Overtown Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers

Overtown Slip and Fall Accident

Overtown is the historic part of Miami. Long ago, it was designated as a "colored town" due to the large African American community. They now constitute 77% of the 7,000 residents. Around 20% are Latin Americans, while 3% are white or from some other origin. The neighborhood is located between Downtown Miami, Allapattah, Little Havana, and Edgewater.

Did you slip and fall and were injured in Overtown, Miami? If the answer is yes, don't be embarrassed of that. People sometimes slip and fall due to their own recklessness.

Who is Responsible for Slip and Fall Accidents?

The simple answer is that the person or company who owns or operates the area where you slipped may be responsible for your injuries, but only under certain circumstances. Slip and falls usually happen in restaurants, bars, nightclubs, retail stores, shopping malls, and gas stations. If your accident happened in a place like that in Overtown, chances are that the commercial premise’s management might be liable.

Under Florida premises liability and negligence laws, commercial enterprises that invite visitors to their premises owe them a duty of care. It means they are obliged to provide a reasonably safe environment to them and prevent all the foreseeable injury-causing accidents. In your case, it might mean keeping the floors free of liquids and substances that could cause slipping and falling. Most businesses try their best but sometimes their negligence leads to a breach of the duty. They fail to notice that a liquid has been spilled, fail to put a warning sign for slippery floors, or don't clean well enough. If such a negligence led to your accident and your injuries, then the operator or owner may be liable for the damages caused. Those damages may include:

  • Medical treatment costs
  • Medical rehab and medication expenses
  • Lost earnings and wages
  • Loss of financial support
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent or temporary impairment or disability
  • Scarring, disfigurement or loss of a bodily function

You can recover damages for other harms and losses as well. It depends on the circumstances of the case, the sustained injuries and Florida law. Your Overtown slip and fall attorney will provide you with details once you tell them about your case.

A big shout out to Nick Gerson & Schwartz for helping me navigate my care after a fall against a major cruise ship. They took care of me all along the way and saw me through such a very hard time. I highly recommend their firm if you are looking for a firm that truly cares about you. 5 Stars all the way! Janna Wright, Google User
Mr Nick Gerson has been extremely attentive (even on weekends!) and has been more than willing to take time to answer all my questions. His receptionist (Suzanne) and paralegal (Carla) are courteous, friendly and highly efficient in all matters. Mr Gerson's diligence lead to a very quick resolution of my case. I am more than pleased to recommend you seek him as your attorney. You will not regret you did!! G.I.B.
Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side. I have appreciation for the good service that was given to me and my situation. Thanks. Cales & Mr. Hyde (Carlos Andrés García Jiménez), Google User
