Many people who are injured in trip-and-fall accidents occurring on sidewalks or in stores, parking lots, swimming pools, construction sites or other settings don't understand the adversarial nature of our legal system until it's too late. You may assume that the property owner will automatically pay for damages such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. However, that is not the case.

At The Umansky Law Firm, our lawyers represent people who are injured in trip and fall and slip and fall accidents in Orlando and other communities in central Florida. Many of these slip or trip and falls happen at shopping plazas or apartments that are not properly or carefully maintained. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident occurring on someone else's property, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and answer your questions.

How Insurance Companies Treat Trip-and-Fall Cases

Under Florida law, property owners have a responsibility to people who come onto their property as a guest or customer. That duty is to protect you from dangerous conditions that could cause you to be injured. Examples of dangerous property conditions include a missing handrail on a ramp, uneven steps on a stairs, a pothole or crack in a sidewalk, and construction debris. If the property owners knew about the dangerous condition or should have known, they are responsible for your damages if you are injured.

Businesses and other property owners have general liability insurance (and homeowner's insurance in the case of an individual) to pay for the damages of people who are injured due to the owner's negligence. However, insurance companies will not pay that money willingly.

In any trip-and-fall case, it's important to contact an tripping accident lawyer as soon as possible. Evidence of the dangerous property conditions must be collected and preserved. Otherwise, the property owner could install a handrail, repair steps, fill the pothole or clean up construction debris, removing evidence you need to prove your case.
