Tampa Slip and Fall Attorney Discusses Accidents Caused by Dangerous Conditions
First of all, if you have a slip and fall case, there must be a dangerous condition that contributed to causing you to fall. We’re all responsible for watching where we walk, and if there’s an open and obvious condition, you can’t recover for your injuries related to that open and obvious condition. If on the other hand there’s a latent condition, water on the Walmart floor that you can’t see but that Walmart ought to know is there and they have actual or what we call constructive knowledge of the dangerous condition and you fall and break your arm, you need to see a good orthopedic surgeon. You have an obligation to mitigate your damages to improve as much as you possibly can. You should see a reputable orthopedic surgeon in your area and consult personal injury lawyer who can evaluate that claim.
- There must be a dangerous condition that caused you to slip
