Understanding The Premises Liability Law In Florida
The problem most people- including some attorneys and judges- encounter when it comes to Florida liability law is that the rules aren’t very clear.
As a seasoned attorney, it’s my job to help guide you through the steps you need to take to make sure you are able to use Premises Liability Law in Florida to receive the compensation you deserve after you’ve been injured while on someone else’s property.
Florida’s liability law is designed to protect you if you’re injured while on someone else’s property, and if you were injured due to the property owner’s negligence.
Since insurance companies are in the business of making money and resist having to pay claims, they’ll often argue whether or not they have to pay your medical expenses and for your pain and suffering. When the insurance company balks, you need an attorney who will look at your claim and medical expenses, and help you use Florida liability law to obtain the compensation you deserve.
One of the first things I’ll help you prove is that you had permission to be on the property. Since property owners have a responsibility to keep their guests safe– which includes making sure the property is as safe as it can be– and doing everything possible to minimize the chances of you falling or getting bit by their dog.
Once neglect has been proven, the next thing we deal with is the extent of the injury you sustained. This is more complicated than simply presenting the court with a copy of your medical bills. With my help, you’ll get reimbursed for:
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Long term health complications that were triggered by the accident.
