Premises Liability / Slip and Fall

The Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorneys at Lyons, Snyder & Collin handle all types of slip and fall accidents. Slip and fall accidents (sometimes known as trip and fall accidents) fall under an area of law called premises liability.

It can happen to anyone.

Generally, slip and falls refer to accidents which occur due to the negligent maintenance or unsafe/dangerous condition on property owned by someone other than the accident victim.  A slip and fall can result in serious injuries, including  fractured bones (such as a fractured wrist or shoulder), torn ligaments, and head injuries. Some of these injuries may cause you to miss a few days of work – Others may result in a life-altering disability. Fort Lauderdale accident attorneys Marc P. Lyons and Philip M. Snyder assist clients through all aspects of a premises liability / slip and fall claim, including communication with your medical provider, investigating potential insurance coverage, negotiations with the insurance company or responsible party, and filing a lawsuit, if necessary.

Accidents occur anywhere and everywhere.

A slip and fall accident can happen anywhere: in a retail store (such as Publix, Costco or Walmart); at a friend’s house; department store (such as Macy’s); in a parking lot (such as Home Depot or Office Depot); or on a public sidewalk. Owners and operators of public places such as restaurants, supermarkets, showrooms and retail stores have a specific responsibility/duty to maintain a safe place for the public. This is a legal responsibility that serves to your benefit if you slip and fall in their property.

Our Fort Lauderdale personal injury practice includes, slip and fall accidents involving:

  • Hotels/Motels
  • Malls
  • Cruise ships
  • Restaurants, bars and nightclubs
  • Retail stores and other businesses open to the public
  • Supermarkets

Of course, if we are unsuccessful, you do not pay anything.
