Slip, Trip and Falls

Our Orange Park Injury Attorneys Help Victims Of Slips Trips And Falls Get The Compensation They Deserve

Slip and fall accidents are caused when a person trips (or slips) on a sidewalk, floor, or other surface. The owner of a building, house, parking lot, or any other property is often responsible for such injuries. Ansbacher Law has the professional expertise and experience in this specific area of Florida law to provide the highest quality representation. Ansbacher Law’s expertise in construction law and real estate law differentiates us from other personal injury firms. Our real estate law experience helps us to quickly and accurately identify the legal owners so they can be held responsible. Our construction law expertise helps us to recognize violations of Florida building codes and construction standards that are often the cause of such accidents and injuries.

If you were injured in a slip and fall accident in Jacksonville, Orange Park, St. Augustine or surrounding areas, contact Ansbacher Law for your free consultation. You will not be charged for additional services following your free consultation unless you are awarded money for your accident.

Who Is At Fault?

If you are injured on someone else’s property, the property owner or business may be responsible to pay for your medical treatment, lost income, disabilities, and pain and suffering. Florida law is a “comparative fault” state. This means that if the person who falls is partially at fault for the fall,¬†along with the property owner or business owner, then the jury or judge will decide the percentage of fault of each party and the injured party can collect. These percentages will be decided based upon the percentage of fault attributed to the property owner, business owner, or both.

Some examples of conditions where the property owner or business owner may be responsible for injuries from a fall are:

  • Unevenly paved walkways
  • Poor lighting
  • Unmarked hazards
  • Inadequate security
  • Wet surfaces
  • Broken handrails
  • Defective stairs
  • Spills that are not timely cleaned up
  • Curbs, stairs, walks or railings that do comply with building codes
