Suffering a Slip and Fall Injury While Visiting Florida

Florida Vacation and Tourist Premises Liability Lawyers

Unfortunately, being on vacation does not provide immunity to the negligence of others. Tourists from out of state and even out of the country can find themselves seriously injured after a slip-and-fall accident in Orlando or elsewhere in Central Florida. If you or a loved one has been hurt while on vacation, there are many good reasons to choose a Florida personal injury attorney to represent you. In some cases, it is necessary, but it is also beneficial because you will have an attorney who understands the state laws that apply to these cases and who knows how to navigate the local courts where the cases will be handled.

At The Umansky Law Firm, our attorneys represent slip-and-fall accident victims who visit Florida from all around the world. You deserve compensation, and we are committed to getting it for you. Contact us to schedule a free initial consultation.

Where Did the Slip-and-Fall Accident Happen?

The location of the accident makes a big difference. If it happened at Universal Studios or Disney World, our attorneys may approach your case differently than if it happened at a local grocery store where you were getting a snack. The bottom line is that we will put forth every effort, no matter how big our opponent is, to get you the compensation you deserve.

The following conditions may make it more likely that a person will suffer a slip-and-fall accident:

  • Slippery or wet floors
  • Fallen produce
  • Highly-polished floors
  • Vacuum cords
  • Smooth concrete
  • Pool tiles
  • Cracked or uneven sidewalks or walkways
  • Uneven steps or stairs
  • Loose or missing handrails
  • Uncovered holes
  • Litter on floors in stores
  • Debris in exterior walkways

Possible Injuries from a Slip-and-Fall Accident

Slip-and-fall accidents are the top cause of traumatic brain injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Traumatic brain injuries or TBIs can affect a person’s mental faculties and physical abilities for many months or even years. In some cases, injuries are so severe a person must adjust to a whole new way of life for a lifetime. At the Umansky Law Firm, we fight aggressively on your behalf to help you get the compensation you need to adjust to these changes and more.

Additionally, slip-and-fall accidents can lead to:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Fractured or broken bones such as the collarbones, bones in the wrists and fingers
  • Herniated discs
  • Sprained joints

Falls are also particularly dangerous for people 65 and older. According to the American Family Physician, falls are the leading cause of accidental deaths in people 75 and older. They cause more than 90% of hip fractures in the elderly, particularly in persons over 70 years of age. No matter your situation, our lawyers will use all available methods to help you recover from your injury.

Compensation for All of Your Losses

You may know that you are entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and other costs associated with the injury caused by the slip-and-fall accident. What you may not know is that you could possibly get additional compensation because you were injured while on vacation. We understand that vacations are expensive and important, and so do Florida courts. That is why you may be entitled to compensation for loss of enjoyment of your vacation and for the expense of your vacation, in addition to the typical damages. We will help you get all of the compensation you deserve.
