Slip and Fall Accidents in West Palm Beach, Florida
Slip and falls can be caused by a number of factors. The common thread running through all of them is that someone other than the injured party is usually involved. In other words, even if you believe your fall was the result of your own carelessness and nothing more, an investigation can show otherwise. At the Law Offices of Wolf & Pravato, our job is to identify the other parties who caused or contributed to your injury and hold them liable.
Slip and fall injuries often occur thanks to:
- Wet floors
- Cracks in the flooring or pavement
- Uneven flooring or pavement
- Unmarked floor obstacles
- Loose or missing stairs
- Loose or missing handrails
- Low lighting
Regardless of how your slip and fall accident occurred, the Law Offices of Wolf & Pravato will find the responsible party or parties, gather evidence against them, and hold them accountable. No one will fight harder for the compensation you deserve from your slip and fall injury. To learn more about us, and to set up a free case evaluation with a member of our team, call (954) 633-8270.
Holding the Responsible Party or Parties Accountable
The most likely responsible parties for your slip and fall injury are the owner and manager of the property where you got hurt. Depending on your injury incurred, however, there may be others who are also liable. Our investigation will give us the answer, and we will aggressively pursue compensation from anyone whose actions or inaction contributed to your injury in any way.
To hold a property owner or manager responsible for injuries suffered in a slip and fall accident, we must show evidence of the following:
The Property Had a Dangerous or Defective Condition
First, your slip and fall accident lawyer in West Palm Beach must demonstrate that a dangerous or defective condition existed on the property. It might be an item from the list featured above, or it could be something else. We will scour the premises, talk to witnesses, review surveillance footage, and conduct other investigations to make it clear that such a condition was present.
The Owner or Manager Knew About the Condition
We then must show that the property owner or manager knew the condition existed before your injury occurred.
You Were Injured Because of the Condition
Your West Palm Beach slip and fall accident attorney will tie your case together by drawing a clear cause-and-effect relationship between the dangerous condition—and, by extension, the property owner or manager’s failure to protect you from it—and your injury. We will establish this nexus with medical records, expert witness testimony, and any additional evidence we need.
The Value of Your West Palm Beach Slip and Fall Injury Claim
Our personal injury lawyer in West Palm Beach investigate into your slip and fall injury also seeks to determine the value of your claim. In Florida, you can recover both economic and non economic losses from the responsible party or parties, and the state does not place a cap on either type of damage. That means we can sue for things that do not include actual monetary loss, such as emotional anguish and loss of enjoyment of life.
We can help you collect a settlement or award that includes compensation for the following and more:
- Current and future medical bills
- Lost income
- Reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering and inconvenience
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Emotional anguish
The Statute of Limitations
Florida has a four-year statute of limitations on filing a slip and fall injury lawsuit, but the timeline for your case might be shorter or longer depending on a number of unique factors. That is why it is important to speak with a Florida slip and fall accident lawyer as soon as possible after suffering an injury. We can let you know of all deadlines that apply to your claim, and if necessary we can take quick legal action to keep one of them from expiring.
