Sarasota / Bradenton Slip & Fall Accident Lawyer
Sure, accidents happen. People lose their balance or fail to watch where they are going. But it is a different story when an accident occurs due to a broken step, a hole in the flooring, or a slippery surface–all conditions that should have been resolved. When a property owner fails to repair a hazard, anyone who steps foot on that property is at risk. The premises liability attorneys at The Luhrsen Law Group want to hear your story if you or someone you love was hurt in a slip and fall accident. Please contact us now and we will come visit you at your home or hospital room for a free accident consultation.
Types of Slip and Fall Accidents
When a slip and fall accident occurs, it is usually due to a compromised ground surface. Chemical spills and water leaks left sitting can cause pedestrians to lose traction and hit the ground. Uneven floor tiles, breaks in concrete, loose gravel, and slanting floorboards or steps can cause people to slip and fall. Even a seemingly minor fall can result in broken bones and fractures, neck and back injuries, and even brain damage.
Determining Hazardous Conditions and Fault
With slip and fall accident claims, property owners may try to discount the victim’s story by saying that carelessness caused the fall. Even if the victim was partially at fault, the property owner may still be held financially responsible for medical expenses, lost income, and other types of compensation. After we agree to take your slip and fall case, Attorney Jeff Luhrsen or Attorney Julie Luhrsen will investigate the accident and work on building evidence. It is our goal to prove the hazard existed, and to show how the owner’s negligence directly led to serious injury. Remember that timing is crucial in slip and fall accident cases.
