Recent changes in legislation have had an adverse effect on the rights of slip and fall victims. Hence, hiring an experienced attorney is crucial for securing a fair judgement in slip and fall cases.
At Miami Legal Firm, we have the required skill and knowledge to successfully file a claim for slip and fall accidents. We have the necessary resources to address any challenges as our attorney has led many successful settlement cases.
In a slip and fall case, the attorney has to prove that the victim was injured due to a dangerous condition, which was neglected by the property owner. The condition must be identified as a potential threat to those on the property and a condition that cannot be anticipated by a reasonable person. The second condition is important, as people are required to avoid noticeable hazards.
You can file a claim to compensate for the following:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses
- Loss of wages
- Loss of benefits
- Punitive damages
- General damages
To prove that the property owner knew of the dangerous condition, your attorney will have to show the following:
- The property owner created the dangerous condition;
- The property owner knew of the condition and was negligent in failing to correct it; or
- The condition existed for a long enough period of time that a reasonable property owner should have discovered and corrected it before the accident.
