Who Is Responsible And Pays For My Slip And Fall Injury?
If your fall was caused by poor maintenance, poor lighting, spilled liquid, or a design defect, you should not have to pay for your injury. You didn’t ask to be injured, so why should you have to be stuck with the bill in addition to the pain of your injury? There are many parties that may be liable for your Florida slip and fall injuries. These parties could include:
- Grocery stores
- Retail stores
- Restaurant owner
- Building owner
- Maintenance crews
- Property possessors
- And more
While neither you nor the liable party can take away your injuries, the liable party can at least pay for your emergency room visit. These costs may include x-rays, surgery costs, other medical bills, physical therapy, rehabilitation, out-of-pocket expenses, lost income, disfigurement, and pain and suffering. Unfortunately, the party to blame doesn’t always offer up compensation or as much as you deserve to receive. For this reason you should speak with a Broward County slip and fall attorney who can fight for your maximum financial recovery.
