Bradenton Slip and Fall Lawyer
Many people are seriously injured by slip and fall accidents. In fact, according to the CDC, every year over 800,000 people are hospitalized and approximately 3 million older people are treated in emergency departments for fall injuries.
Slip and fall accidents can cause very serious injuries, including broken bones or head injuries. Hips, wrists, ankles and arms are all susceptible to fractures from falling, with more than 95% of all hip fractures occurring because of falls. Fall accidents are also the number one cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
It’s a tragic fact that many of these injuries could have been prevented if property owners and managers had made sure their property was safe. Property owners and managers have a legal duty under Florida law to take reasonable care to maintain and operate their premises so they are safe for visitors, customers, and guests. When they fail to do so, they may be held legally responsible for injuries caused by their negligent failure to keep their premises safe.
If you have been injured by falling because of unsafe conditions on someone else’s property, you may be able to hold the negligent party responsible and obtain substantial compensation for the losses and suffering you have experienced and may continue to experience in the future. The Dennis Hernandez Bradenton lawyers have helped hundreds of people throughout Florida get the compensation they deserve for their injuries and welcome the opportunity to put their experience and expertise to work for you.
