Your Tampa Slip & Fall Accident Attorneys
Property owners and managers have a legal responsibility to ensure the safety of walking surfaces. Yet, accidental injuries sustained in falls account for close to nine-million emergency room visits each year—many caused by unsafe walking conditions, including wet or slippery floors, broken or uneven steps, cluttered walkways, or unsteady walking surfaces.

If if you slipped and fell on someone else’s property as a result of their negligence, the property owner could be liable for your injury-related expenses.
If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, you may have sustained injuries ranging from sprains or bruises to broken bones, brain injury, or even paralysis. You may have received emergency medical care; or you may need ongoing, costly medical treatments. As a result of the slip or fall, you may be out of work; and, as a result of these lost wages, unable to pay growing medical bills.
Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents
At John Bales Attorneys, we have the experience with slip and fall accidents that you need to obtain the outcome you deserve. No matter how careful you may be, unsafe walking conditions can make it near impossible to avoid slipping or falling. Serious injuries can occur as a result of a property owner’s failure to maintain a walkway or post a sign warning of a dangerous area.
Some of the more common causes of slip and fall injuries include:
- Damaged walking surfaces (including loose steps, potholes, or broken or cracked sidewalks and walkways)
- Foreign objects in your walking path or unseen debris on stairs
- Spills, leaks, or pooled rainwater
- Waxed or polished floor surfaces (such as hardwood, tile, or vinyl floor covering)
