Slip & Fall Accident Lawyers in Brevard County
Our Melbourne Team Fights On Your Behalf
Have you shopped in a store, tripped over a loose tile, and needed to be seen by a doctor? Did you take your dog out for a walk and slip on water left on the sidewalk by a storefront owner? If a property owner did not exercise an appropriate standard of care in maintaining their property, and you were harmed as a result, you may be able to hold the property owner accountable for your personal injury. Slip and fall accidents affect thousands of Americans each year, and under premises liability laws, you may be entitled to recover compensation for these injuries.
A majority of slip and fall accidents that occur can be avoided if property owners or management take the time to implement safety measures or take action when a hazard is discovered. When no steps are taken to ensure the safety of those on the property, slip and fall accidents can occur.
At Henderson & Futchko, P.A., we take the responsibility of property owners to care of their guests seriously. No one should have to suffer due to someone else’s negligence.
