You may have pulled into a gas station to fill your car’s tank with gasoline and decided to go in to use the restroom or purchase food or drinks. Unfortunately, at some point after exiting your vehicle, you may have ended up on the floor due to no fault of your own.
If your foot slipped out from underneath you, you may have been a victim of a slip and fall accident at a gas station. The truth of the matter is that slip and fall accidents in Florida do occur at gas stations due to various hazardous conditions such as:
- Wet floors or spilled liquid
- Spilled gasoline or oil
- Broken steps
- Broken or missing handrails
- Poor lighting
- Other building code violations that cause hazardous conditions
Because gas stations are businesses that are required to keep their premises clean and safe, the owner of the gas station may be liable for your injuries if the owner or employees of the gas station were aware of the hazardous conditions or had reasonable time to repair and correct the dangerous condition but failed to do so.
To find out if you have a valid slip and fall injury case and how to go about getting the financial compensation you deserve, you need to speak with a skilled Florida injury lawyer. Businesses will often try to deny liability, which is why it is critical that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
