Boca Raton Slip & Fall Attorneys
Holding Negligent Property Owners Accountable
Accidents like slips and falls can happen anywhere, from your workplace to a random commercial property. When one incurs injuries from slips and falls, the usual next step is to file a personal injury case and seek reasonable compensation. However, fault and liability must first be established in the court.
If you have fallen on a property that belongs to another and you think that the unsound structure or environment might have been the cause of your injury, then you may be able to file a personal injury claim against the property owner with the help of our Boca Raton slip and fall attorneys at The Berman Law Group.

Determining Liability in Slip-&-Fall Cases
Determining who is at fault in a slip and fall is decided in the court of law. There are many factors that might affect liability in slip-and-fall accidents. It can be the clumsiness and carelessness of the plaintiff or the unsafe conditions on the property.
In most cases, the owner of the property can be held liable if a dangerous condition on his or her property caused an accident. Some examples of these conditions are improperly waxed floors, weak and old floorboards, inadequate lighting, and poor maintenance of the property.
It must be proven that the property owner:
- Made or created the dangerous condition
- Knew the dangerous condition existed and failed to correct it
- Should have known about the dangerous condition given the length of the problem’s existence but still did not correct it
What to Do after a Slip-&-Fall Accident
Opposing attorneys will not be afraid to accuse you of pretending to be gravely injured just for a smidge of compensation. In order to protect yourself against such accusations, you need to be able to show that you are a credible and reliable plaintiff.
After the accident, make sure to seek medical attention immediately. Not only will this help you understand how to heal, but this also helps in the court of law. For the purposes of the court, it is a good idea to collect as much documentation of medical ailments as possible. You can take photos, ask for witnesses’ contact details, file an accident report, and save or take a photo of the item that caused your fall.
To make your case stronger, it is advisable that you file your personal injury case as early as possible. It would be difficult to win a case and gather evidence if you file the case months later, when your injury has been fully healed and the cause of the accident has already been fixed. In the State of Florida, a statute of limitations exists. This means that residents have a limited amount of time in which they can file a claim.
