Orlando Slip / Trip-and-Fall Accidents Attorneys
A property owner has a responsibility to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition. Property owners
must also exercise reasonable care for the safety of others, which includes a responsibility to warn of a dangerous
condition. If they fail to do so, they should face a premises accident lawsuit.
At the Bodiford Law Group, we have handled many cases involving slips and falls and other types of premises
accidents. We offer free initial consultations for potential personal injury cases including premises liability
accidents. We do all premises liability cases on a contingency basis, meaning that we charge clients no attorneys
fees until they win a settlement or verdict.
What Qualifies as a Premises Accident?
Premises accidents involve injuries while shopping, dining or conducting business on the premises of property
owned or controlled by another. These cases can take many forms. Shoppers can slip and fall over debris or water
that accumulated after a store employee mopped the floor. A person can walk down stairs that collapse as a result
of faulty design, construction, or maintenance. Even dog bites qualify as premises accidents, since dog owners
have a responsibility for the dangers posed by their dogs.
In one example of a case handled by our premises accident lawyer, a 50 year-old manager of a local jewelry store
walked into a local supermarket and slipped and fell on a liquid substance. At the time, there were three
employees, including the manager, within five feet of her who failed to clean up the liquid or provide a warning. She
suffered serious leg injuries, medical bills and other expenses. We successfully obtained a $400,000.00 settlement
that more than adequately compensated her and met her future needs.
In another case involving a trip and fall in a supermarket, our client fractured her ankle, which required surgery to
insert pins, screws, and plates. We successfully settled the case two days prior to trial for $92,500.00. For more
about this case and other past successes, visit our Verdicts and Settlements page.
