Miami Slip & Fall Accident Lawyer
Injured in a Fall in Miami?
Slip and falls occur when someone slips, trips, or falls on another person's property. Both slip and fall and trip and fall cases that are caused by negligence are covered under premises liability law, since they are the direct result of a defect or dangerous condition on the premise.
It may be difficult to handle your case without the help of an attorney due to the destruction of evidence that typically occurs prior to investigation. Additionally, slip and fall cases often involve complex liability matters. You will want to get the help of a dedicated lawyer.
We provide the following benefits to clients who retain our services:

- 115+ years of experience

How Do you Prove Property Owner Negligence?
A property owner can be held liable for your injuries if he or she failed to maintain a safe environment or warn of a dangerous condition that existed on the property. The elements of a premise liability case will vary from state to state, so it is important to check the laws of your jurisdiction. One of the biggest challenges in premises liability cases is proving liability for the injuries sustained. There are many factors of proving liability but generally, the injured party will have to prove:
- that the person whose actions led to the injury (the defendant) owned, leased or occupied the property
- that the defendant was negligent in their use or treatment of the property
- that this negligent behavior was a substantial factor in causing the injuries sustained
Was Someone Else at Fault for Your Fall?
It may not be immediately evident who you can file against in pursuit of the compensation you deserve. At Stabinski Law, we have vast experience and a solid reputation investigating a case to determine who should be held liable for the case. Once we determine the responsible party, we can take action to hold them responsible for the damages you have suffered.
Some of the more common causes of slip & fall accidents include:
- Poor lighting
- Narrow stairs
- Wet floors
- Broken sidewalks
- Icy surfaces
- Torn carpeting
After slipping and falling on another's premise in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, or anywhere in South Florida, you can call on our firm to handle your case. Even if another lawyer has turned you away, we encourage you to contact Stabinski Law!
Can I Sue for My Slip and Fall?
If you slipped and fell on someone else's hazardous property, you may be wondering whether or not you have the right to seek damages from the property owner. Every case is different, which means that it may be in your best interest to discuss the specific cause of your accident with a Miami personal injury attorney. We will first need to determine whether or not you had the right to be on the property, since this will play a crucial role in the success, or failure, of your claim.
Only two types of visitors are owed a "duty of care" by the property owner:
Property owners owe invitees the highest level of care, as this would include anyone who was either directly or indirectly invited onto the premises (i.e. customers at a retail store).
Property owners also owe licensees a high level of care, as this would include anyone who was allowed onto the property as a social guest (i.e. friends visiting a home).
Property owners typically owe trespassers no level of care, as this would include anyone who has entered the property without permission or consent from the owner.
