Florida Slip & Fall and Premises Liability Lawyers
Slip and fall injuries are the #1 cause of costly emergency room visits across the country. Get the compensation you deserve with the help of your Tampa Bay Slip and Fall Attorneys – Kemp, Ruge & Green.
Are you suffering from a slip and fall injury that happened in Tampa Bay? You’re not alone. Slip and fall accidents are the number one cause of hospital emergency room visits, accounting for 8 million U.S. injuries per year.
Why are these injuries so common? Unfortunately, potential hazards in our environment aren’t always managed appropriately by those who are supposed to keep up with them. According to the National Flooring Safety Institute, the leading cause of slip and fall injuries is flooring hazards, including loose and broken flooring, tattered carpeting and spills from oils and other substances. Exposed debris and cluttered areas are also common causes.
In many of these cases, a store owner or building manager is responsible for the conditions that led to your injury -otherwise known as premises liability- yet they refuse to accept responsibility. Their insurance company might fight you. Even your own insurance company might want to blame you and reduce your compensation.
On top of that, you’re dealing with emergency hospitalization, ongoing medical expenses and emotional trauma from the incident. It can have a widespread impact on your life. That’s why you need the help of a slip and fall lawyer.

-Jordan Schaffner, client
Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group is here to help you understand the legal concept of premises liability, which means premises owners can be held liable for slip and fall injuries as well as other types of injuries in certain circumstances. We will help you gather the materials you need to prove your case and hold the right person accountable.
As the plaintiff in a lawsuit, you’ll need to prove:
- That the business owner was aware of the dangerous condition and failed to take preventive measures
- That you were not aware of the hazard or how serious it was
- That you exercised caution, but still slipped and fell because there was no information available to warn you of the hazard
Premises liability extends beyond slip and fall accidents and covers many situations where someone is injured on the premises of another person or entity.
“Attorney Green took the time to sit down and explain the whole process, as this was my first experience with using an attorney and my paralegal Sommer was AMAZING! She was so personable. Answered my incessant questions and was always timely in her responses. I cannot sing their praises enough. Thank you for everything.”
-Kellie Morrison, client

Premises liability plaintiffs may include:
Invitees. When someone who has been invited onto the premises and is there with the landowner’s express or implied permission, they may sue if they are injured. This includes store customers, building contractors, service technicians and other business-related visitors to the property.
Licensees. People who enter the property for their own purposes, like salespeople and social guests.
Trespassers. Someone who does not have a landowner’s express or implied permission may still sue in the state of Florida if there is a clear failure to warn people, especially children, of known hazards like an open quarry or mine where someone could easily slip and fall.
