Slip and Fall
Helping seriously injured victims of slip and fall accidents across Florida, including Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Plantation, the Palm Beaches and the Florida KeysFlorida Slip and Fall Attorney
Fort Lauderdale slip and fall lawyer Joseph Lipsky understands that business owners have an obligation to keep their properties safe from unsafe conditions. Sometimes the business owners do not live up to their obligations by failing to clean up liquids or spills that they know of, or should be aware of. And as a result of this failure, someone slips and falls at that business or property.

Thanks to the efforts of businesses and insurance companies, Florida now has specific laws which protect property owners from liability for many slip and fall accidents. Florida Statute section 768.0755, provides that the owner or operator of property or business is legally responsible for another person’s injuries, if the injured person and their attorney can prove that the:
“business establishment had actual or constructive knowledge of the dangerous condition and should have taken action to remedy it.”
Miami slip and fall lawyer Joseph Lipsky knows how to present proof of the property owner’s knowledge about the dangerous condition can be shown by either direct or circumstantial evidence, such as by the dirty condition liquid, or the age of the object, which caused you to slip and fall. If you are able to prove that the business knew of the dangerous condition, injured victims may be entitled to compensation for unpaid medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, scarring, disfigurement, disability and inability to lead a normal life.
Some of the most common slip and fall accidents happen because of unseen or hidden conditions. A leaking supermarket refrigerator, condensation from an air conditioner or a dropped drink by another store customer are examples of the most seen hazards resulting in Miami slip and fall accidents, which may cause fractured hips, torn knee ligaments and ankle fractures.
Palm Beach slip and fall attorney Joseph Lipsky understands the difficulties in evaluating slip and fall injury accidents as the actions of both the injured person and the condition of the walking surface. Because often times a person may fall for a reason which may not be the fault of a business, it is imperative for an injured slip and fall accident victim to consult with Joseph Lipsky before speaking with a store’s insurance company or risk management person.
