A slip and fall accident in Ft Lauderdale may sound minor, but it can have serious consequences. A fall onto a hard surface or from a great height can cause brain damage, paralysis or even death. Even a less serious slip and fall accident in Ft Lauderdale can leave its victim injured and unable to work for weeks or months. When this kind of injury takes place on someone else’s property, due to that person’s carelessness, victims have the right to hold them legally responsible with the help of a personal injury attorney.
Premises liability is the legal term describing cases holding property owners responsible for accidents created by dangerous conditions on their properties. For example, if a grocery store in Ft Lauderdale fails to clean up a spilled bottle of olive oil and a customer slips and falls, that customer could file a lawsuit with help of a premises liability attorney. This lawsuit would hold the grocery company legally liable for the results of failing to address the dangerous condition on its property, and responsible for the customer’s injuries as well as medical bills and other costs.
In a situation like this, the property owner would have had reasonable amount of time to handle the spill before they can be held liable, and of course, visitors must still take reasonable care about where they step. But by making property owners responsible for injuries resulting from an accident, the legal system gives them a reason to quickly clean up or warn about hazards.
