When you are at the store, mall, or a friend’s house, you expect to be safe and have a pleasant time. If you are on the premises legally and at a reasonable time, the owner, manager, or another relevant party (such as an employee of a company), you presume they took reasonable steps to limit your chances of being injured as a result of a hazard on the property.
If they were negligent and you were injured in a Boca Raton slip and fall accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills and other losses.
Since you have to prove that the property owner or other such party was unreasonably negligent and that their negligence caused your accident, proving you deserve to be compensated can be challenging. If you do not have representation or legal experience, it may be incredibly helpful to hire an attorney.
To learn more about your options, consult with a Boca Raton slip and fall attorney at Elstein Legal. After reviewing your case, a personal injury lawyer will let you know whether you have a right to seek compensation, and provide the aggressive representation you deserve.
Boca Raton Slip and Fall Cases: Important Information
Falling accidents can cause serious injury. The CDC reports that such accidents send nearly one million American adults to the hospital annually. This is why premises liability laws are so important. They require that property owners reasonably strive to prevent accidents caused by hazards on their properties.
“Reasonably” is the keyword. For instance, if you were at the supermarket and an item fell from its shelf in front of you, and you tripped over it immediately after, no one would have time to remove the item from the floor. If the fallen item could have been removed hours ago, but was neglected and resulted in an accident, they may be negligent.
This highlights one of the main reasons you should strongly consider reviewing your case at a slip-and-fall law firm. A qualified Boca Raton slip and fall lawyer will determine whether you have grounds to file a claim or lawsuit. They may also gather evidence, interview witnesses, and take various other critical steps to show that your Boca Raton slip and fall accident was the result of negligence.
Boca Raton Slip and Fall Examples
Instances, when you might be able to seek compensation after a Boca Raton slip and fall, include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Tripping over an obstruction in the parking lot of a business that was nearly impossible to see at night due to poor lighting;
