Slipping and falling outside your home – in a mall, store, office building and so on, is not just embarrassing, it can result in you getting injured pretty badly. People slip and fall due to many reasons: wet floors, debris, garbage or other objects on the floor, spilt liquids (soap water, oil) and the like. If the floor is smooth, to begin with, any extraneous matter on it may cause you to have a really bad fall resulting in severe injuries.
Such falls could result in deep wounds, broken bones, head and neck injuries or more; a particularly bad fall – especially if the slip causes the fall from a height – may even result in the person going into a coma. Not only do you have to recover from your injuries but you also have to pay for all your treatment; you may also be unable to go to work for quite some time, resulting in loss of wages. This can add significant mental trauma to the physical trauma you have already suffered. Of course, someone had been careless, which caused your fall and injuries and subsequent financial crises; and that someone needs to be held accountable.
Business owners as well as property managers are morally obliged to ensure that there is absolutely no debris or spillage on any walkway, and to provide visible and appropriate warnings regarding wet floors during cleaning.
Once you have had medical treatment, your next step should be consulting an Orlando injury attorney. You may think that you know where you fell, and you will be able to just find out the building owner or lessee and demand compensation. But things are not so simple. Firstly, there have been several changes to the legislation regarding such accidents. Secondly, these people are not going to be pushovers; they will have their lawyers and insurance companies working hard to make sure they pay the minimum in terms of compensation for such incidents, and you may not get fair treatment.
