Our Clearwater Slip-And-Fall Lawyers Are Ready To Fight For You

Businesses open to the public are responsible for maintaining safe premises for their customers. Unfortunately, corners are sometimes cut, creating hazardous conditions that lead to customer injuries. Take, for instance, a bustling grocery store where understaffing or negligence results in spilled liquids left unattended. A customer, unsuspecting, slips on the substance, resulting in severe injuries. In such cases, the business may be held accountable for failing to ensure a safe environment.

Our personal injury attorneys at Thacker and Mulvihill, PLLC, understand the challenges of going against a business or other negligent party after a slip-and-fall accident. We can help you gather evidence and build a strong case.

Time Is Money (Especially After A Fall)

That’s why acting fast is crucial. By securing an attorney right away, you can lock down evidence before it disappears. Think witness statements, medical records and that all-important video showing you weren’t just breakdancing in the aisle. Remember, it’s your word against theirs, and you need all the backup you can get.

What Are Common Examples Of Slip-And-Fall Accidents?

These are some of the usual suspects in slippery situations:

  • Mystery spills: Did someone forget gravity applied to orange juice boxes? Businesses are responsible for cleaning up spills promptly, not letting them become hidden hazards.
  • Flooring gone rogue: Uneven tiles, loose carpeting, or surfaces slicker than an ice skater’s dream can all be trip-and-fall triggers. Watch out for floors that haven’t seen a mop in months!
  • Silent dangers: Missing warning signs about wet floors, construction zones or uneven steps can turn an innocent stroll into a painful tumble. Don’t let silence equal danger!

These dangerous conditions can lead to disastrous injuries that have lasting consequences. Our experienced attorneys at Thacker and Mulvihill, PLLC, can help you fight for compensation after a fall at a business or other public space.

What Financial Compensation Can You Recover After A Florida Slip-And-Fall Accident?

If you’ve been a victim of a slip-and-fall, you might be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical bills: Bandages, surgeries, rehab – it all adds up. Get reimbursed for the medical care you need to get back on your feet.
  • Lost wages: Can’t work due to your injury? Don’t let your income take a nosedive.
  • Pain and suffering: Let’s be honest, a fall hurts! You deserve compensation for the physical and emotional toll.
  • Rehabilitation costs: Physical therapy, assistive devices and other recovery expenses shouldn’t burden you financially.

Compensation for your injuries means you can focus on getting better rather than trying to get back to work too early.

How To Prove Negligence After A Slip-And-Fall

Proving negligence can be tricky, but experienced attorneys know the legal ropes. They’ll help you establish the following:

  • The business owed you a duty of care: They were responsible for keeping the premises safe.
  • They breached that duty: Uneven floors, missing signs or ignored spills are breaches of trust (and safety!).
  • The breach caused your injury: The unsafe condition directly led to your unfortunate incident.
  • You suffered actual damages: Medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering are all compensable damages.
