Homestead Slip and Fall Attorney

Slip and Fall Today, it seems there’s so much to do, and so little time to get it all done. Our lives are much more complicated than they used to be. We’re constantly running errands and going about our daily lives, too busy thinking about the next thing on our to-do list. But what happens when you aren’t able to get to that next task? What do you do when your world has been completely turned upside down? And, even more frustrating – what if you’re hurt and it’s due to no fault of your own? What happens when, while running one of your errands, you slip, fall and are seriously hurt, due to someone else’s negligence? Take it from Friedman, Rodman & Frank, the Homestead Slip and Fall Attorneys - slip and fall incidents happen all the time, and these injuries hurt more than just the victim. Unfortunately, the victim’s family and other loved ones are affected as well.

According to the National Safety Council, about 8.9 million people visit emergency rooms each year due to a fall; what’s even more shocking is the fact that slip and fall accidents are the second-leading cause of unintentional deaths. Sadly, the risk of falling and being seriously injured rises with a person’s age. Slip and fall incidents can occur from a spilled product, from cracked or uneven pavement, or even at your place of employment. No matter where it happens, oftentimes, the results are tragic.

Whenever we visit a place of business or any other public or private place, we expect that place to be safe. We expect that we will leave that place in the same condition we were in when we first arrived. These aren’t unreasonable expectations.

Did you know that it’s the responsibility of all property owners to provide a safe environment, free from hazardous conditions? Owners who fail to maintain or inspect their property, refuse to correct dangerous conditions or disregard building code regulations may be liable for any and all injuries sustained as a result of their negligence.

Before you file a claim, you should consider if your own carelessness contributed to the accident or if it was because of the carelessness of someone else. This is where it can get tricky. Were you paying attention to where you were going? Were there any warnings (signs, cones, etc.) indicating danger? Was there a legitimate reason for you to be in the dangerous spot? Did the owner know about the danger? Has the hazardous spot been there long enough for the owners to get it corrected? Are there procedures in place for the business or property owner or their employees to check for safety on a regular basis? How often are areas checked, cleaned, repaired and inspected? The answers to these questions will help build your case. But more than likely, because of the sheer complicated nature of slip and fall cases, you will need good legal representation. You will want to act pretty quickly because there is a time limit for filing a slip and fall accident claim.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none. Marcos G.
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands. Nora N.
Caroyln's expertise and compassion got me through a very trying period of my life. She is an excellent lawyer and human being. 5 Star all the way! Lois H.
I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida. Mike P.
