Slip, Trip or Fall

St. Petersburg, FL Slip and Fall Attorneys

A “slip and fall” is the most common form of a premises liability accident. This type of accident occurs when a hazardous condition, such as an uneven or poorly lit walkway, causes a person to lose his or her footing and fall.

Slip and fall injuries often result in back problems, spinal injury and broken or fractured bones.

At Whittel & Melton, we are committed to helping slip and fall victims in Pinellas County recover for their injuries.

The whole staff at Whittel & Melton was nice and always ready to help. However, I worked mostly with Jason. He demonstrated that he understood what to expect with our case and better that he cared about what was happening. I was very pleased with the outcome of our case. G.S.
