What are the most common slip & fall accident situations?

In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm staff of personal injury attorneys that handle slip & fall accidents, understand that these are the most common causes of slip & fall accidents:

  • Slipping and falling on a slippery substance left unattended to by a business operator or employee
  • Tripping and falling on a protruding object either on the walking surface or from an object close to the walking surface. This may include a table leg, mirror leg, a floor board, or any other element that a person may trip over and fall
  • Losing your balance when walking up or down a staircase or ramp. Sometimes, uneven steps or loose bannisters may lead to a person losing their balance and falling.
  • Protruding edges at entrances or exits of a business or private residence. Sometimes, floor frames may overlap the floor surface and the edge may be slightly elevated. This can cause a person to trip, slip, and fall.
  • Poor lighting can cause a person to slip, trip, or fall upon not being able to notice substances on the walking surface or obstacles that block their way.

If you have experienced a slip, trip, or fall that any of the above mentioned slip & fall situations, the Perazzo Law Firm’s staff of personal injury lawyers that handle slip and fall accidents, recommend contacting us for a FREE consultation. Why? Because you may have a case with which to receive compensation for your injuries and losses.

Perazzo Law Recommends the Following Steps After a Slip, Trip, or Fall Incident in Miami.

  • Contact the authorities to report the slip, trip, or fall incident to establish an official account of the accident incurred.
  • Get immediate medical attention for you or any injured parties by a professional healthcare provider or a professional and established healthcare facility such as a hospital or clinic.
  • Make sure to gather any pertinent information by documenting all the events that took place before and after the slip, trip, and fall accident.
  • Never give a statement to the authorities or healthcare professionals on where or how the accident happened. Only give statements of the injuries incurred, not on how the accident happened.
  • Contact our North Miami Beach office as soon as possible to set an appointment to discuss your slip, trip, or fall accident claim for compensation.


The Perazzo Law Firm knows that most times, the property owner or insurance provider may deny negligence and claim that the injured party was partially or totally to blame for the injuries incurred. Many times, a property owner or insurance provider may claim that the injured party was a fault due to lack of common sense or awareness to any warning signs clearly posted or visible. In other words, if you see oil spilled on the floor of a gas station, don’t walk over it. If the plaintiff is declared negligent then he/she may not be eligible for compensation or receive a much lower percentage of compensation for his/her injuries. The Perazzo Law Firm considers it best to contact one of our personal injury lawyers to determine whether or not you, a family member, or loved one has a legitimate case for a slip, trip, or fall compensation claim.

Any doubts concerning a Slip, Trip, or Fall accident that leads to personal injury in a private or public establishment in Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm highly recommends contacting our North Miami Beach office Online or call (786) LAWS-411 immediately to discuss the matter with one of our Personal Injury Lawyers.
