Who Can I Sue After A Cold Weather Slip And Fall Accident?
A: When considering if you have a premises liability lawsuit, remember that most people slip and fall over their own feet during some time in their life. Consider this fact before pursuing a lawsuit because a property owner will not always be responsible for everyone’s slip and fall injury. We all have a duty to watch where we are going; however, with that said, property owners have a duty of care to maintain their property.
If your South Florida slip and fall was caused by the negligence of the property owner, then your fall can be grounds for a slip and fall claim. For example, if a man fell on an icy sidewalk in an apartment building, he could bring a lawsuit against the apartment building’s owner, the management company, the apartment’s snow removal contractor and sometimes the city, depending where the injury occurred.
Remember, apartment complexes have a duty of care to maintain the property so that their residents and their guests are free from danger when walking on the property.
