Slips and Falls

Every day in Florida people are injured by slipping or tripping and falling on someone else’s property. The personal injury attorneys of Howell & Thornhill can help if you or a loved one is a victim of a dangerous condition on property that causes an injury.

Every landlord and property owner has the duty to keep all areas safe for customer use. Often, large stores leave water, food, or merchandise on the floor, without regard to the safety of their customers. Injuries from falls can occur when a property owner maintains a dangerous condition, fails to warn of the dangerous condition, and fails to maintain the property is a safe condition.

Failure to Use Safety Cones

A property owner has a duty to prevent slips and falls – premises liability. Safety cones are inexpensive, easy to use, and provide instant recognition of a dangerous condition. The failure of the property owner to use visible warnings for dangerous conditions can lead to serious injuries.

Failure to Use Non-Skid Doormats

A dirty and wet floor is one the leading causes of slips and falls. Since many hard floors are not slip resistant, doormats make traffic areas safer by trapping dirt and water before it enters homes and businesses. Property owners have the duty to prevent injuries by ensuring that floor mats are used and will hold up to Florida’s extreme weather conditions.

Dangerous Conditions

Severe injuries are caused by the negligent maintenance, operation, or design of land and property. Dangerous conditions create unreasonable risks of injury to customers and visitors. Landlords and property owners must use reasonable care to protect against injuries created by the defective condition.

I want to say a special thank you to Tommy Ray for the help with a homeless vet. The donation of the tv meant so much to this vet he could not believe that someone he never met would help. This vet is a Vietnam Veteran and had nothing. This is the kind of people that work at Howell and Thornhill thank you. We now have this vet with shelter .

What a great experience we had with this firm. Spencer and his team went above and beyond my expectations. Check them out if you need some legal help. Trust me when I say that these insurance company’s are get hard to deal with. You are definitely gonna need to bring your “A” game. So bring Howell and Thornhill P.A.
If you are injured by a careless driver do not even consider going it alone. PIP rules and insurance companies are  NOT USER FRIENDLY! Spencer Pastorin and Howell & Thornhill rescued me from the sticky web that no-fault has become. Recovering from a bicycle vs truck crash is certainly not easy but good personal injury lawyers can prevent a whole lot of frustration and help you get the compensation you deserve.
