Trip and Fall Accidents
When trip and fall accidents leave you suffering serious injuries, Ged Lawyers, LLP helps you get the compensation you need to recover.
Slips, trips, and falls are among the most common types of accidents. They can leave you suffering serious personal injuries, resulting in permanent impairments that impact your ability to work or engage in hobbies and activities you enjoy. At Ged Lawyers, LLP, we provide the aggressive legal representation you need in this situation. Our Boca Raton trip and fall attorneys hold negligent property owners accountable, so you can get the compensation you need to recover.
How do Trip and Fall Accidents Happen?
According to statistics from the National Safety Council (NSC), slip, trip, and fall accidents impact close to 10 million people each year and are a leading cause of death and disability. They often happen in public places, such as grocery stores, malls, office buildings, resorts, and restaurants. While victims are often inclined to blame themselves when a trip and fall occurs, in the majority of cases it is negligence on the part of the property owner which is ultimately to blame.
At Ged Lawyers, LLP., we protect the rights of victims in these cases. Common causes of injuries in cases our experienced Boca Raton trip and fall accident attorneys represent include:
- Wet, slippery floors due to spills or condensation;
- Torn carpeting and loose tile;
- Cluttered aisles;
- Poor lighting;
- Lack of handrails on stairs and at heights;
- Uneven walkways, loose paving stones, and a lack of proper landscaping in outdoor areas.
Get the Compensation You Need to Recover From Your Injuries
Trips and falls are no minor mishaps. They can cause serious damage that impacts your health and your financial security for years into the future. To protect yourself and your rights in a claim, it is important to report the incident to the property owner and seek medical attention immediately. Common types of injuries suffered in trip and fall accidents include:
- Soft tissue injuries, such as muscle strains or sprains;
- Broken bones and dislocated joints;
- Back and neck injuries, resulting in slipped discs, fractured vertebrae, and damage to the spinal cord;
- Head injuries, resulting in a concussion or traumatic brain injuries.
Under the Florida Statutes, property owners are responsible for maintaining the premises and for warning visitors of any dangers that exist. When they fail to do so, they can be held liable through a personal injury claim.
At Ged Lawyers, LLP, our Boca Raton trip and fall accident attorneys aggressively negotiate with the property owner and their insurers on your behalf. If a reasonable insurance settlement cannot be reached, we will not hesitate to take them to court. Our goal is to ensure you get the maximum amount you need to recover.
