Why Hire An Attorney?
According to the Florida Department of Health, unintentional falls are the leading cause of injury death among Florida residents ages 65 years and older and the fourth leading cause of injury death overall. In addition, falls are the leading cause of non-fatal injury-related hospital admission in Florida. In Redemption Law, we know what it takes to maximize your compensation if you have been the victim of a slip and fall accident. Our team of legal professionals can help you get the most out of your injuries, so you don’t have to be left alone paying those costly medical expenses. If the at-fault party’s insurer offers to settle, we will make sure you receive a figure that is worthy of the damages you incurred. We will help you determine who should be held liable for your injuries so we can take action to retrieve the compensation you need to recover.
Know Your Rights
Pursuant to Florida Statute § 768.0755, the victim of a slip and fall accident must prove that the property or business owner not only acted unreasonably in the upkeep of his or her property but also that he or she had actual or constructive knowledge that there was a dangerous condition that could pose a safety concern. Actual knowledge requires that the business or property owner knew of the hazardous condition. Constructive knowledge imputes knowledge upon a business or property owner and can be proven using inference. For example, if a business owner knew that liquid frequently gathered around a soda machine, the business owner may be deemed to have constructive knowledge of the spill.
Money Damages You May Be Awarded
If you have been the victim of a slip and fall, you may be entitled to both economic damages and non-economic damages.
Economic damages refer to your current out-of-pocket costs, as well as reasonably calculable future costs. Some examples of economic damages include medical expenses, lost wages, and loss of earning capacity.
Non-economic damages are funds awarded to victims to compensate for the intangible negative impact of their injuries. Some examples of non-economic damages include pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.
When Must You File Your Claim?
Under Florida Statutes section 95.11(3)(a), anyone who is injured in a slip and fall must get their lawsuit filed against the property owner within four years of the incident.
