Your Path to Healing from a Slip & Fall Starts Here.

It can be embarrassing to fall when you’re at someone’s house or shopping in a store, but it can be downright frustrating when that fall leaves you injured, especially if it’s not your fault. Many times, when people are injured in a slip and fall accident, it is no fault of their own.

Common Slip & Fall Injuries.

You might have gone to the grocery store and slipped in a puddle of something on the floor. You could have been in someone’s backyard and fell on their patio stairs. And while you may not have a case if you trip over your own mess in your house, you might have a claim if you trip over the broken sidewalk on your street. The most common slip and fall injuries include:

  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Contusions and concussions
  • Slipped discs
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Knee injuries
  • Neck or back injuries

How Slip & Fall Compensation Works.

Florida pure comparative negligence law states that you can recover compensation even if you are deemed to be 99% at fault for the accident. The way pure comparative negligence works is, you are found to be at fault from a percentage of 0 to 100. If you are found to be 100% at fault for the accident, you will be barred from compensation. If you are found to be 0-99% at fault, you can collect an award, but it will be reduced by your percentage of fault. For example, if you are found to be 30% at fault for your slip and fall, and you have been awarded $10,000 for your injuries, then you will be able to collect $7,000 of that award. We make it our job to prevent the insurance company from putting any fault on you for the slip and fall.
