Slip and fall accidents are one of the leading causes of accidental deaths. When a person hits their head on a hard surface, like concrete pavement, it can prove deadly. If the slip and fall accident was the result of negligence on the part of a property owner, a family may turn to Tampa injury lawyers to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
Other injuries caused by slip and fall accidents could include internal bleeding, spinal cord damage, broken bones, and organ damage. Property owners are required by law to keep the premises in a reasonably safe condition. For example, if a person was walking through a grocery store and they slipped and broke a bone because the grocery floor was wet and there were no signs marking the wet floor, the property owner may be liable.
A lot is going to depend on the circumstances and what the property owner was reasonably expected to do to keep those on their property safe. Tampa injury lawyers would thoroughly investigate the incident, especially if it led to wrongful death.
The wrongful death suit would likely be filed by the relatives of the deceased individual. In most cases, any damages awarded would go to the spouse or the living children of the deceased individual. In circumstances where there is not living offspring or a living spouse, benefits may go to surviving siblings, nieces, or nephews.
