No Recovery, You Owe Us Nothing
People have a reasonable expectation of safety when they visit a business or residence, because facility owners have a responsibility to maintain their property in a safe condition. However, sometimes accidents happen and a person can be injured or killed due to unforeseeable circumstances.
Maybe you or someone you love stumbles in a warehouse, trips in vacant lot, or slips and falls at a marina, where someone else’s negligence in observing safety standards has put you at risk. If the accident was indeed related to the property owner’s negligence in maintaining the property in a safe manner, you may have grounds to file a premises liability lawsuit.

We can help you determine whether you have a viable claim, and if you do, we are ready to pursue justice aggressively on your behalf.

While property owners are responsible for keeping their facilities free of hazards, some types of hazards are inevitable. For example, weather can create significant risks due to high water, ice, fallen tree branches, and acts of Mother Nature. A property owner has a responsibility to remove these hazards or, at a minimum, to put up a clear warning for guests to stay away from the danger and avoid a slip and fall accident.
No matter how obvious fault may appear to those untrained in the law, the issues of premises liability are complicated and sometimes overlapping. Government agencies have established standards, laws, and ordinances to define levels of safety that property owners must meet. Determining which of these standards, laws, or ordinances applies to a particular case is the job of attorneys experienced in sorting them out and identifying legal responsibility. Our Florida slip and fall lawyers have more than 40 years’ experience handling these kinds of cases and will help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
Several factors can contribute to a slip and fall accident in Florida. Below are the five most common reasons behind slips and trips:
