Slip and Fall Spinal Cord Injury
A spinal cord injury that results from a slip and fall accident can be among the most difficult to recover from. Thousands of these injuries occur every year and sometimes they happen on a property that was not kept in a safe condition. The person responsible for maintaining that property, whether the landlord, the owner, or tenant, is liable if someone is injured due to their negligent maintenance.

If you are seriously injured while on someone’s property, do not hesitate to begin collecting evidence and call an experienced Florida premises liability law firm as soon as possible.

A Florida premises liability case will help you recover the costs of your recovery which can be sizable when a spinal cord injury is involved. In some cases, a victim will never fully recover. Pain and suffering is involved along with hefty medical bills, the cost of rehabilitation, ongoing medical care and in some cases a permanent disability. All of these costs should be compensated if the slip and fall accident was not your fault and due to someone else’s negligence.
To prove negligence we will need to show that the property was defective or dangerous in some way; that the person responsible for the property knew or should have known about the condition of the property or the hazard; that enough time had passed that the owner could have reasonably cleaned up the mess/hazard; that they failed to do so and additionally did not provide a warning to visitors; and that it was that unsafe situation that led to your injury.
