Slip and Fall Attorney Melbourne Florida
If you or a loved one has been injured in a slip-and-fall accident, seek legal help immediately. Property owners are accountable to ensure adequate safety measures are in place to prevent accidents. Several states have laws that require landowners to maintain their property so that it does not present an unreasonable risk of harm to those that visit the property. They can be held liable for your injuries and may be required to pay you compensation.
A nasty fall caused by a slippery floor, foreign object, or an obstruction on the pavement can cause serious injuries. As the victim of an accident caused by the negligence of a property owner, you have the right to claim compensation for your financial losses and suffering.
If you have been injured due to a property owner or a business establishment failing to provide a safe environment, then you may have a right to bring a claim for various damages incurred due to your injury.
Determining fault can be difficult without the proper legal team.
Our Melbourne Fl slip and fall lawyers investigate accident scenes to determine property owner negligence and prove liability. We gather all the evidence needed to understand factors leading to slip-and-fall accidents at both commercial and residential properties, including:
- Wet and slippery walkways
- Inadequate lighting
- Wet floors with no warning signs
- Property defects
- Inadequate signage
- Faulty equipment causing puddles on floor
- Spills by employees and/or patrons
- Improper surfaces
If you slipped and fell or tripped and fell on dangerous property — or if inadequate security lighting or a broken stairway rail caused you serious injury, and the lost income and medical that come with it — our experienced Melbourne/Palm Bay lawyers can help.
We meet with witnesses, survey scenes, gather photos and video, explore applicable building codes and document the property’s condition. The slip-and-fall injury attorneys at our Brevard County office also seek to obtain surveillance videos and maintenance records to understand if the property was kept up with proper repairs.
When beneficial, we review contract agreements to determine if a third party, such as a vendor or contractor, is responsible for the slip-and-fall accident. We are committed to holding all at-fault parties accountable.
