Boynton Beach Trip and Fall Attorneys
Contrary to what most people think, trip and fall cases are easier to win than slip and fall cases. Here’s why. If a person trips and falls over an uneven surface or a tripping hazard, the business must explain why it failed to warn customers about this danger.
Expert Testimony Regarding Dangerous Tripping Hazards in Commercial Businesses
In many cases, our Boynton trip and fall attorneys retain the use of professional expert witnesses to opine on the condition of the tripping hazard. For example, did you know that if a business violates code, this can be evidence of negligence?
