Understanding Premises Slip/Trip and Fall
Looking for a premises slip/trip and fall lawyer to explain your rights and potential opportunities to obtain a recovery for your medical bills and other expenses can be a frustrating experience. Many Florida attorneys, for instance, strive to represent as many new clients as possible to generate revenue. These firms settle numerous claims rapidly, without regard to their clients’ real needs, goals and well being.

Premises Slip/Trip and Fall Protections
Different guests and visitors are entitled to different protections under the law:
1. Invitee. If you were invited onto a property and then suffered an injury, such as a slip and fall, you will be classified as an invitee.
2. Licensee. If you were a licensed individual, such as a mailman or delivery person, and you got hurt on someone’s property, you will be classified as a licensee.
3. Trespasser. If you were not allowed on the property, you will be classified as a trespasser.
Different visitor classes have different rights under the law. But even trespassers can collect damages for certain illnesses or injuries they acquire, depending on the circumstances.
Common causes of premise slip/trip and fall cases include: swimming pool drownings, accidents at construction sites, trip and falls, animal attacks, and injuries from open pits, rusty nails, or other nuisances or on-property hazards.
Preparation is key when it comes to getting results. The defendant and/or the defendant’s insurance company may put up stiff resistance, even if you have a legitimate claim and a compelling argument linking negligence, carelessness, or failure to respond to your injury.

Start Building Your Case
Retaining legal h2 rapidly after an accident can make a tremendous difference to your ability to obtain a recovery. Evidence from a slip and fall, for instance, loses its value over time. An eyewitness account recorded on the day of an accident will be more highly valued than an eyewitness account recollected weeks or months later. Likewise, a picture of the conditions of the slip and fall (taken, for instance, with a cell phone camera) can be a devastating piece of evidence – but only if you snap the photo shortly after an injury.
