Trip and Fall/Slip and Fall
Trips and slips are among the leading causes of physical injuries for seniors living in The Villages® and Central Florida’s other retirement communities.

Located in The Villages®, we handle cases involving premises liability incidents anywhere in Central Florida. Founding attorney Tim Babiarz has over 20 years’ experience helping accident victims secure just compensation, and each member of our hand-picked legal team is devoted to maximizing our clients’ chances of recovery.
Your Rights After a Trip-and-Fall or Slip-and-Fall Incident
If you have been injured in a trip-and-fall or slip-and-fall incident, what are your rights? First and most importantly, you have the right to see your own doctor. If you are contacted by the property owner’s insurance company, do not let the adjuster talk you into seeing their physician.
Second, you have the right to receive full and fair compensation for all of your injury-related losses. This includes past and future medical bills, pain and suffering; and other legally-recognized forms of loss.
Third, you have the right to experienced legal representation. An experienced, local attorney will be able to calculate your losses, protect you against the insurance companies; and take any legal action necessary to help ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
