Protect Yourself After a Slip and Fall in Miami

Have you sustained injuries from a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property in Miami? You might be entitled to compensation, but navigating Florida’s legal landscape can be confusing. Our Miami slip and fall attorneys can help you understand your rights and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Proving Negligence in Slip and Fall Cases:

It’s not enough to simply have experienced a slip and fall. You must demonstrate the property owner’s negligence caused your injuries. This involves proving three key elements:

  1. Duty of Care:

As an “invitee” on their property, businesses like stores, restaurants, and hotels owe you the highest duty of care. This means they must maintain a reasonably safe environment, free from dangerous conditions that could cause injury.

  1. Breach of Duty:

The owner breached their duty by failing to address a hazardous condition (like a spill) or failing to warn you about it. They knew or should have known about the danger through reasonable diligence.

  1. Causation and Damages:

Your slip and fall wouldn’t have happened without the breach of duty, and it directly caused your injuries and associated financial losses, including medical bills, lost wages, and even emotional distress.

Time is of the Essence:

Florida’s statute of limitations gives you two years from the accident date to file a lawsuit. Don’t delay – contact a premises liability lawyer at our office right away to preserve your rights.
