Slip & Fall Accidents

Your Attorney Today, Tomorrow, & For Life

Orlando Slip and Fall Injury Attorney


Movies, television, streaming video… they all portray “slip and fall” victims as gamers out for an easy payday. But if you or someone you love is looking for slip-and-fall accident lawyer, you know all too well that that your injuries are 100% real. In many cases, so is the property owner’s duty to compensate you for your injuries.

So why do so many slip-and-fall victims – good, hardworking people just like you – end up paying for their injuries out of their own pockets? Most of the time, it’s because they feel embarrassed. They tell themselves they should have been paying more attention. They don’t want to be seen as a “scammer.” And they figure that asking to be paid for their injuries just wouldn’t be the right thing to do.

What is a Slip and Fall?

A slip and fall refers to an incident where an individual slips, trips, or stumbles on a surface and consequently falls, leading to an injury. These incidents typically occur due to hazardous conditions such as wet or slippery floors, uneven surfaces, poor lighting, loose rugs or mats, or obstacles left in walkways. 

Slip and fall cases are a common type of personal injury claim, often falling under premises liability law. In such cases, the injured party may seek compensation from the property owner or manager if it can be demonstrated that the hazardous condition was due to their negligence and that they failed to take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of the premises. 

What is Premises Liability Law?

Premises liability law is a legal doctrine that holds property owners and occupiers responsible for accidents and injuries that occur on their property due to unsafe conditions. This area of law is based on the principle that property owners must maintain a reasonably safe environment for visitors and tenants.

Key elements of premises liability law include:

  • Duty of Care: Property owners have a duty to ensure that their premises are safe for visitors. The level of care required can vary depending on the type of visitor (invitees, licensees, or trespassers).
  • Breach of Duty: To establish liability, it must be shown that the property owner breached this duty of care by failing to address or warn about hazardous conditions.
  • Causation: There must be a direct link between the breach of duty and the injury suffered by the visitor. The hazardous condition must be the cause of the accident and subsequent injury.
  • Damages: The injured party must have suffered actual damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, or pain and suffering, as a result of the accident.

Common scenarios involving premises liability include slip and fall accidents, inadequate maintenance, building code violations, insufficient security, and animal attacks. The specific rules and standards can vary by jurisdiction, and different states may have varying statutes and case law governing premises liability claims.

You Deserve More From Your Orlando Slip and Fall Lawyer.

Seeking compensation isn’t about punishing anybody or trying to take advantage of a property owner. It’s about putting your life back together again. Getting you to where you would have been if the accident had never happened. Taking a financial burden off your shoulders that you never asked for.

Not many Orlando personal injury lawyers are going to stand up for you every step of the way. I’m Modoline Altenor, PA your slip and fall attorney here in Orlando. I work with Florida residents to help them get paid what they deserve for their injuries. You’ll find that I’m a little different. I see myself as part of a community, and that means taking care of my fellow Floridians.

I’m not focused on billing more hours. I’m focused on giving you the attention you deserve and using every opportunity to build and present a solid case. That’s what helped me recover over $1 million for clients in just my first few months of private practice.

Now, I’d like to chat with you to see if you are eligible for slip and fall compensation (and if so, how much)! My consultations are FREE with NO strings attached.

“But isn’t hiring a slip and fall attorney expensive?”

It depends. There are plenty of attorneys in the Orlando area who will tell you that you have an air-tight case, then charge you a retainer and ongoing fees.

The problem is that, when you hand a personal injury attorney your hard-earned money up front, the incentive to get you the maximum compensation is gone.

Sure, attorneys have to make a living too. If they’re doing things right, though, they should be compensated only when they get you your money.

I only take cases I’m confident I can win, because I refuse to accept any money until I’ve gotten you paid.

That means, if we decide together than hiring me is the right move, you can breathe a sigh of relief afterward.
I’ll be there to do all the “heavy lifting” so you can focus on recovering.

Let’s Get You The Slip and Fall Answers You Need.

Why keep wondering if you should seek compensation for your slip-and-fall injuries?

Fill out the form above or call to contact me today, and we’ll set up a convenient time to discuss your case.

And if we agree that working with me is the right move for you, I’ll outline the next steps.

But don’t bring your credit cards or checkbook. You won’t need them until you’re awarded fair compensation for your injuries.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to help you get your life back.
