We make them pay so you can focus on your physical healing, not your financial stability.
Can You Seek Compensation?
Florida laws allow those injured in an accident on the property of someone else to seek financial compensation for their injuries if they can show that the person responsible for a property acted in a negligent way and that those actions are what led to their injuries.
This can mean a lot, but in a slip and fall case, it's much harder to show that restitution is owed since you have to prove that the other party actually knew about or should have known about the safety issue that caused your accident and chose to do nothing about it.
For example, if you were injured due to a spill in the aisle of a grocery store, you must be able to show that the manager of the property actually knew about the spill and willfully chose not to clean it up or to place warning signs up until it could be cleaned. If the manager or property owner was unaware of the issue and had no real way to know about it, they can't be held liable.
What Are You Owed?
Your personal injury settlement should be enough to cover your expenses related to your accident. However, it should go further and help you be able to return to a point that you would have been at had your accident never happened. Because of this, a settlement should include things like:
- Lost wages
- Future potential lost wages
- Medical bills
- Future potential medical bills
- Pain and suffering compensation
- Punitive damages
- And more
