Compensation For Slip-, Trip-And-Fall Accident Victims

Most insurance companies do not treat slip-and-fall injury claims seriously. Many refuse to pay compensation even for medical expenses, arguing that the victim should have watched where he or she was going. It often takes an aggressive attorney to obtain results.

At Dolan Dobrinsky Rosenblum, LLP in Miami, our lawyers have secured significant recoveries for slip-and-fall accident victims throughout South and Central Florida, a substantial verdict for a 56-year-old mother of two who slipped and fell in the common area of her apartment, fracturing a bone in her spine. If you have been injured in a fall due to property owner negligence, call 786-401-4708 or 800-610-9491 for a free case evaluation.

When Are Property Owners Responsible For Slips, Trips And Falls?

In Florida, property owners are responsible if you are injured due to an unsafe property condition that they knew about or should have known about. Examples include:

  • Cracked or broken sidewalks
  • Slippery floor conditions
  • Missing hand rails on stairs
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Misplaced objects that create a tripping hazard
  • Code violations
  • Spilled liquids

In the case of the mother who slipped and fell on slick marble, a floor of the common area of her apartment building has been renovated with marble, which is a violation of local building codes. Marble becomes very slick when wet and should not be used on floors of public buildings.

To prove liability in slip-and-fall accident cases, our attorneys must show that the property owner was aware of the unsafe condition, or should have been aware, and did not take steps to correct it.
