“The Trip, Slip and Fall or Construction Defect cases are always unique to the client, location of the injury or death, type of negligence and damages. Pasco County and the New Port Richey area in particular is so common to see these cases as the commercial landscape is constantly in transition. This is an issue because sometimes commerce moves faster than common sense and safety and innocent customers and bystanders are injured due to mistakes, errors and negligence by our local business community. Making matters worse, our local business community relies upon Insurance Companies to compensate those injured and too often this does not occur. Because every case is so different, we take great care in investigating every aspect of the file from the very beginning. Other injury lawyers often treat premises liability cases like auto accident cases and wait too long to do an adequate investigation. These cases often end up in litigation, and we intend to be ready to fight on each and every file.”
- Jason M. Melton, Esq. Pasco County Slip, Trip and Fall Lawyer
To many the words slip, trip and fall sound innocent, however, a victim of a slip, trip and fall accident knows just how serious these injuries can be. When the owners of a property or public place fail to meet the standards of a reasonably safe environment and someone is injured, this is no joking matter.
Every guest that visits a property or public area has the right to expect a certain level of safety. Possessors of property that do not meet those expectations can be held responsible for their negligence. The Slip, Trip and Fall Attorneys at Whittel & Melton can help you retrieve the compensation you deserve for your slip and fall accident claim.
In slip, trip and fall claims the plaintiff generally must prove that the possessors of the property created or negligently ignored an unsafe condition, failed to maintain a reasonably safe property or even failed to warn about an unsafe hazard that resulted in an injury. A large issue could be whether the unsafe risk was a temporary or permanent one. If the condition was temporary, the duration of time it remained in existence could bear weight on your case.Accidents Happen
Slip, trip and fall injuries can occur anywhere, whether it be at your friends home, a movie theatre, restaurant or shopping mall. These accidents fall under the area of law called premises liability, which allows victims of negligent property conditions to claim reimbursement from property owners for lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering and other costs associated with injuries from the accident.
Slip, trip and fall accidents can occur from:
- Torn Carpets
- Wet Surfaces
- Defective Appliances
- Obstructed Walkways
- Slippery Floors
- Uneven Sidewalks or Floors
- Broken Stairwells
- Cracked Railings
- Poorly Lit Areas
- Wet Indoor tiles being used in an Outdoor area
