Say, for instance, you slipped in a parking lot and seriously injured yourself. You may be eligible for compensation, but there are a lot of grey areas when it comes to premises liability law. You may be wondering, “What can affect my Florida slip and fall claim?” Was there a wet floor sign nearby? Do you have pre-existing conditions? An experienced attorney will be able to sort out the complexities of your case. Contact the personal injury trial attorneys at Salter, Healy, Rivera today to arrange a free consultation and case review.
Wet Floor Signs
If there was a wet floor sign near the area where you fell and injured yourself, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you cannot receive compensation. If the wet floor sign was in a spot that was not easily seen, or if it was in an area removed from the spot that you fell, the premises would be considered responsible for your injuries. Of course, it takes a skilled and experienced attorney to prove this, and you will have to bring your claim forward as soon as possible. Act fast because we will then be able to examine surveillance videos and any other evidence proving your claim before it goes away.
Sometimes a person is injured in a slip and fall accident and they sustain numerous injuries, some of which were to body parts that had been injured at previous times in their lives.

However, in Florida, injured victims can file a claim for slip and fall injuries that aggravated a previous injury.
