What Types of Cases Do Our Plantation Premises Liability Attorneys Handle?
Florida premises liability laws address negligence and compensation issues surrounding injury claims from injuries that occur on someone else’s property. Proving negligence is a critical step in fighting for compensation for injuries under Florida law. However, the law is flexible enough to address many different situations and legal issues.
Our Plantation premises liability lawyer at Rosenberg Law Firm represents the following types of cases:
- Dog bites and attacks
- Swimming pool accidents
- Malfunctioning stairs, escalators, and elevators
- Fire or electrocution injuries
- Amusement park accidents
- Negligent security
- Food poisoning
- Slip and fall accidents
- And more
Generally, the individual who lawfully occupies or controls the property is liable for your injuries. If the property has been abandoned, the person who last occupied it may be responsible. Our legal team will investigate all involved parties and file a claim against their insurer to get you the money you deserve.
Florida’s Comparative Negligence Rules Affect Your Claim
Comparative negligence is a crucial element in a claim for premises liability. Although the property owner may have been negligent in maintaining a safe environment for visitors, they may allege that you are partially to blame. This situation can affect the outcome of your claim or civil court lawsuit.
Our Plantation premises liability lawyer has overcome their objections to help injury victims file an award that pays for:
- Medical expenses (current and future)
- Lost wages and benefits (current and future)
- Physical pain and suffering (for severe injuries and wrongful death)
- Punitive damages (for gross acts of negligence)
- Wrongful death awards (for surviving family)
- And more
Florida utilizes a pure comparative fault system, meaning that you can file a claim, even if you were liable to a specific degree. However, the degree of fault by the opposing party determines how much compensation you receive. For example, suppose an investigation reveals that the other driver was 80 percent at fault. In that case, they owe you 80 percent of the total assessed damages.
The Plantation premises liability lawyer at our firm will ensure that you do not take an unfair share of the blame for an accident someone else caused. Our legal team has the experience and investigatory resources necessary to hold them and their insurers accountable under federal, state, and local laws.
