Fort Lauderdale Personal Injury Lawyers

Slip and Fall Accidents

When you enter a store, restaurant, or someone else’s home, being injured in an accident is likely the furthest thing from your mind. A property owner has a legal responsibility to ensure that premises are secure and safe for all visitors. Sadly, sometimes property owners and managers neglect this responsibility, and as a result, innocent victims are injured.

If you or a loved one has been injured on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries and other losses. To speak with a qualified Fort Lauderdale premises liability lawyer about your legal rights and options, contact the offices of Salpeter Gitkin, LLP, at 954-467-8622.

Slip and Fall Accidents and Premises Liability

There are a number of different accidents that can occur on dangerous premises, but slip and fall accidents are some of the most common. A slip and fall accident on residential or commercial property can occur due to:

  • Steep, slippery stairs or other surfaces
  • Inadequate stairwell railings
  • Hidden obstacles or debris in walkways or lawns
  • Inadequate lighting

The existence of one of these dangers, or the failure to warn visitors of known dangers, can result in serious, long-term injuries ranging from strains and broken bones to spinal cord and head injuries.
