Slip and fall accidents are a common occurrence in the United States, and Florida is no different. These accidents can happen both inside and outside homes, public areas and shopping centers, and these incidents can be caused by various factors, be it slippery or worn portions of a walking surface or a poorly maintained area of walking space with obstacles in the pathway.
However many people who are considered slip and fall victims and sustain injuries don’t always come forward to report a claim. They may be embarrassed about their accident or blame themselves for the accident happening in the first place. In Florida, with our high number of retired citizens, victims may even place the blame on aging instead of a potentially dangerous environment.
Despite these feelings, it is important for the injured party to be evaluated by a doctor, having all injuries related to the incident documented, and to contact a lawyer with experience in fighting for the rights of slip and fall accident victims.
