Slip and fall cases involve injuries and/or deaths that take place on the property owned by an individual person or an entity such as a business or governmental agency. The owners of private and commercial properties where the public is invited have a legal duty to maintain the premises according to accepted safety standards. When the owner is negligent in keeping the property safe, injuries may occur, and the injured party has the option to take legal action against the property owner. If that is the case, you may need a Delray Beach Slip and Fall Lawyer. The personal injury team at Aronberg & Aronberg is ready to assist.

Slip and Falls and Premises Liability

The conditions on the premises include problems such as an unsafe building, sidewalk, stairs, sidewalk, inadequate security, animal attacks,  and a variety of other scenarios. The most common examples of premises liability cases are: slip and fall, being hit by a falling object, dog bite, fire, and assault.

Premises liability cases may involve injuries that occur at: Private residences, Retail stores, Shopping malls, Super markets, Schools, Parks, Restaurants, bars, nightclubs, Hotels and motels, Parking lots, parking garages and ramps, Stadiums, and Amusement parks like Disney World. A Delray Beach attorney can help someone determine who is liable for a slip and fall that occurred on their dangerous property.

Pursuing Compensation for Slip and Fall Injuries

In some premises liability cases, the cause of the injury is very clear. In other cases, the causation must be proved. If a settlement between the plaintiff and defendant is not reached and a trial must be held, it may be necessary to have expert witnesses in court – such as a safety engineer, architect, or property management expert – to testify regarding the cause of the injury.

In a successful premises liability case that proves another peron was negligent, an injured person may be compensated for their losses. These could include: medical bills, rehabilitation costs, funeral and burial costs, and, in cases of death, loss of companionship and support when there is a death, lost wages or earning capacity, and pain and suffering.
