One of the most common types of accidents is a slip and fall. Often, slip and fall accidents can result in serious, lasting injuries.

When you or a loved one is hurt, our slip and fall lawyers in Fort Lauderdale are here to help you fight for fair compensation. With over 50 years of combined experience, we have a track record of success. Our team has recovered tens of millions of dollars in financial damages for our clients.

Premises Liability Cases We Handle

At the Law Offices of John D. Ameen, P.A., we take on slip and fall cases involving:

  • Improper lighting
  • Failure to maintain stairs and railings
  • Objects left on the ground
  • Potholes
  • Raised carpeting
  • Safety violations
  • Slippery floors
  • Uneven pavement

This is not an exhaustive list of types of cases we accept. If your slip and fall accident was the result of any type of dangerous property conditions or a defective product, our attorneys can help you seek the fair recovery you are owed.

How Long Do I Have to File a Slip & Fall Claim in Florida?

Florida law dictates that you must bring your claim within four years of the date of the accident. This is known as the statute of limitations. If you do not file your claim within this time period, you will almost undoubtedly be barred from recovering compensation. While you have four years to file, the longer you wait, the more evidence is lost and memories fade. It is imperative to speak with an injury attorney as soon as possible. This gives your legal team time to compile the necessary evidence to recover the maximum allowed compensation for your claim.

Proving Negligence in Your Slip & Fall Claim

Our attorneys are skilled in premises liability law, including slip and fall cases. We have the necessary experience to consult with investigators, interview witnesses, and review medical records to build a strong case. We can help prove that:

  • The dangerous condition was not apparent
  • You had permission to be on the property
  • You could reasonably expect safety on the property
  • You were wearing appropriate footwear
  • The property owner should have known about the unsafe condition
  • The property owner did not fix, address, or warn you of the unsafe condition

Insurance companies and property owners will usually try to minimize the amount they must pay by shifting the blame onto you. Our lawyers have experience with these types of tactics. We can create a solid case to strengthen your injury claim.
