West Palm Beach Slip and Fall Lawyer

West Palm Beach Slip and Fall Lawyers Handling Accidents in Florida

West Palm Beach Slip and Fall Lawyer

On an average day, most Florida residents will travel into many different spaces and over varied surfaces. After leaving the house one may walk across a public sidewalk to the car, from a parking lot to a local Starbucks, next to a construction site, into the work office, through the grocery store, inside the bank, and a myriad of other places. These daily travels are so commonplace that most never give it a thought. But, in all of these areas, the individual trust those in charge of maintaining the sidewalks, tile, floor, stairs, pavements, and other surfaces. When these locations are not kept up to reasonable standards, then a slip, trip, and fall can arise–often with very serious consequences.

The Personal Injury Lawyers at Fetterman & Associates, PA work with families in West Palm Beach, and many other communities in the aftermath of a slip and fall that causes injury.

The law surrounding these types of cases is quite complex, and it often takes aggressive advocacy to ensure that those harmed received compensation for their losses.

If you or a loved one is in this situation, call slip and fall attorney in West Palm Beach at 561-845-2510 or send us an online message to see if we can help today.


Understanding Florida Slip & Fall Cases

A slip and fall may seem like an innocent accident without serious consequences, but in reality, many residents are seriously injured and rendered permanently disabled as a result of these incidents.

The potential for falls is ever-present, with some of the most common causes include:

  • Muddy walkways, stairs, and floors
  • Spilled liquids on tiles or hardwood
  • Loose floorboards
  • Broken stairs
  • Loose carpet or rough flooring
  • Hidden holes or unexpected floor drops
  • Uneven steps or steep inclines

Any fall can result in serious harm, including a brain injury, spinal injury, broken bones, sprains, dislocations, muscle tears, cuts, bruises, and much more. The risk of long-term damage is far higher for those with unique vulnerabilities, like the elderly and young children.

Falling Accidents in Florida – Legal Accountability

In the aftermath of a fall that causes serious harm, residents often wonder about their legal options. In general, most slip and fall cases hinge on “premise liability” rules in the law.

Premise liability refers to instances where a third party–usually an owner or operator of a space–is held accountable for the harm caused to others while on the property.

In 2010, Florida state legislators amended the existing law on this subject. Under the current rules, Florida Statute §768.0755, an individual seeking to hold property owners accountable following this harm must meet very particular requirements.

Specifically, under the law, the injured party must usually collect evidence that proves the other party had a duty to maintain the property, had actual or constructive knowledge about the dangerous condition on the property which caused the accident, failed to maintain the property, and the failure caused the injury.

Meeting these requirements may vary depending on the site of the accidents, as rules are different for businesses, private homes, and public or governmental spaces.

Thank you for the best “first accident case” I’ve ever had… I was referred to Fetterman and Associates by a coworker from a previous job I had. Once my car was totaled out, I contacted them. Not only were they friendly and understanding - they took over the whole process which helped me. I was stressed and panicking about it all and thankfully, I didn’t have to worry as the process began. I had no idea what I was doing or going to do. I am glad I chose them because everything was a breeze for me. They are kind, respectful, responsive and great to work with!

The entire staff in the Fetterman office are available always to help. No matter what time of day I called or left a message I have always received a call back. I was made to feel like one of the family and treated with respect and dignity. The lawsuit was handled quickly, professionally, and with all bases covered. Whenever I had a question or needed help the staff was there to make sure that everything was done accurately. The positive attitude of the entire staff made me comfortable and assured me that all was done accurately.

Looking for a good team they are the way to go… I was referred from a family member to seek advice due to my accident. I was contacted back the same day I called over the weekend. I experienced great service from Fetterman and Associates and my lawyer did an awesome job with closing my case. I appreciate what they went beyond to help my case and was very professional. Thank you Mr Cavataro and Sylvia.
