What should I do if I was hurt in Florida after I slipped and fell leaving a restaurant? 3 Answers as of February 17, 2012I slipped and fell on wet floor between front door and the entrance of a restaurant in Tampa. I have gone to urgent care and the doctor told me my left leg is broken and I am getting x-rays done. My wrist is also in great pain too and needs x-rays as well. It was rainy, but there was no slippery floor sign and several other people fell in the same spot that I did. It happened on March 15. Can I do something?

This is known as a premises liability claim. You may have a claim against the store for negligence. If you prove that the store was negligent, then you may recover damages for medical bills, unpaid wages, and pain and suffering. You should consult with a lawyer. Premises liability claims can be difficult to litigate and most stores defend them vigorously.
