I stepped into what eventually determined as melted ice cream. Did not fall but leg twisted and reinjured knee which eventually turned into 7 months therapy, eventually knee surgergy and removal of loose piece of bone. Also had to cancel 55 wedding anniversary scheduled out of town. Attorney now says 2 years later that the manager says they had just check the area. There were overhead camera which he says they have no tape and no sheets to show floor checks. This is a Drug Store which sells ice cream in the front of the store. I contend they should have some procedures in place because this could happen frequently. My attorney didn't want to dispose the two men involved. He is discouraging me from going to trial. I am 74 years old and retired and have a lot of medical history. However, Iwalked into the store, but was carried out on a stretcher and ambulance to the hospital. The key question seems to be "reasonable time" for cleanup. This has been ongoing for two years. I have be disposed and they made an offer of $10,000 which included my medical bills. They are approximately 7k by using my medicare and secondary insurance. This means $7K for the bills, 40% to the lawyer and nothing for my pain and suffering for over a year. Any comments

Yes, see my sig



1) Discuss with your attorney or



2) Get another attorney.... but be prepared to still pay this one and also pay the next one.



I'm not sure what you are looking for. You have legal counsel that is far more familiar with the case then anyone else.

i had stripped and waxed a floor for one of my accounts which i have been doing for a number of years and NEVER encountered any type of slipage due to any of my floor refinishings. Two days later someone slips and falls, inuring themselves. They are claiming neglagence on my part. If that doesn't sound crazy enough the same victim tried to sue me before for the same accident and the case was droped. Now I can't afford an attorney and I could use some guidence as to what to do for my situation.

If this is an actual suit I'm guessing the store was named as well.



If you have insurance, report the claim to them (or let them know about this suit). If you have no insurance then you will need to provide your own defense. I'd highly recommend hiring an attorney. You don't want to go into default.

See... you did not even need to open the phone book to find an injury attorney to find your case. Being in PA, I'm surprised it even took that long.

I was asked by my husbands aunt if I would clean her carpet. After cleaning the carpet and empting the dirty container, I refilled the cleaning solution and as I walked to the room that I was cleaning, I slipped on the floor (there was some water - that I didnt see on the floor). I had alot of pain in my tail bone, and hip - I laid on the floor for about 10 minutes until I could get up with some help. A year later I find out that I have herniated 2 disc in my back, which the doctor said came from a hard fall or a direct blow to my tail bone area. I also have injuried my SI joint. Is the homeowner responsible for my injury since she asked me to clean the carpet - or is it my responsibility since I was the one that was refilling the carpet cleaner?

The short of it is that you are responsible as slipping on water you spilled is not something the home owner caused. You don't want to hear my long version of why you are 100% at fault and have no valid complaint whatsoever.

Generally, a property owner in Florid owes a duty to warn of latent or concealed dangers which are or should be known to the owner and which are unknown to the invitee and cannot be discovered through the exercise of due care. Dampier v. Morgan Tire & Auto, LLC, 82 So. 3d 204, 206 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App. 2012). This means simply that a property owner is not responsible for injuries unless that property owner had reason to foresee the harm that might occur and failed to take any action to prevent it. In your circumstances, unless the property owner knew about the wet flooring (and you did not have reason to know about it) the homeowner would not generally be deemed responsible for your injuries.
