What is Premises Liability Law (Slip and Falls)?
Premises Liability law is a type of Personal Injury law in which an injury was caused by some type of unsafe or defective condition on someone's property due to the property owner's failure to use reasonable care in connection with the property.
If you slip and fall on someone else's property, the property owner may be liable for your injuries if negligence on their part can be established.
While there is no precise way to determine when someone else is legally responsible for your slip or trip and fall, Premise Liability cases depend on whether the property owner acted responsibly so that slipping or tripping was not likely to happen, and on whether you exercised caution as well.
Recovering for Damages
After a fall, the process of filing an insurance claim and determining liability for your fall can be long and complex. The insurance companies that represent the owner of the premises have experienced lawyers and adjusters whose job is to pay as little as possible (or nothing at all) on claims, and to try to get you to accept a quick, and often insufficient, settlement for your injuries and damages.
If you have slipped or tripped and fallen in a public place due to the negligence of others, Personal Injury Attorney Sid Roman can file an insurance claim (and/or lawsuit) on your behalf to seek compensation for the damages the premises owner caused.
In our experience and in general terms, depending on the injuries, slip or trip and fall matters can yield a reasonable amount of financial compensation if negligence is established. The cases that yield the most financial compensation are those in which the client suffers fractures, lacerations or any other type of permanent injury. If no fractures or permanent damage occurs, the injury is deemed a “soft tissue injury" by insurance adjustors, and this can reduce the potential recovery.
Personal Responsibility (Comparative Negligence)
Premises Liability claims or cases typically have a percentage of personal responsibility built in. In other words, you will likely bear some amount of blame and will be partially responsible for your fall. Certain factors will play into the argument for whether the property owner may be liable for your fall, and how much monetary compensation they may owe you for your injuries and damages. Examples include:
The type of footwear you were wearing (from the least secure, a flip flop, to the most secure, a steel-toe boot)
Whether you were holding anything else in your hands or arms when you fell (child, purse, items for purchase, etc.)
Whether you were paying attention to where you were walking (i.e., were using or on your phone?)
Your age and weight

How Can a Slip and Fall Attorney like Sid Roman Help me Obtain Compensation for my Fall?
As your Personal Injury Attorney, not only will Sid seek financial compensation for your injuries, but he will also take the legal and administrative burden off of you so that you can focus on your physical recovery.
Insurance companies act in their best interest, not yours. They have experienced lawyers and adjustors whose job is to pay as little as possible (or nothing at all) on slip and fall claims, and to try to get you to accept an often insufficient settlement for your injuries quickly.
Instead of dealing with insurance adjustors and attorneys yourself to attempt to recover a fair settlement, Sid can represent your legal interests and pursue the best course of action to obtain and maximize your financial recovery.
The financial recoveries that an experienced Accident Attorney like Sid can obtain on behalf of his clients are typically significantly larger than the recoveries individuals are able to obtain for themselves.
Additionally, on your behalf, Sid will:
Deal with insurance companies and adjustors
Ensure you get the best possible medical treatment and rehabilitation for your injuries
Deal with medical bills from hospitals, doctors, therapists, etc.

How Do I Know if I Have a Slip & Fall Case?
Call us at 407-251-1200 for your FREE consultation of course! That said, If you have slipped or tripped and fallen in a public place in Orlando or anywhere in Florida, there are certain elements that are necessary in order to potentially benefit from being represented by Sid for your fall, and to establish a successful Slip and Fall claim.
Assuming that your fall was caused due to a substance, fixture, uneven floor surface, or object on the floor:
Was the substance, fixture or object on the floor for thirty (30) minutes or more without being cleaned or removed by anyone?
Did anyone tell you to stay away from the area?
Were there any warning signs posted near the substance or object?
Did the owner/employees/agents of the premises have prior knowledge that the substance/object was interfering with the entrance and/or exit of its guests or customers?
Were you given medical attention as a result of your fall?
After the fall:
Did the property or premises owner call for help or assistance for you right away?
Did the property or premises owner prepare an incident or accident report?
Is the owner of the premises ignoring you or not returning your calls?
Is the owner of the premises attempting to deny that your injuries were caused by the fall?
Is the owner's insurance company offering an insufficient settlement?
Other factors that will affect the strength of your case:
The severity of the injuries resulting from the fall
Whether there were any witnesses
Whether there was any photo or video evidence of your injuries, and of the environment in which you fell

Your Road To Recovery Starts Here
What Happens During my Slip and Fall Case? What Can I Expect?
If handling your slip and fall claim, Sid will be hard at work behind the scenes building a strong case for you. While you are following your rehabilitative treatment, Sid will be working on the following on your behalf:
Investigating the details of your fall and assessing your damages
Gathering all relevant information (pictures, accident reports, witness statements, proof of damages, etc.)
Identifying all insurance benefits available to you
Filing a personal injury claim with the insurance company of the premise owner
What are my Responsibilities?
The most important things you can do after a slip and fall to ensure a strong case are the following:
Follow and complete your rehabilitative medical treatment. The treatment followed has a direct bearing on the recovery of your case.
Avoid posting on social media regarding your fall. Social media posts may lead to the denial of your insurance claim, or may become evidence that can be used against you if we file suit lawsuit.
Settlement or Litigation?
Once you complete your treatment, Sid will begin to negotiate a fair settlement for you with the insurance company of the at-fault party. At this point, a large number of cases get negotiated and settle out of court without having to file a lawsuit.
However, if the insurance company does not offer what your case merits, Sid will offer the option of filing suit and taking your case to court. Sid will continue to represent you at no cost through the litigation process until he obtains a fair and satisfactory recovery for you. Remember, there is NO COST to you until or unless he obtains a recovery.
Our Results Speak for Themselves
what our clients are saying
"I had a slip and fall incident in a large chain hotel. My husband and I immediately turned to Sid.
Throughout my recovery, I appreciated that Sid was accessible both over the phone and email, a definite benefit working with a smaller law firm. Once time to close the case, Sid was a keen negotiator.
Although a very unfortunate incident, I was pleased with the professionalism and final outcome that Sid facilitated."
