Involved In A Slip And Fall? There Are More Types Of Slip And Fall Than You May Realize

When you are recovering from a slip and fall accident in Florida, it may be difficult for you to ascertain just how strong your case might be.

There are many different circumstances under which a slip and fall might be deemed to be partially or totally the fault of another party, particularly a business.

Even if you believe that you might have been at fault in your slip and fall, it is important to examine all of the angles of a case and bring it to a qualified attorney.

Slip and fall lawyers in Florida can help you to evaluate whether your accident may have been the result of another person’s negligence.

In fact, that is one of the main factors in any slip and fall: Someone has acted negligently, by not doing something that they should have or by doing something that they shouldn’t have.

Taking A Quick Glance At Some Of The Many Different Kinds Of Slip And Fall

It’s true that there are some cases where someone might fall and no one is at fault. However, this is not typically the case when it comes to a commercial property. A failure to set out a sign while cleaning the floors, or to adequately dry floors during rainfall, could be negligent.

This negligence in turn leads to a dangerous condition that makes a fall much more likely. In cases involving commercial properties, this can be surprisingly “cut and dried.”

However, there are other, more unusual types of slip and fall that may also be brought to court:

  • A slip and fall that takes place at a private residence when one is there legally.
  • A slip and fall that takes place on public property, such as in a park or even a courthouse.
  • A slip and fall that takes place in your own home but is caused by a defective product.

Can A Slip And Fall Case Be Dismissed If You Are “Prone” To Falling?

Slip and fall cases generally rely on an unusual condition being present, and a responsible party failing to do anything about it. On those grounds, even if a person lacks coordination and is at special risk of falling, this is not generally a factor.

In fact, people who have mobility issues or other problems that make them more likely than others to fall are very typically the most cautious and foresighted individuals when it comes to preventing a fall, which can actually be helpful.

In extreme cases of impairments that put someone at risk of falling, there could be an argument made that an individual “assumed risk” by braving certain conditions. However, if there is a disability or illness involved, businesses must be careful not to discriminate under ADA.
