Who Is Responsible For My Ankle Injury After I Fell On Uneven Pavement Outside A Grocery Store?
The answer to your question depends. Was the fall in the supermarket? Did the fall take place in the parking lot of the store? Did you fall on the city sidewalk or street near the grocery store?
Once you pin point where you fell, you can determine which party may be responsible. For instance, if the fall took place in the grocery store, then the store owner or company may be liable. If your South Florida slip and fall accident took place in the supermarket’s parking lot, then the grocery store may or may not be liable. The store may not be liable if they don’t own or manage the parking lot. If that’s the case, another party that owns or manages the parking lot may be liable for your fall injuries.
Additionally, if your fall from uneven pavement took place on the sidewalk or city street next to the store, you may have a potential Florida premises liability claim against the city; however, there are strict statutes of limitations in these types of claims.
Because of the complexity of slip and fall claims, it is best to speak with an experienced Broward County slip and fall attorney to find out if you have a claim and if you can get compensated for your medical bills and lost income that was a result of your ankle injury.
Sustaining an ankle injury can be a serious matter, and those responsible should be held accountable for your injuries and pain you suffered.
