Slip and Fall Injury at Mobil Gas Station in Boynton Beach
Boynton Beach, Florida is home to three separate Mobil Gas Stations. The gas stations - located on Congress, Woolbright, and Gateway - all provide both fuel at gas pumps and a store that sells other items customers need as they transit the highways. The Mobile stations in Boynton are frequented by a wide range of customers, including those on their way to and from work and school, people out running errands, and those who specifically go to the Mobil station for gas or to pick up a quick item.
Mobil stations, like any other gas station, can also be the scene of slip and fall accidents. If you or someone you know has suffered an injury at one of the three Mobil stations in Boynton Beach, or any other gas station, due to the negligence of the property owners, call the attorneys at Frankl & Kominsky today for help.Slip and Fall At Gas Stations
A slip and fall, or a trip and fall, is an accident whereby a customer or visitor slips or trips and is injured while on property that belongs to someone else. At one of the Boynton Beach Mobil stations, or any other gas station, a customer could stumble and suffer injury for a number of reasons, none of which are their own fault. For example, if exterior pavement is uneven or broken, a customer may trip and fall. Inside the store, there are other potential hazards, including spilled or broken beverages, pooled water on the floor, obstacles blocking aisles, or any other number of items that cause a customer to slip or trip and suffer injury.The Question of Liability
By law, the owner of a property is required to maintain that property and to take actions to ensure it is safe for anyone who visits. Per Florida law, Boynton Beach gas stations would be required to clean up accidents promptly, maintain the actual premises, and generally take reasonable care to make sure the gas station is safe. If something spills, for example, the gas station employees are required to clean it up or, if they cannot immediately rectify the problem, to take other action to alert customers to the danger and help them to avoid the problem.
Like all gas stations, the owner of the Boynton Beach Mobil station, may be liable for any damage from a slip and fall if they were negligent in maintaining the environment. An injury from a slip and fall that is caused by carelessness by the customer does not fall into this category. To prove negligence, the individual who suffered the slip and fall generally needs to show that there was a dangerous condition and that the owner either knew of that condition, or should have reasonably been aware of that condition.Why Frankl & Kominsky?
