Do I Have a Slip and Fall Case?

You have a slip and fall case if you can prove that you got hurt due to someone else’s negligent behavior. Many people think that a slip and fall case can be based only on intentional or very reckless conduct. That isn’t the case. In fact, the legal standard for most slip and fall cases is simple negligence. The negligence standard is just that the other party wasn’t as careful as a reasonable person should be. You only have to prove that it’s more likely than not that the other party’s negligent conduct resulted in your injuries.

What Are Examples of Slip and Fall Cases?

Here are some examples where you may have a valid slip and fall claim:

  • A gas station fails to clean up a spill after 45 minutes. You slip on the spill and sustain a broken arm.
  • There are too many people in a crowded nightclub. Even though it’s unsafe, the club continues to admit guests. You get pushed, and you fall. The injuries you have include a concussion that requires medical treatment.
  • While you’re entering a shop, you trip on a crack in the sidewalk. It was the shop owner’s responsibility to maintain the sidewalk, but they failed to notice the crack. You have significant injuries, and you’re unable to work for two months.
  • You go to workout at the gym. Another patron leaves their water bottle on the ground. Gym employees fail to notice. The water bottle sits on the ground for two hours. As a result, you trip on the water bottle and severely sprain your ankle.
  • You’re shopping in a large store. Employees leave products in the aisle instead of putting the products on the shelves. As you come around the corner, you don’t see the items on the floor. You slip, suffering serious injuries.
  • You’re shopping in a large store. The store employees put the displays too close together. During a busy period, the jostling of the crowds results in your falling into a store display. You have to go to the hospital, and you need surgery.

A slip and fall accident can occur from the same height, or you may fall from an elevated height. Slip and fall cases even happen when something falls from higher up and causes a chain reaction. Any kind of slip and fall can result in a legal claim if the responsible party fails to act with reasonable care and caution in a way that causes your injuries.

What Can I Win in a Slip and Fall Legal Case?

In a slip and fall case, you can recover your financial losses and an extra amount to account for your pain and suffering. The purpose of slip and fall compensation is to pay you a fair amount for damages, which can include:

  • Medical bills and hospital stays
  • Medication
  • Rehabilitation
  • Property damages
  • Lost wages
  • Lost long-term career potential
  • Pain and suffering

When you’re the victim of a slip and fall, you know that not all of your injuries are financial. You have severe physical pain, as well as mental injuries like PTSD, anxiety and flashbacks. There is also the fact that your life will never be the same. All of these things are the basis for compensation that you can claim in your case. It’s critical to identify all of the categories of losses that may apply. With our experienced Tampa slip and fall lawyers fighting for you, there’s a team of legal professionals ensuring that you fully value your claim. Our Tampa legal team identifies your damages and works to gather evidence to prove every element of your case.
