Do You Have The Right To Seek Compensation?
Determining your rights is one of the first steps to getting what you're owed. Under Florida law, you have to show that two factors existed in relation to your accident.
It must be shown that a property owner knew about or should have been aware of a dangerous condition on their property.
It must also be shown that despite their knowledge, the property owner didn't repair the problem or place a warning to those on the premises about the dangers.
Florida does have laws that require property owners keep their premises free from dangerous factors - especially those that can attract children and cause them harm such as pools, trampolines, or abandoned equipment or appliances.
If any of these factors were involved in your accident, you may have the right to seek financial compensation through a premises liability case.

Standing Up For You One of the biggest challenges for those injured in an accident is that they just don’t have the resources, money, or experience that large corporations, rich property owners, and insurance companies will have on their side. Because of this, it's common for those injured in an accident to struggle to get any kind of compensation at all.
Even worse, when they do finally get compensation, it's often far less than what is actually fair. Settlement amounts should cover all of your medical costs, lost wages due to time missed from work, and any future potential costs. The idea of a settlement is to help the victim get back to where they would have been if the accident had never occurred.
Large, powerful legal teams on the other side can make that difficult by doing things like:
- Stalling payments
- Refusing payments
- Forcing you through unnecessary red tape
- Offering settlements that are less than you deserve
