Several years ago, everything in my life was perfect. I had recently gotten married to the man of my dreams, I had a baby on the way and we had just purchased a beautiful new home in Tampa FL. My career was going well, and the future looked nothing but bright. Sadly, all of that changed one Saturday afternoon when I suffered a serious accident while shopping in a local Tampa mall.
As I perused the aisles of our favorite big box retailer here in Tampa, my feet suddenly came out from under me, sending me crashing onto the hard concrete floor. Not only did I feel searing pain in my left leg, I had also hit my head on the way down. I was disoriented and afraid.
It soon became clear that my injuries were going to keep me away from work for an extended period of time, and we definitely needed my income to survive. Fortunately, I made the decision to consult with a Tampa personal injury attorney so that I could explore my legal options. It seemed to me that the mall should not be allowed to get away with the negligent way in which it failed to maintain its walkways.
