SLIP & FALL

Millions of people are hospitalized each year for “slip and fall” or “trip and fall” related injuries. These accidents occur when property owners fail to ensure that their property is safe for guests. They have a duty to maintain their property and warn of dangerous conditions.

Common dangerous or unsafe conditions may include:

  • Wet or slippery surfaces

  • Uneven surfaces and walkways

  • Inadequate handrails

  • Torn or ripped carpets

  • Poor lighting

Navigating an injury claim after a slip and fall accident can be challenging. Florida law places the burden of proof on the injured party to show that the fall was caused by a dangerous condition for which the property owner either knew or should have known. Thus, you must act quickly to preserve all evidence and identify any witnesses. If you attempt to handle the case on your own, the insurance company will not give you the money you deserve. At Ruckle Law, P.A., we will assist you in pursuing the compensation and support you need after an accident.
