Slip and Fall

Slip and Fall - where a person slips or trips and falls on another's property, home or business

Property owners in Florida are required by law to keep their premises reasonably safe for visitors. The premises liability lawyers in our Hernando, Marion, Citrus and Pasco County offices advocate on behalf clients who have suffered slip and fall injuries on another person's property, including injuries caused by:

  • Slippery or uneven sidewalks or pavement
  • Improperly designed stairs
  • Violation of Building and Construction Codes and Rules
  • Overly narrow stairways
  • Slippery and dangerous flooring
  • Inadequate or improper lighting
  • Water, oil, or other liquids let on a floor
  • Torn carpet
  • Cruise Ship falls

Florida property and business owners have a duty to use reasonable care in the maintenance of their property, and to warn visitors of hazards that exist and might cause a visitor to slip and fall. Property owners may be liable for a slip and fall or trip and fall accidents when they fail to maintain their property or warn people of latent dangers on their property. The slip and fall attorneys at the Law Offices of Whittel & Melton will seek compensation for all damages and monetary losses, including past and future medical care, lost wages, future lost wages and pain and suffering.

We Will Go to Trial For You

While we seek a fair settlement in every case we handle, we build every case with an eye toward trial so that when property owners, and the insurance companies that represent them, do not make a fair settlement offer, we can fight for you in court. In order to press our opponents, we aggressively build cases from the beginning.

Our representation does not cost our clients anything until they are first compensated for their injuries. If you have been injured by falling or tripping at a business or another person's property in Spring Hill, Brooksville, New Port Richey, Inverness, Ocala or in a surrounding Florida city, please contact us for a consultation.
