PREMISES LIABILITY

Have you or a loved one suffered injuries in a slip/trip and fall accident? If so, you have the right to file a claim for compensation for your injuries, financial losses and pain and suffering.

Often times businesses such as bars, restaurants, supermarkets, and stores open to the public do not have proper policies and procedures in place to prevent injuries from occurring on business property. One of the most common types of injuries occurring at business establishments are slip and falls. Sometimes the owner or employees of the business are not aware of the hazardous wet floor and therefore have not remedied it. In Florida, a business can be held liable for a slip and fall is the business had actual or constructive notice. That means that the hazard was obvious or should have been obvious if the business owner and/or its employees exercised reasonable care to discover the hazard. At Conerly, Bowman & Dykes, we will aggressively investigate your slip and fall claim and develop theories of negligence for your case. We will obtain photos, policies and procedures, as well as surveillance videos to win your case!

Act Quickly to Protect Your Rights

Evidence concerning a slip and fall accident can begin to disappear soon after the fall. To preserve your right to obtain compensation, you should:

• Stay put until medical services have arrived. Ask someone to call emergency medical services for you.
• Notice your surrounding areas and what you believe caused you to fall.

o Pay attention to see if there was liquid on the floor. What color was the liquid? Were there shoe prints on the floor? Did the liquid have some sort of sent?
o Were there any signs notifying you of the hazard? Was it next to the hazard? Was the sign visible?
o Where did the liquid come from? Look around the area you fell, look to the roof in the event the liquid accumulated is a result of a leaky roof. Did you fall near a vending machine? ice machine? soda dispensing machine? freezer?
o Take photographs of the area surrounding your fall.

• Report the accident to the property manager and ask to file an incident report
• Get the names and numbers of witnesses
• If you have a camera or camera phone, take pictures of the scene, your shoes, witnesses/staff, your clothes and your injuries.
• Ask the manager on duty if there are surveillance videos capturing the area where you fell. If so, ask the manager to preserve the surveillance and also demand to see the video if you are able to stand up without hurting yourself.
