Experienced Tampa Slip and Fall Attorneys
If You’ve Been Injured in A Fall, You May Be Entitled to Financial Compensation
Premises liability law is designed to protect you if you have been injured as the result of another person’s negligent failure to maintain safe conditions on his or her property. Premises liability law protects guests and “invitees” (which includes shoppers, patients, clients, and others visiting commercial premises), and in some cases it even protects trespassers. To find out if you may be entitled to compensation for a slip-and-fall accident, contact our Tampa slip and fall lawyers for a free consultation today.
Should I Hire Tampa Slip and Fall Lawyers for My Case?
In Florida, there is a wide range of repair and maintenance issues that can lead to slips, trips, and falls. Each case is as unique as the property on which it occurs. Securing compensation for a slip-and-fall accident requires proof that the property or business owner is to blame, and may well necessitate the need for experienced Tampa slip and fall attorneys. The following are all common causes of slip-and-fall accidents that may entitle victims to file a premises liability claim:
Tripping on torn carpeting
Falling due to a missing or loose railing
Tripping over an abrupt change in flooring surfaces
Falling due to unsafe conditions at a swimming pool
Slipping on moss or algae-covered steps
Falling over an obstacle due to poor lighting
Slipping on oil spill in a garage or parking lot
Stepping in an unprotected pothole
Falling down crumbling, loose, or poorly-maintained stairs
While every situation is unique, our Tampa slip and fall lawyers have been handling premises liability cases for decades. As a result, our premises liability legal team has most likely handled a case similar to yours. If we haven’t, we can use the experience we’ve gained investigating and pursuing countless slip-and-fall cases to help you. We want you to win the compensation that you deserve.

What Should I Do After a Slip, Fall, or Other Premises-Related Accident?
After a slip, fall, or other premises-related accident, there are several steps you should try to take right away to protect your legal rights. For example, you generally should:
1. Seek Prompt Medication Attention.
The most important step after any accident is to immediately seek medical attention. Your health is the most important concern, and you could have serious injuries that require prompt diagnosis and treatment.
2. Collect Evidence at the Scene of the Accident.
Provided that you are not too injured to do so, you should try to collect information at the scene of the accident that will aid in your claim for compensation. One of the easiest ways to do this is to take pictures with your phone. Take pictures of everything: The exact location where the accident occurred, the surrounding area, your injuries, any damage to your clothes or personal items, and anything else that you think might possibly be related to the cause of your injury.
If anyone saw what happened or rushed to help you, ask for their names and contact information. These individuals may be able to provide crucial testimony in support of your personal injury claim.
3. Avoid Common Mistakes.
Too often, we see cases in which accident victims have made simple, avoidable mistakes that limited their ability to seek just compensation. These include mistakes like failing to follow doctors’ orders, giving recorded statements to the insurance companies, and accepting settlement checks before they know the full extent of their physical, financial, and emotional harm. We do not want to see you make these mistakes, and during your free initial consultation we will help you understand what you need to do to protect your rights.
4. Speak with our Experienced Premises Liability Attorneys.
After seeking treatment for your injuries, it is strongly in your best interests to speak with a premises liability injury attorney as soon as possible. Our experienced premises liability lawyers will be able to quickly provide you with an initial assessment of your case, and then conduct a thorough investigation in order to determine whether you may be able to pursue a claim for financial compensation.
DO NOT WAIT! Florida law imposes stringent deadlines for pursuing compensation following a premises-related injury. In addition, the longer you wait to seek help, the more difficult it may become to recover the evidence needed to prove that the property or business owner’s negligence. In short, the sooner you call, the better your chance of pursuing a successful claim.
