Like most locations in Florida, Englewood has plenty to offer residents. But an accident can quickly turn a day out into a nightmare that impacts your life for months or even years to come. If you're injured in a slip and fall accident - what is commonly known as a premises liability accident - you may have the right to file an Englewood slip and fall lawsuit and seek financial compensation for your injuries.
Our lawyers will stand up to big property owners and their legal teams to get you what you deserve. We fight for the injured, not the powerful.
Fault In A Premises Liability Case
As with any other type of accident, Florida residents have the right to seek compensation for a slip or fall if they can show that their accident was a direct result of the negligent or reckless actions of a property owner or manager.
However, it can be more difficult to show that negligence existed in a premises liability case. This is because you have to show that the person responsible for the property knew or should have known about a safety issue and that they willfully ignored the issue entirely.
For instance, if a safety issue exists, your Englewood premises liability attorney has to show that the property manager knew about it and decided not to do anything. If they had no way of knowing about the safety issue or didn't know about it, they can't be held liable for the injuries caused by it.
How Will Your Attorney Show That You Deserve Compensation?
In order to prove negligence or recklessness existed in your case, our attorneys will use a variety of different tools and resources to show that the property owner is at fault. Some examples include:
- Security camera footage
- Witness statements
- Accident reports
- History of complaints or issues at the property
- Medical records
- And more
Our legal team has decades of experience and numerous resources that we'll use to show that your accident was indeed caused by negligence or recklessness, and in doing so we'll fight to get you the compensation that you deserve.
What Damages Are You Owed?
An accident can have a tremendous impact on your life, physically as well as financially. Each accident is different, but several types of damages may have an influence on the settlement you receive. Here's a look at some of the main factors influencing a settlement in a premises liability case.
- Medical costs
- Future potential medical costs
- Lost wages
- Future potential lost wages
- Compensation for pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
Our attorneys work with several experts in economics and the medical world. We review your case and then consult to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve instead of a lowball offer that doesn't cover all of your expenses.
Fighting The Big Companies
Along with the challenges of proving fault in a slip and fall case, victims may struggle to get what they're owed due to the fact that often, they are trying to get restitution from a big property owner or corporation. These entities have big budgets and major legal teams on their side which they'll use to bully the victims around and make it harder to get compensated for your injuries.
That's why it's so important to have our legal team on your side. Our lawyers have a reputation for standing up to the big corporations and property owners and fighting for the little guys. When you have our attorneys fighting for you, you immediately get the respect of the other side, and they stop tactics like stalling or offering you settlements that aren't fair for your injuries.
