As a Florida trip and fall accident lawyer, I wonder why more places do not put up signs telling customers to be careful? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, costs for treating falls is more than $19 billion annually, with a projected cost of at least $43 billion by 2020.

We have represented folks who have fallen in restaurants, supermarkets and parking lots for reasons ranging from wet or greasy floors, clutter and debris, to uneven surfaces, improper cleaning and lack of hazard identifications across the State of Florida.

We believe that many of these falls might have been prevented with the installation of a sign telling visitors just to be careful. More businesses should take the time to make sure their property is safe before someone gets hurt.
