NORTH LAUDERDALE SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS
Slip and fall accidents, or “premises liability” cases in legal terms, are instances in which a person falls and incurs an injury due to hazardous conditions on another person’s (or company’s) property. Legal cases regarding slip and fall accidents center on the property owners’ duty to regularly check and maintain their property, to warn visitors of any potentially hazardous conditions, and to remove or repair hazards in a timely manner. Any dangerous conditions that arise due to negligence, lack of maintenance or oversight, jerry-rigged repairs, inadequate signage, poor lighting, or a host of other causes can bring about a slip and fall accident for which the victim may be able to sue for compensation for their injuries.
HIGH TRAFFIC AREAS CAN LEAD TO SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENTS
North Lauderdale is located in north-central Broward County. It is adjacent to Margate (to the North), Coral Springs (to the North East), Tamarac (West and South), Fort Lauderdale (East side) and Pompano Beach (North East). Surrounded by so many large cities, North Lauderdale sees its fair share of high traffic. When businesses try to save money by cutting corners – either with minimal staffing or by putting off professional repairs of faulty equipment – the result can be hazards such as frayed carpeting, loose or missing handrails, slippery or uneven surfaces, patchy or rutted sidewalks and parking lots, poorly lit areas, or piles of goods stacked to unsafe heights. Injuries incurred due to any of these or other hazards may be grounds for a premises liability case.
If you have slipped or tripped and fallen recently while on a North Lauderdale business’ premises or another person’s private property – it is very important to visit a doctor as soon as possible. Not only may you have hidden injuries of which you are not aware, but immediate medical attention may decrease the chances of permanent damage – especially harm to the spine, neck, and/or joints that can become worse with continued movement. A visit to the ER or doctor also is the best way to document injuries incurred in the fall, which will be particularly helpful in the event of a premises liability lawsuit. Slip and fall accidents can cause serious, life-changing injuries, including spinal cord damage or head trauma. Such injuries can cause chronic pain or other symptoms that reduce both your ability to earn income and the quality of your life.
