Dyson & Levy Help You Understand Slips, Trips and Falls Statistics

However, the attorneys at Dyson & Levy have had great success pursuing slip, trip, and fall cases on behalf of clients for many years.

Slip and Fall Negligence Cases
Why do slip and fall accidents occur? While it is true that some of these accidents occur because a victim was not paying attention, other slip, trip, and fall accidents occur because of unforeseen hazards. Property owners in Florida have a responsibility to make sure their premises are reasonably free from hazardous conditions that could cause harm to visitors. It will be important to establish what hazard was present and that the property owner should have prevented it, known it was there, and/or taken reasonable measures to repair it or warn visitors of its presence.
Some examples of hazardous conditions may include:
- Foreign substances or objects in walkways
- Standing water or spills
- Uneven flooring or sidewalks
- Poor lighting
- Defective or missing stairs
- Missing railings
- Violations of applicable building codes
Often times, the maintenance or cleaning procedures of a company or business are flawed or even non-existent, leading to these dangerous conditions. Our Delray Beach slip and fall lawyers know how to investigate and expose these flaws, resulting in favorable outcomes for our clients.
