Slip and Fall Accidents

Did you know that over a million people every year visit the emergency room as a direct result of an injury caused by a slip and fall? The term itself does not fully convey how serious these injuries can be.

Sure, in some cases, a slip can result in a small bruise or scrape. But many times falls caused by negligence result in broken bones, permanent scarring, and even loss of life. Murray and Associates is here to answer all your questions about slips and falls.

How Do I Know if My Slip and Fall Case is Valid?

Your best resource for gauging the validity of your claim will always be an attorney. However, the state of Florida requires two elements be met before affirming any slip and fall case:

  • The owner of the establishment had actual knowledge of the dangerous condition which led to the slip and fall or should have known using due care that this condition existed, and
  • The victim was not aware of the hazardous situation.

For all slip and fall accidents, you should contact your attorney as soon as possible. The more time between filing your claim and the incident, the more likely it is evidence gets lost and that witnesses’ memories fade.

What Should I Do After a Slip and Fall?

One of the most important things to do after an accident is contacting your attorney. They will likely take many of the following steps on your behalf:

  • Take pictures of the scene and conditions
  • Secure contact information of any witnesses
  • Get copies of relevant documentation like the accident report
