Do I Have a Slip and Fall Case?

A slip and fall is a type of personal injury case wherein a negligent party created an unsafe condition that led to the injury of another person. The at-fault party created a situation that was dangerous and caused a person to fall and sustain an injury that would not have happened if conditions were safe.

Injuries that may be caused by a slip and fall include:

  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Muscle strains and sprains
  • Dislocated joints
  • Cuts, bruises, swelling, and abrasions
  • Head injuries such as concussions and traumatic brain injuries
  • Back and spinal injuries such as herniated discs and spinal fractures
  • Internal injuries and internal bleeding
  • Facial and oral injuries
  • Psychological injuries due to pain, suffering, and trauma

An injured party can file a slip and fall case to recover financial compensation to cover the damage caused by the accident. Damages sustained during a personal injury incident may include special compensation damages to cover medical bills and cost of care and general compensatory damages to cover pain, suffering, and emotional trauma.

To win a slip and fall personal injury case, the injured party must prove another party’s negligence led to the injury and that the party should have recognized or prevented the dangerous situation. Negligence in a slip and fall case may include wet or slippery floors, inadequate lighting, uneven flooring, poorly maintained pathways, icy walkwalks, or obstacles and debris in walking paths.

What Can You Recover in a Slip and Fall Case?

The impact of a slip and fall can be expensive. Injured parties may not immediately realize how much they will need to spend to get back on their feet or how much they lost as a result of their injury. We work closely with our clients to ensure that they are fully compensated for the damages they incur.

The compensation may cover:

  • Immediate medical costs
  • Long-term physical therapy and pain management
  • Lost wages due to missed work because of the injury
  • Therapy and PTSD treatment from the accident
  • Damage to your lifestyle because of the injury
  • Additional pain and suffering that it caused

In many slip and fall cases, the at-fault party or their insurance company may try to pay out as little money as possible to resolve the situation. We work closely with our clients to understand the entire financial cost of the injury and fight for you to get everything that is owed to you.

The offices of TJ Grimaldi, located in Tampa, Florida, have recovered millions for clients in personal injury cases. Through our experience, we know what is a fair settlement amount and how to use the best strategies to ensure that you receive everything that is due to you after a slip and fall.

How to Win a Slip and Fall Lawsuit

Many individuals fail to receive full compensation after a slip and fall because they don’t know the full protections of Florida law when it comes to personal injury. The law aims to protect individuals and includes provisions to ensure that you are made whole if injured in an accident that was caused by a negligent party. Don’t miss out on the benefits that may be awarded to you.

You can win a slip and fall case if:

  • The accident was caused by the negligence of another party.
  • You were not at fault for the accident.
  • The accident led to injury and damages (such as medical bills, lost income, emotional trauma, etc.)
  • You have materials and documentation that illustrate your injury and damages (such as photos of the injury, medical bills, incident reports, photos of the negligence that caused the accident, etc.)
  • The accident occurred less than two years ago.

Don’t guess if you have met the criteria for a personal injury case. Instead, talk to an experienced slip and fall attorney who knows what it takes to bring your case to court and win. Consultations are free with TJ Grimaldi. If you aren’t sure if you have a case worth fighting for, call today 813-226-1023 or schedule your consultation.

Is It Too Late to File a Slip and Fall Lawsuit?

If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Your health and wellness are top priority. For many people injured in accidents, the attention put into healing can distract from their urgency to talk to an attorney. While it is best to talk to an attorney right away, you are not out of luck if you don’t file a lawsuit right away.

Under Florida’s statute of limitations, you have up to two years from the date of your injury to file a personal injury lawsuit.

But the sooner you file, the better. Your memory will be more precise, and you will have better access to records that can show your injury and the negligence that caused the accident. But even if it has been a few weeks or years since the accident, you can still recover damages. This timeline is especially important if injuries present themselves in the years after an accident. Make sure you know what you are entitled to and if you have a case by talking to an experienced attorney.

What’s the Cost of a Slip and Fall Attorney?

A slip and fall incident is a type of personal injury lawsuit. As with most personal injury cases, the injured parties rarely pay out-of-pocket costs during the litigation period. There is no cost to work with TJ Grimaldi on a personal injury case. We only collect when you do. There are no attorney fees unless we win your case.
