Miami Slip and Fall Lawyers

DEDICATED TO HOLDING BUSINESSES ACCOUNTABLE FOR YOUR PAIN AND SUFFERING

We are Miami slip and fall lawyers dedicated to holding businesses accountable to keep their properties safe and clean. We help those injured when a business chooses profits over people by failing to maintain its property in a reasonably safe condition or warn of a dangerous condition that results in serious injury or death.

Our Miami slip and fall lawyers also represent those who slip and fall or trip and fall while at work. Florida’s Statute Section 440 is Florida’s workers compensation law and it provides very strict rules and regulates the rights of workers who are injured on the job. Generally, if one slips and falls at work, they are not allowed to sue their employer for negligence. This is called workers compensation immunity. There are some exceptions to the rule, depending upon the employer’s contract, such as if the employer intentionally harms the worker. There are other exceptions to Florida’s workers compensation immunity if the employee is injured at work due to the acts of someone other than the employer.

We have successfully represented injured people across the State of Florida who have slipped, tripped or fallen at businesses like: Walmart, K-Mart, Publix, Disney World, Whole Foods Store, Universal Studios, Bayside Marketplace, Citi Bank, South Miami Hospital, and Versailles Restaurant.

If you have tripped or fallen at a business, store, restaurant or amusement park and have been hurt, even if you were on the clock at the time of your injury; we are prepared to help you and urge you to obtain immediate medical care and consult with our office as soon as possible.

DETERMINING THE VALUE OF YOUR SLIP AND FALL CASE

When considering the severity of your injuries, Florida law focuses on three important factors: (1) your past and future medical treatments for injuries caused by the accident, (2) past and future loss of wages caused by the accident, and (3) your pain and suffering as a result of the accident. The first two factors above are more straightforward and merely require some simple calculation to determine a value. However, how does one measure the value of a person’s pain and suffering? This is the hardest factor to quantify, but often the most important to consider.

The extent of an injury that prevents you from doing a physical activity that was once a part of your daily life–whether it be walking, exercising, or performing physical tasks required of your job–is taken into consideration when determining pain and suffering. Has the injured client’s ability to earn a living been affected by the accident? How many working years did the injured parties have ahead of them? Will those persons no longer be able to find good work in their particular fields?  Damages in this scenario may include the difference between what the injured parties would have earned without the injury and what they will likely earn after the injury.
