Slip-and-fall accidents are common grounds for personal injury cases, in which a property owner is made to answer for injuries caused as a result of unsafe conditions on the premises. The trip-and-fall attorneys at Charpentier Law Firm, P.A.—lawyers serving Melbourne, Titusville, Cocoa, and all of Central Florida—are adept at navigating the legal intricacies involved in these types of cases.
Victims of trip-and-fall accidents can sustain injuries that include bruising, lacerations, and broken bones. However, some victims sustain serious, lasting damage such as injuries to the brain or spinal cord, permanent disfigurement due to serious burns, and even death. Victims who suffer such damage must undergo a lifetime of medical care to treat their injuries and alleviate the pain associated with them. As a result, many are unable to keep up with medical bills and other financial commitments. Our experienced trip-and-fall lawyers help victims in Central Florida recoup the losses and expenses they have had to suffer as a result of the negligence of a property owner.
Common Causes of Trip-and-Fall Accidents
Trip-and-fall accidents can occur anywhere. It is the responsibility of property owners and managers to ensure that all areas of their property are free of hazards and that people who enter onto their premises are properly warned of potential threats to their safety. Some common hazards include:
- Uneven/unbalanced flooring
- Uneven carpet
- Slick floors or tiles
- Obstacles in the walkway
- Limited or lack of lighting in dark areas
