Slip and fall accidents are frighteningly common in Jacksonville, Florida. It could happen at a public swimming pool, while walking to the beach, inside a restaurant, or outside your favorite store. For all their commonality, slip and fall accidents are unique to their own circumstances and legal issues.  They can also be incredibly serious. They can lead to:

 

      Sprains and strains

      Bruising and contusions

      Broken bones

      Traumatic brain injuries

      Cognitive impairment

      Long-term health complications

      Lost time at work

      Lost wages

      Serious injuries that require physical therapy

 

If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident in Jacksonville, FL, it’s important to have experienced representation. A seasoned personal injury attorney can provide you with answers to your questions, guidance throughout the entire process, and the representation you need in a court of law.

 

It’s about more than simply stating your case. In slip and fall accidents, you must prove fault – the fault of the premises owner (or someone acting on their behalf) who could have, or should have, prevented fall from occurring. This, however, can be incredibly challenging. You must prove that the defendant owned, leased, or occupied the property where the accident occurred and you must also prove that the accident occurred because of the negligence of that party.
