667b45ba-257f-4e86-b142-0e5b179387dd-300x300Slip and Fall accidents encompass a special area of law governing situations where an individual suffers bodily harm while on the property of another business or individual. Slip and fall law falls under the category of Personal Injury Law governed by the standards of negligence and premises liability.

Slip and fall accidents in Miami can occur on almost any walking surface from a sidewalk to the aisle of your favorite supermarket. One of the more difficult aspects of slip and fall cases is proving how the business owner or operator of the location where the injury occurred was negligent and responsible for injuries to the slip & fall accident victim.

As a victim of a slip and fall, you are allowed to gather evidence through discovery and depositions. Discovery is an evidence gathering process during litigation, allowing the plaintiff to a lawsuit what the defendant knew of the dangerous condition. Through discovery, you may be able to gather the surveillance footage, documentation evidencing prior slip and falls. Moreover, discovery allows for the plaintiff in a personal injury lawsuit to depose the individual defendant or a representative of a defendant. Frequently the insurance company will defend the owner or the operator of the premises where the injury occurred. Typically, the defendant will place blame or a portion of the blame on the victim of the slip and fall. The defendant may suggest the victim was careless in not paying attention to the surrounding or taking a known risk resulting in an injury where one could have been avoided.
