What to Do After a Slip and Fall Accident

Slip and fall accidents are a common form of premises liability, but this doesn’t mean they aren’t serious.

You don’t have to stand up against the insurance companies and businesses alone; our personal injury attorneys in Tampa can help you establish your case and fight for the compensation you need.

Here’s how Darrigo, Diaz & Jimenez can help you after an accident:

  • Researching the case, determining who is responsible
  • Discovering prior complaints against the defendant, if applicable
  • Filing proper paperwork on time, following legal procedure
  • Working with safety standard experts and investigating government code

Types of Slip & Fall Accidents

Negligent property owners who fail to resolve hazards in a timely manner cause slip and fall accidents. These injuries can happen in restaurants, malls, parking lots, hotels, retail stores, grocery stores, and other businesses. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Uneven or damaged walkways (broken / cracked sidewalks, loose steps, potholes, or other hazards)
  • Leaks, spills, or pooling rainwater
  • Debris or other foreign objects in the walkway
  • Slippery, polished surfaces (wood, tile, or vinyl floors)
