Slip & Fall Accidents in Duval County

When you slip, trip, and fall on someone else’s property, you are at risk of being severely injured. Although there is a widespread misconception that slip and fall accidents are not that serious, the reality is many people suffer significant injuries and damages due to these types of accidents.
If you slipped and fell as a result of unsafe property conditions or poor property maintenance, you could be entitled to financial compensation for your resulting medical bills, lost wages, inconvenience, pain and suffering, and more. At the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A., we represent clients throughout Duval County who have suffered because of a building or landowner’s negligence. Our Jacksonville slip and fall lawyers have extensive experience navigating these types of claims, and we are ready to put our collective skills and resources on your side.

Who Is Liable for a Slip & Fall Accident?

Under Florida’s premises liability laws, building and landowners are legally responsible for ensuring their properties are well-maintained, free of hazards, and generally safe for expressly or implicitly invited guests, as well as uninvited visitors who are lawfully allowed to be on the premises. This is known as the duty of care, and when property owners fail to uphold it, they can be held accountable.

If you were injured in a slip, trip, and fall accident on someone else’s property, you may be able to prove the property owner is liable for your damages if you can demonstrate the following:

You will also need to prove that you sustained measurable damages, whether economic or non-economic, to bring a claim. “Damages” is a legal term referring to any losses you experienced as a result of the accident, such as medical expenses, lost income, lost quality of life, and pain and suffering.

What Is a “Dangerous Condition?”

Generally speaking, a “dangerous condition” is any condition that poses a foreseeable risk of injury or harm. In other words, if a reasonable person could anticipate that a certain property condition might lead to an accident or injure someone else, that condition is considered “dangerous.”

Examples of common dangerous conditions that lead to slip, trip, and fall accidents include:

These and other dangerous property conditions pose a reasonably foreseeable risk in that an ordinary person could understand the risk these conditions pose of a slip, trip, and fall accident. Therefore, property owners (or other responsible parties, such as store managers or landlords) have a duty to adequately address such conditions, whether by repairing them, removing them, or warning others of their presence.

the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A. Can Fight for You

After a slip and fall accident, you are likely to face an uphill battle in your physical and financial recovery. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may require extensive medical attention and ongoing care. You may be unable to work while you heal and, if your injuries were catastrophic, you may suffer a permanent disability that limits your ability to provide for yourself and your family. On top of all this, the insurance company will likely do everything it can to dispute, devalue, or deny your claim.
