Bradenton Slip and Fall Lawyers Hold Negligent Property Owners Responsible
If you’ve been injured from a slip and fall accident, you may be entitled to compensation
We’ve all had a fall at one time or another. Most of the time, a fall results in only a minor injury, like a sprained ankle that heals quickly and has no lasting consequences. However, some falls result in serious injuries like head trauma or internal bleeding that can cause serious or life-altering consequences. Serious injuries caused by a serious slip and fall accident are often the result of someone’s negligence, such as a property owner who did not fix the loose stair rail, or who did not fix broken tiles, cement or other flooring. The Bradenton slip and fall lawyers at Carlson, Meissner, Hart and Hayslett, P.A. hold negligent property owners accountable and fight to get the compensation you deserve for your injuries. Our dedicated attorneys have a track record of getting results for clients just like you, who have been seriously injured in a fall.
Understanding liability and negligence in slips and falls
Proving negligence or liability in your slip and fall is critical to the success of your case. Our experienced Bradenton slip and fall lawyers have a thorough understanding of the Florida laws related to these cases and have the tools and resources to build a strong case on your behalf.
Our attorneys work with an extensive team of investigators and experts to analyze every aspect of your case and show how the property owner or other responsible party had knowledge of the hazard (or should have) and failed to take action to correct it. Some of the people we work with include:
- Private investigators
- Forensic specialists
- Structural engineers
- Safety experts
- Doctors and other medical specialists
During our investigation, it will be not only important to determine the negligence of the property owner or manager but also to determine how much of your own negligence contributed to the accident, if any. Florida recognizes the concept of contributory negligence, which says that if you are partially at fault for the accident, your compensation will be reduced accordingly. Therefore, it will be our goal to minimize or eliminate your personal negligence in the eyes of the law.
What kind of compensation can you get for my slip and fall?
In every personal injury case, the amount of compensation you get will depend on a number of factors, including the severity of your injuries and the impact they have on your quality of life, such as your mobility and your ability to work. Since 1971, our personal injury lawyers have helped thousands of injured victims receive the compensation they deserve. We also handle auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents and all types of criminal defense matters,including DUI.
Our Bradenton slip and fall lawyers fight to maximize your compensation by showing the long-term impact that your injuries will have on your life. This may include:
- Your past and future medical costs, including surgery, rehabilitation, and ongoing care
- Lost wages from time you missed from work during your rehabilitation and time you may lose due to your diminished capacity
- Cost of ongoing home health care or therapy

The information our team of accident investigation experts uncover during our investigation will be instrumental in making the case for these and other arguments to increase your settlement. Our attorneys are committed to maximizing your settlement so you are justly compensated for your injuries.
