Slip and Fall Accidents: When to Contact a Personal Injury Attorney

If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident in Southwest Florida, you’ll want to contact a personal injury attorney to discuss your options. If you were injured as a result of negligence and/or liability by another party, you may be eligible to collect damages.

Examples of liability may include:

  • A slip and fall accident that occurred in a retail store because management failed to clean a puddle of water

  • An injury that occurred because a properly owner failed to recognize and remedy a dangerous condition, such as an uneven walking surface or pothole

  • An injury that happened because a property owner (or an employee of the property owner) did something to cause the dangerous condition.

    • For example: if an obstacle was placed in a path and someone would have needed to step over it, and it would have been reasonable to foresee that this could have caused someone to trip and/or fall, the property owner may be liable

Things to keep in mind

  • If you’re thinking about filing a slip and fall lawsuit you may be wondering how long it will take before your case is resolved. A lot of this will depend on the details of the case; some are settled in a few months while others may take years.

  • Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be eligible to receive compensation for lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering and other types of out-of-pocket expenses. Your attorney will be able to help you understand how much of a settlement you may be eligible for in addition to helping you understand the timelines that are generally associated with this type of case.

  • Your attorney will also ask you about any and all evidence you may be able to provide that could help support your case. This may include everything from the clothing and shoes you were wearing at the time the incident took place, photos of your injuries, surveillance footage (if it’s available), witness statements, copies of medical records and whether photos were taken of the dangerous condition that caused your injury.
