How do stairwell accidents occur in Florida?

While there are many causes of stairwell accidents in Florida, most of them are a result of property owner negligence. Some of the most common causes of stairwell accidents include the following:

  • Insufficiently lit stairwells
  • Damaged stairs
  • Uneven spacing between steps
  • Defective or broken railings
  • Lack of security

If you were injured in a stairwell as a result of another’s negligence, it is in your best interest to retain the services of an experienced Florida personal injury attorney to analyze the specifics of your case and your options.

Can I pursue legal action for a stairwell accident?

In the state of Florida, property owners have a duty to ensure that their property is safe. If a property owner fails this responsibility, serious injuries can occur as a result. If you were injured in a stairwell accident, you may be able to trace it back to negligence if you can prove that:

  • The property owner was aware of the hazard that caused your accident and did not fix it, or
  • The property owner should have reasonably been aware of the hazard.

If you believe your stairwell accident was a direct result of a property owner’s negligence, do not hesitate to reach out to our skilled personal injury firm today to speak with one of our dedicated attorneys.

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in Florida?

Florida has a statute of limitations of four years for most personal injury cases. This means that if you fail to file your stairwell accident claim within four years from the date of your accident, you will likely lose the opportunity to file the claim entirely, and you will miss the chance to recover the compensation you deserve.

Premises liability claims are time-sensitive. Do not wait to reach out to our firm today to get started on the claims process. Our experienced personal injury attorneys are equipped with the knowledge and skill required to ensure that you are promptly filing your claim.
