Slip & Fall Accident Lawyers

Helping Victims of Slip & Fall Accidents

No Attorneys' Fees Unless you Collect

Getting injured in a slip & fall accident can be extremely stressful. However, the lawyers at The Burton Firm can assist you in understanding your rights as a victim that was in a slip & fall accident. Typically, many businesses have liability insurance policies with insurance coverage for slip & fall accidents. However, our legal team will evaluate your case to determine the amount of insurance coverage available to you.

Generally speaking, pursuant to Florida law and procedure (See, Form 1.951, Florida Rules of Civil Procedure), to be successful on a claim for slip & fall, an injured party must be able to prove:

  1. Who owned and/or controlled the property where the slip & fall occurred;

  2. That the injured party was permitted to be at the property where the slip & fall occurred;

  3. 3. The property where the slip & fall occurred was negligently maintained and/or contained a dangerous slip & fall hazard;

  4. The dangerous slip & fall hazard was known to the party that owned and/or controlled the property where the slip & fall occurred; and,

  5. The injured party suffered damages as a result of the slip & fall.


In order to prove damages, an injured party typically needs to show that the slip & fall resulted in injuries on or about their body and extremities, that they suffered pain from such injuries, that they incurred medical expenses in the treatment of their injuries, that they suffered a physical handicap, that they had their working ability impaired, that the injuries are either permanent or continuing in nature, and/or that they will suffer losses and impairment in the future. Our attorneys can advise you on the specifics of your damages claim.

Our attorneys have years of experience representing slip & fall victims and helping recover monies for our clients’ medical bills, pain and suffering, physical injuries, and property damage stemming from the slip & fall. We have handled a broad range of slip & fall cases with varying degrees of injuries (e.g. soft tissue damage, dislocated shoulders, back sprains, tail bone injuries, bulging discs, neck and back pain, disc herniation, ligament tears, broken bones, etc.). We have represented victims that had slip & fall injuries in restaurants, hotels, and even with a medical transportation company. We have also represented victims of slip & fall accidents with cases involving some of the largest commercial insurance companies (e.g. State National and Beazley
