West Palm Beach Slip And Fall Lawyer David Glatthorn Stands Up For Clients
Florida slip and fall accidents cause injuries every day throughout The Sunshine State. With so many swimming pools and docks and waterways around the state, it's no wonder so many people sustain serious injuries.
But it's not just swimming pool accidents or boating accidents that result in slip and fall injuries. Hotel accidents, store accidents and parking lot accidents often involve people slipping and falling and getting hurt. People can suffer injuries ranging from muscle sprains or broken bones to more serious injuries such as spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injury. In addition to medical expenses, they may also lose income while they are unable to work because of the injury.
Slip and fall accidents often happen due to negligence. For example, if a dangerous condition existed on the property, and the property owner knew about it but failed to take action to address the problem, that is negligence on the property owner's part. Dangerous conditions include cracked or uneven pavement, poor lighting, a broken step on a stairwell or water spilled on the floor or ground.
