Let Alan Sackrin put his 30 years of experience to work for you.

Generally speaking, slip and fall accidents occur because a business owner wasn’t paying attention when they should have been or because the busines owner didn’t have proper measures in place to prevent an accident. Property owners and business owners, including grocery stores, supermarkets, restaurants, gas stations, hotels, department stores and even condominiums, have a legal duty to provide a safe environment for anyone who comes onto their property.

Premises Liability Accidents in South Florida – Who is Responsible?

Premises liability laws are designed to hold Property owners, operators, and managers and business owner’s, whether they are individuals or business entities, accountable when serious injury occurs as a result of their negligence. These parties are responsible for ensuring that their property is free from hazardous conditions, and for making sure that the general public is aware of any dangerous conditions that may exist. A knowledgeable slip and fall attorney can locate the owners of any given property by checking the appropriate government records, including tax rolls and corporate filings.

Some owners and operators who bear responsibility for your slip and fall may not be as obvious. They may include service providers such as concessionaires, janitorial companies, franchisors and parent corporations. They may also include government entities. A slip and fall at a public school, for example, may impose liability on a local governmental body, whereas a slip and fall at a post office would implicate the federal government.  However, if a governmental agency is involved their liability may be limited by Florida law.  An experienced injury lawyer can advise you on these issues.
