Slip and Fall Lawyer
Owners and property managers of premises such as restaurants, shopping malls, grocery stores, or office buildings have a responsibility to protect visitors from dangerous conditions or defects in the property. If they fail to do so and an individual is injured due to their negligence the injured party may be able to seek compensation under a body of law called premises liability with the help of a personal injury lawyer. Some of the most common conditions that result in slip and fall injuries include:
However, liability in premises liability accidents may be difficult to prove because the injured party must prove that their injury was caused by an unsafe condition and the landowner or property manager was aware or should have known of such condition.
Because most of the evidence needed to prove liability in a slip and fall case is in the possession of the landowner or property manager, it is extremely important that they be notified immediately of the incident and the proper steps be taken to ensure that the evidence is preserved. Additionally, in order to prove your case, witness statements, surveillance footage, photographs, and a working knowledge of state and local codes will also likely be required. That is why it is important to select an experienced Lakewood Ranch slip and fall accident lawyer who understands your rights and is willing to fight for you.

A spinal cord injury occurs when delicate spinal cord tissue is bruised, torn or crushed. After the spinal cord is injured, messages no longer flow through the damaged area, essentially cutting off information between the brain and certain parts of the body. Generally, the functions of the body located above the point of injury will continue to work without loss of function, while the areas of the body located below the injury will be impaired.
The effects of spinal cord injuries can be devastating as victims may face shortened life spans along with the loss of both voluntary and involuntary bodily functions.
