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, Bassett & Rivera today to arrange a free consultation and case review.
What Can Affect My Florida Slip and Fall Claim? | 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.
What Can Affect My Florida Slip and Fall Claim? | Pre-Existing Conditions
We met with a client who had been injured in a slip and fall accident and the client sustained numerous injuries, some of which were to body parts that had been injured at previous times in their lives. That client was concerned that she may not be able to make a claim for certain injuries sustained in the slip and fall because there were preexisting conditions. Florida law allows people who have been injured as a result of someone’s negligence in a slip and fall accident to make a claim for the aggravation or worsening of a preexisting condition. Our firm has extensive experience handling slip and fall cases and obtaining excellent results for our clients who have been injured, even when they have preexisting conditions.
