PLANTATION SLIP AND FALL ATTORNEYS
Plantation is a city with a population of approximately 85,000 people. Located in central Broward County, Plantation is considered a part of the Miami Metropolitan Area and sits between Lauderhill, Sunrise, Davie, and Fort Lauderdale. Although this growing city’s motto is “The Grass is Greener,” the heavy foot traffic in the area makes it just as likely for someone to be injured in Plantation as in any other Florida city.
SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENTS: WHO IS AT FAULT?
Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere – whenever there is a hazardous condition that may cause a slip, trip, or fall. According to Florida law, if such an accident occurs on someone else’s property – whether it is someone’s house, a shopping center, the grounds of an apartment complex, public transit, or a parking lot or sidewalk – the owner of that property may be liable for damages incurred. This is called a “premises liability” case: If a property owner has not adequately maintained properties where there is public access, and/or has failed to provide caution signs warning of present hazards, then an individual who is injured on that property may sue for compensation for their injuries.
If you have been injured due to such conditions as poor lighting, faulty handrails, uneven flooring, slippery items or liquids on the floor, unsafe stairwells, cracked sidewalks, or any other hazard that should have been addressed by the property owner, you may have a strong slip and fall accident case. Because there is a statute of limitations on Florida premises liability cases, it is essential to begin the legal process as soon as possible.
CONCERNS AFTER A SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENT
People injured in Plantation premises liability accidents have many concerns to deal with. Perhaps your medical insurance has a high deductible – or you have no insurance to pay your medical bills. Your injuries may be severe enough to put you out of work temporarily or even make it impossible to continue your current type of employment. Some slip and fall accidents may even be fatal, in which case the victim’s family must deal not only with the grief of their loss, but will also have funeral expenses, and suffer the loss of future income of their loved one.
