When Poor Lighting Causes a South Florida Slip and Fall
Inadequate lighting produces dangerous conditions for anyone working in those conditions or visiting the area that has been poorly lit. We all need adequate light to see where we are going. When poor lighting conditions prevent you from seeing something in your pathway, or another obvious hazard, then a South Florida slip and fall accident may result.
Work spaces, walkways, stairways, hallways, malls, offices, and supermarkets should keep their spaces well lit, replace bulbs when they are burnt out, and repair faulty lighting immediately in order to prevent as many slip and fall accidents from occurring on their property.
When a slip and fall does happen, injuries resulting from the dangerous property condition can surface immediately or may take days or weeks to show up. If you have fallen on someone else’s property, even if you do not see your injuries immediately, it is wise to seek medical treatment immediately after any type of slip and fall accident in Florida.
Whether your accident occurred in an office building, parking lot, grocery store, apartment building, hotel, or private residence, slip and fall accidents have been known to cause serious injuries including:
- Back and neck injuries
- Broken bones
- Torn ligaments
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injury
- And more
If your injury has lowered your quality of life, it is important to speak with a knowledgeable slip and fall lawyer in Fort Lauderdale promptly to find out your rights and the time limits you have to file a premises liability claim for your injury.
