Do You Have The Right To Compensation?
Seeking financial compensation is possible if you can show that you were injured in an accident that was caused by or that could have been prevented if not for the reckless or negligent actions of someone else.
This is more difficult to show in a premises liability case than an auto accident, largely because the burden of proof is more complex. Specifically, your Venice slip and fall attorney must show that the property manager or owner knew about a safety issue and willfully ignored it.
For example, if a loose handrail led to your injuries, you must show that the person responsible for the property knew about or should have known about that handrail problem and that they didn't fix it or post a warning concerning it. If they had no way of knowing about the issue, they can't be shown to have been negligent or reckless.
Our attorneys work hard to show that you do indeed deserve compensation and have decades of experience in premises liability cases. Some of the ways that we work to show that the other party is at fault include the following:
- Security camera footage
- Witness statements
- Accident reports from police or emergency workers
- History of claims related to the property
- Medical witnesses
It can be difficult showing that fault lies with a property owner, but our team's skills and resources will ensure that if you're owed compensation, that you get it. We have decades of experience in the field, and we will fight to make sure you get what you deserve.
What Damages Can You Collect?
Florida law allows those injured due to the reckless or negligent actions of someone else to receive compensation for their injuries. These damages can include a wide range of different things including the following:
- Medical bills
- Future medical bills
- Lost wages
- Future potential lost wages
- Compensation for pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
To ensure that you get what you're really owed, our team works with economic and medical professionals to reach a clear picture of the extent of your damages and the extent of impact that they will have on your finances throughout the future. This ensures that even if your recovery goes on for years past your settlement date, you don't have to struggle to pay for it. We don't just make them pay, we make them pay an amount that matters to you.
Standing Up For You One of the biggest challenges in a Venice slip and fall personal injury case is that the property owners in the area have deep pockets and plenty of resources. This means that they will often use tactics to prevent you from getting the compensation you deserve, including things like:
- Stall tactics
- Unneeded red tape or documentation
- Refusal to pay
- Offering settlements that are lower than you really deserve
Our legal team has a reputation in the area for being aggressive and not backing down from these tactics. We don't let the other side's legal team or insurance companies push you around, and we also make sure that we take the time to prove that you deserve compensation. Your injuries have already made your life harder.
