A “slip and fall” is a term used to describe a personal injury in which a person slips or trips and is injured on someone else’s property. A slip and fall case typically falls under a broader category of cases called “premises liability” claims.
Unfortunately, slip and falls are not uncommon. The painful statistics of slip and fall fatalities is a staggering 15%. Slip and falls are common and can cause bruising, abrasions, fractures and broken bones, spinal cord injuries, head trauma, long-term medical complications, and death.
In the case of a gas station such as the Boynton Beach Sunoco, individuals can suffer slip and fall either from the same level where they are walking or in an elevated situation, such as off a step or a stoop. Whether you are a victim of a same-level fall or an elevated fall, Frankl & Kominsky is available to assist you with your claim.How Are You at Risk?
Boynton's Sunoco is both a gas station and a food mart, and like all other gas stations there are numerous situations which may lead to a slip and fall.
According to the United States Census Bureau, there are an estimated 160,000 gas stations in the United States. With constant activity occurring at gas stations, excess gasoline and oil may pool on the ground, creating a perfect situation for a slip and fall accident. Poorly-maintained restrooms with spilled water, soap, and/or other fluids left on the floor also contribute to the stunning slip and fall statistics.
When you are in a rush to get to work, school or home, you don’t expect a gas nozzle to break, spraying gasoline on the ground, nor would you anticipate spilled water in the middle of an aisle. Either of these situations can cause a slip and fall.Whose Fault Is It?
Not yours! Slip and fall accidents are legally blamed on the individual or organization engaging in neglectful behavior.Legal Assistance
