Miami Uneven/Unlevel Surface Lawyer

There are plenty of scenarios in which a trip or slip and fall on an uneven surface would only be the fault of the faller, and no other party. Playing frisbee in someone’s backyard, hiking on a single-track, meandering through an abandoned field, or strolling on a dirt path encircling a park are just a few of these scenarios. However, there are many other cases in which we always expect the walking surface to be at least relatively smooth, level, and even without major deviations. If you tripped and fell on an uneven sidewalk, restaurant floor, big box store aisleway, or school building, the property or business owner is most likely liable for your damages. The Miami uneven/unlevel surface lawyer at Spencer Morgan Law is here to help you find out if this is the case.

Where Do Slip and Falls on Uneven Surfaces Happen?

In most areas of society, people expect even, level surfaces to walk on. A slight deviation or slant can easily cause someone to lose their footing or roll an ankle, especially if they are not looking down. And no one is expected to look down at their feet at all times, especially when they are in a shopping mall or busy restaurant. Slip and falls due to uneven or unlevel surfaces frequently occur on the following types of premises:

  • Big Box Stores
  • Home Improvement Stores
  • Malls and Shopping Malls
  • Strip Malls
  • Grocery Stores
  • Hotels
  • Resorts
  • Restaurants
  • Cafes and Coffee Shops
  • Government Buildings
  • Sidewalks
  • Parking Lots
  • Clubs and Bars
  • Apartment Complexes
  • Condominium Complexes
  • HOAs

Damages in a Miami Uneven/Unlevel Surface Claim

Property owners, business owners, and property managers can be held liable for victims’ damages if they had real or constructive knowledge about a hazard (or should have had knowledge) and did not fix or address the hazard in a reasonable amount of time. And because uneven flooring or walking surfaces generally do not become slanted overnight, it is very likely that the property owner whose premises you were injured upon did have knowledge about the hazard. If this is proven to be true, you can seek compensation for the following damages:

  • Medical expenses and projected future medical costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Lost earnings
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Property damage
  • And more
