Plantation-Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer
Trip and Fall Lawyers in Plantation
According to the National Floor Safety Institute, falls are responsible
for more than 8 million emergency room visits, which makes falls the leading
cause of visits for hospital emergencies. If you have been to the hospital
as a result of a slip or trip and fall accident due to a property owner’s
negligence, any lawyer in our firm may be able to help you obtain compensation
for your Plantation slip, trip, and fall case..
Plantation property owners are responsible for maintaining their premises
safe of slip/trip and fall hazards. Unfortunately, many do not follow
safety procedures and are inevitably sued for their negligence. Our firm
has handled cases against many large name companies and corporations including
TGI Fridays in Plantation and Coral Springs locations, Just for Feet,
K-Mart, Wal-Mart, Publix, Target, Walgreens, Applebee’s and many
other restaurant and landowners.

The case we handled at the TGI Fridays in Plantation was pertaining to
a slip and fall accident. Mr. Cytryn convinced the appeals court that
it was wrong of the trial court to exclude testimony from current and
former employees about the defendant’s “negligent mode of
operation” (using hard floor surfaces such as wood or tile where
there were frequent spills and employees trekked grease onto the floor
from the kitchen). Mr. Cytryn has been an advocate for the use of non-slip
surfaces in public places, and the use of non-slip flooring materials.
Restaurants for example, should be using carpeting instead of smooth slippery
surfaces, as spills of all sorts are foreseeable in that type of environment..
Hiring a Slip and Fall Lawyer in Plantation
Although most fall accidents occur at restaurants and retail establishments,
these accidents are not limited to those places. In fact, they can happen
in hotels, office buildings, convenience stores, transit terminals, nursing
homes, construction sites, and other industries. Many people question
whether or not they have a case due to the location of the accident. However,
if you know your accident occurred due to someone’s negligence,
it is worth discussing your case with a personal injury attorney.
Our personal injury firm offers a free consultation where you can discuss
your accident with one of our intake specialists. Even if you are not
sure if you have a case, we will listen to the details of your accident
and let you if we are able to represent you. We recommend contacting an
attorney as quickly as possible after your fall accident. Unlike other
accidents, property owners have the advantage repairing their negligence,
leaving you without evidence for your case.
Our Plantation trip, slip, and fall lawyers will send out an investigator
to the location of your accident and will take photographs to preserve
the scene. Additionally, we will hire experts if necessary to test the
materials used to construct the surface. Each case requires specific procedures
relevant to your case, therefore, you need an attorney that has the financial
resources to properly handle your case.
Often, for catastrophic injury cases, the attorney is required to front
a substantial amount of money to hire the best experts and investigators
for your slip and fall accident case. A good way to tell if your attorney
has the appropriate resources is by verifying if he/she has handled cases
that have gone to trial, which is a costly procedure.
Attorney Dan Cytryn, the founder and head attorney at the Law Offices Cytryn
& Velazquez, P.A., has handled close to 100 trials and more than 40
appeals. In addition, Mr. Cytryn has obtained several six figure verdicts
(and settlements) and even a million plus jury verdict (and settlement)
in fall cases. To see examples of our firm’s results, visit our
verdicts and settlements page.
There is no wait time to speak with a representative from our office and

we will be able to handle your case.
