Slip and Fall Due to a Leaking Roof, Should I Get a Lawyer?

Slip and Fall Due to a Leaking Roof, Should I Get a Lawyer

If you were injured as a result of slipping and falling from a leaking roof, you should hire a personal injury attorney immediately. Leaking roofs can occur at an apartment, condo, hotel, motel, gym, mall or any business you are a guest. Building owners have a duty under Florida law to properly maintain their buildings to ensure that their premises are safe and when they fail to do so, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries after a slip and fall.

To establish a slip and fall case from a leaking roof, you need to hire the right personal injury attorney. Typically, these types of cases require litigation. What that means is that a lawsuit will need to be filed against the property owner, maintenance company, etc. where the leak occurred. The lawsuits are common in slip and fall cases because the property owner’s insurance company will argue that they did not have notice of the leak, therefore are not liable for your injuries. However, this argument is misplaced under Florida law and it takes filing a lawsuit to get the insurance carrier for the property to pay you fair compensation.

Insurance companies fail to realize that their property owner always has a duty to maintain their premises. This means regular inspections, repairs, and maintenance to ensure that there are no dangerous conditions that can cause harm to their guests. When the insurance carrier argues that they did not know about the leak, this is a weak argument. Just because the property owner did not know about the leak doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have know about that leak if they had properly maintained and inspected their premises. If they had conducted regular inspections they would have noticed the defect in the ceiling or roof which caused the leak. If they did proper inspections they would have realized they had a mold issue that decayed the ceiling or roof which caused the leak. During litigation, a personal injury attorney will be able to take depositions and receive discovery documentation to prove your slip and fall case and prove the property owner was negligent.

Thank you so much Devon & your team for such excellent service. From the second we contacted Devon about a car accident, he immediately got to work. Devon was always responsive (even on weekends) and explained every single step of the process. My aunt doesn’t speak English, but his assistant did an amazing job and was always so sweet. Devon was always one step ahead of everything and resolved my aunts case within less than 2 months. Got full settlement after the other party didn’t even want to accept liability at first. Thank you for your professionalism and hard work.

In the midst of a tragic car accident my mother was in, Devon was a shining light for myself and my mother. I was referred to Devon by a previous client (he came highly recommended) and we've experienced why for ourselves. Devon handled every detail of my mother's case with care and concern, as if it was his own. He kept us up-to-date regularly and was readily available anytime we needed him (even over the holidays!) He was able to get my mother the maximum amount of payment she could receive with Allstate's uninsured motorists policy, even when they tried to lowball us originally. I would HIGHLY recommend Devon at Workman Injury Law if you are ever in need of a good and reliable personal injury attorney.

First off I'd like to say that Devon and his team are hands down amazing. The car accident I was in left me with pretty bad neck and back injuries, and Devon was there for me every step of the way. He made sure that he was available anytime I had any questions or concerns, he personally reached out to me any time there were any updates. He made a very difficult time in my life a little easier knowing he was on my side. Even after everything was said and done, he went as far following up with my bank to ensure my settlement was available in a timely manner which was beyond helpful to my family and I. We cannot thank him enough and would happily recommend his services to anyone seeking legal help!
