- Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino
- Hollywood Beach Boardwalk
- Downtown Hollywood
- Arts Park at Young Circle
Business and property owners have a legal responsibility to keep their premises free of hazards that could cause injury to visitors. When an owner fails to maintain a property and a slip and fall accident occurs, the injured party has the option of taking legal action against the individual or business. Some of the hazardous conditions that may be responsible for slip and fall accidents include unsafe construction, poorly-designed or damaged stairwells, poor lighting, obstructed aisles, liquid spills, malfunctioning equipment, inadequate security, or uneven surfaces on indoor floors or in parking lots.
Although the cause of an injury incurred in a slip and fall case may seem obvious, according to Florida law, the causation must be proved. It must be proven that the property owner was negligent in maintaining the property and/or providing adequate caution signs to prevent visitor injury. If a settlement cannot be reached between the victim and the business or property owner, the case may go to trial. If this happens, you may need witnesses to both the hazardous condition and the accident, as well as expert witnesses such as property management experts or safety engineers, to prove your case in court.
