Proving Liability in a Slip, Trip, or Fall Accident

Residential property owners, business operators, managers, and government agencies are legally responsible for keeping their premises safe for tenants, visitors, employees, and guests. However, millions of people are injured in our country annually in slip, trip, or fall accidents due to the negligence of others. These premises liability claims occur at the workplace, in residential homes, and in commercial settings.
Under Florida law, property owners must regularly monitor and meet safety standards. A negligent property owner fails to use reasonable care to protect those on their premises. If you or a loved one has been injured in a slip, trip, or fall accident, it is in your best interest to contact an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you navigate the complex legal process. For nearly two decades, Attorney Jarian Lyons has worked tirelessly, seeking justice for those injured, who experience preventable and unexpected accidents due to the negligence of others. He will help you understand your legal rights and options and fight to get you the compensation you deserve.

Types of Injuries Sustained

Minor to major trauma can occur from a slip, trip, or fall accident. The most common injuries include broken bones, sprains, strains, head injuries, spinal cord injuries, lacerations, and internal injuries. These injuries may be lifelong and debilitating, causing substantial pain and hardship. In a worst-case scenario, these incidents can lead to death.

Common types of Medical Malpractice Claims:

Uneven or wet flooring

Poor lighting

Unsecured handrails

Broken stairways

Building code violations


Loose wires and cables

Broken sidewalks


Unmarked construction areas

Loose or slippery mats and rugs

Failure to post warning signs

Insurance companies and property owners often try to blame the injured for their slip, trip, or fall accident. For example, they may challenge the claim by saying the injured has comparative fault for not paying attention to their surroundings or wearing inappropriate shoes. At Lyons Legal, LLC, we stand up to those who try to devalue or deny your claim. We build a strong case supported by evidence and testimony to leverage a favorable settlement.

Insurance Claims for Slip, Trip, or Fall Accidents

Generally, the sources of a settlement for slip and fall accidents include Florida’s workers’ compensation system, homeowner’s insurance, and commercial liability insurance. Florida’s workers’ compensation system provides benefits to employees injured on the job, regardless of who is at fault. Homeowner’s insurance policies typically cover slip, trip, or fall accidents on residential properties. Commercial liability insurance provides coverage for non-employees who sustain injuries in a place of business. When a favorable settlement is not reached after aggressive negotiations with an insurance carrier, Lyons Legal, LLC, is always prepared to present your case to a judge and a jury.
