Why Do Allapattah Trip and Fall Accidents Happen?

You don’t expect to get hurt when you visit a grocery store, restaurant, movie theater, or gas station. But if you trip over a crack in the sidewalk, loose cords strung across the floor, or chair legs sticking out in the aisle, you can get hurt.

A trip-and-fall accident happens when you stumble or lose your balance and fall. These accidents usually occur when a person’s foot gets caught or strikes another object.

Our Allapattah trip and fall accident lawyers help people whose injuries were caused by:

  • Uneven flooring
  • Broken or cracked tile
  • Hidden curbs
  • Cracked pavement
  • Boxes, carts, or other obstacles left in aisles
  • Shelves that hang close to the floor
  • Stairs with differing heights
  • Parking lot potholes or dips
  • Poorly lit exterior walkways
  • Exposed cords or cables
  • Elevator doors that don’t open flush to the floor
Hurt in an Allapattah Trip and Fall Accident?

Allapattah is one of the oldest communities in Miami. Settled by William P. Wagner back in 1856, the area was once known as a hub for trade and agriculture. The arrival of the Florida East Coast Railroad brought continued growth and development to the community. With the Cuban Revolution in 1959, Allapattah saw its population swell as many Cubans migrated to the community. By the 1980s, the community saw an influx of people from the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Haiti, and Nicaragua. Today, the community is known for its cultural diversity, contemporary art, and top-rated restaurants.

When you visit a store, restaurant, or any other place of business, the property’s owner or occupier is responsible for maintaining a safe premise. If the owner or manager of the property does not take the appropriate steps to keep the property safe, you could be badly hurt.

Common Allapattah trip and fall injuries include:

  • Broken or sprained wrists
  • Facial and jaw injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Knee, hip, or ankle fractures
  • Scrapes and bruises
  • Back or spinal injuries

Depending on how severe your injuries are, you might require emergency medical care, surgery, hospitalization, and physical rehabilitation. And if you are the primary source of income for your household, a severe Allapattah trip and fall injury could keep you from returning to work until you have healed. You may have difficulty paying rent, buying groceries, or keeping the lights on.

In some cases, the establishment’s insurance company may offer to settle. Before you accept a settlement, you should take steps to find out what your legal rights are. Sometimes, the damage may be far more extensive, or your recovery time could be longer than expected. Without seeking legal advice, you might accept an offer that is far less than you are entitled to.

Whether you have been offered a settlement or are forced to pursue damages on your own, you can contact Wolfson & Leon today for a free, no-obligation review of your case when you call (305) 285-1115.
