Slip and fall accidents in Lauderdale Lakes happen when negligent property owners fail to keep up with building codes and other regulations required by law. If you have been injured in a fall accident, our office can help you file a claim. Our founding lawyer, Dan Cytryn specializes in handling both slip and trip and fall accidents, and fall accident cases of any kind. According to the book, Falls Aren’t Funny, (and we agree), the following are common factors contribute to a slip and fall accident case:
- Walkway surfaces
- Improper floor maintenance procedures
- Walkway hazards
- Slopes and elevations
- Walkway transitions
- Mats and rugs
- Footwear (type and fit)
- Lighting (visual hazards)
- Stairway design
- Distractions (displays, advertisements)
- Walkway hazards and improper identification

Hiring a Slip and Fall Lawyer in Lauderdale Lakes
If this is your first time filing an injury claim, our firm recommends doing research on personal injury firms. Do not base your decision on an attorney simply because he/she is located in your city or is close to your home.
Not sure of what to look for in an attorney? Begin by checking to make sure your prospective attorney only handles personal injury cases. Attorneys that handle different areas of law in addition to personal injury are not recommended because they may lack the experience to properly handle your Lauderdale Lakes fall accident case.
Next, be sure your attorney is ethical and is in good standing with the Florida Bar. You may look for this by simply typing your lawyer’s first and last name in the member search on the Florida Bar website. The Florida Bar lets you know whether your attorney has been disciplined for misconduct within the past 10 years.
Once you have verified your attorney is ethical, look for years of experience, awards and recognitions, and a record of previous results for cases similar to yours. Attorney Dan Cytryn has been recognized as a Super Lawyer* from 2010 to 2013 and was part of Florida Trend’s Legal Elite for the year 2011.
In addition, Mr. Cytryn is a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), a nationwide invitation-only organization of 6,000 trial attorneys. He has also been an E.A.G.L.E. for the Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers, now known as the Florida Justice Association, for over 20 years and is a frequent fundraiser for the organization.
