Types of Injuries from Slip and Fall Accidents in Tallahassee

Slip and fall accidents often cause serious injuries that require months of missed work and rehabilitation. A Tallahassee slip and fall accident lawyer can help you recover compensation to cope with your situation. The most common types of slip and fall injuries include:

  • Neck, back or spine injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Knee injuries
  • Ankle or wrist injuries

Identifying Causes of Slip and Fall Incidents

Most slip and fall accidents could be avoided if property owners took better care of their facilities. Your Tallahassee slip and fall lawyers will help you hold the property owner accountable for his or her negligence. The most common types of slip and fall hazards include:

  • Water on the floor
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Failure to have handrails or safe stairs
  • Poor lighting

Immediate Steps After a Slip and Fall Accident

You should seek medical attention after a slip and fall accident that results in an injury. Medical treatment can help establish a record of your injuries and damages. If you can, it can help to take photos of the area where your accident occurred immediately after the fall. In addition, you may be able to write down what happened before, during, and right after the fall.

Eligibility for Filing a Slip and Fall Lawsuit in Florida

Whether you can file a slip and fall lawsuit depends on the circumstances. Slip and fall are personal injury lawsuits, meaning your case must meet certain criteria to succeed.

You must be able to demonstrate that the party responsible for your slip and fall injuries owed you a duty of care, violated that duty, and caused you to suffer damages. In a slip and fall case, defendants can be businesses, private property owners, maintenance companies, security companies, and even government agencies.

Property owners and these other entities owe people varying degrees of care in Florida. The degree of care owed depends on whether the plaintiff was a guest, invitee, or trespasser. It also matters whether the plaintiff was a child or an adult. You must also be within the statute of limitations to file a slip and fall lawsuit against the other party.

Compensation for Slip and Fall Injury Victims

There are two main compensatory damages in personal injury lawsuits, including slip and fall lawsuits. You may be able to recover compensation for economic damages, such as your medical bills, lost income, transportation expenses, and home modifications. Noneconomic damages are less tangible and may cover pain and suffering.

Many personal injury attorneys work with medical experts and other professionals to quantify damages for their clients. You should contact our Florida slip and fall lawyer if you have any questions about damages and your case. 

Understanding Slip and Fall Settlement Amounts

Most personal injury cases settle before going to trial. This is because many businesses, who may be defendants in a slip and fall case, do not want bad publicity. Injury trials are a public matter. Many businesses also want to avoid the costs of an expensive, time-consuming trial.

The defendant’s insurer may be willing to settle your case. However, the settlement you receive depends on your damages. If you suffered a severe injury, such as a spinal cord injury and complete paralysis, chances are your settlement will be much larger. This would be because you likely suffered more in damages than you would have with a less serious injury.

Some cases do not settle. If the defendant’s insurer refuses to pay a fair settlement, and you have a strong case, taking your case to trial may be necessary. You should choose a personal injury attorney with trial experience to handle your case.

Timeline for Slip and Fall Settlements

It depends. Every case is different. How long your case takes to settle, if it settles, depends on the circumstances. The amount and type of evidence matters, as does the other party’s willingness to negotiate a fair settlement. Some cases may settle in months, while others take years.
