slip and fall
A slip and fall injury happens on someone else’s property or land. If a person trips or falls and gets a physical injury, this is considered negligence, and the owner may be responsible and pay for the damage. If the injured party has the proper representation and evidence, he or she may be entitled to compensation. These types of incidents can harm and cause:
- Neck and back injuries
- Fractures in the bones
- Brain Injuries
- Ligament Sprains
When you suffer a slip-and-fall, try to record and take pictures of all the relevant details after you have recovered from your shock. You have up to four years under Florida law to bring a claim and expect compensation. However, if you act early, you will be able to resolve your medical issues more quickly and possibly receive higher compensation.
