Recovering Compensation in Slip and Fall Accidents
Whether they oversee private or commercial property, all property owners must keep their premises safe for guests. This includes sealing off hazardous areas, warning you about specific conditions, and addressing dangers in a timely manner. The property owner could bear liability for your losses by failing to take these actions.
We want to make the financial recovery process as easy as possible. This starts with understanding that:
Florida Law Limits Your Time to Take Legal Action
The state of Florida imposes filing deadlines for cases. You generally have four years to file your lawsuit, per Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a).
Matters change if you’re filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Here, per Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d), you typically have two years to file. Filing your case on time is crucial. If you don’t file within the allotted time, you risk losing the right to seek damages.
It Costs Nothing Out of Pocket to Hire Our Law Firm
Our law office works on a contingency-fee basis. As a result, our clients pay nothing upfront or out of pocket for our representation.
Our payment comes from a portion of your settlement or court award. You don’t pay anything unless we secure compensation for your losses.

- Past and future healthcare expenses
- Lost employment-related losses, including tips, wages, and bonuses
- Diminished future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering and inconvenience
- Scarring and disfigurement

What Our Lawyer for Slip and Fall Accidents Can do for You
We are prepared to do everything your slip and fall case needs, including:
Investigating the Cause
To pursue an insurance claim, we must have evidence to support it. Supporting information can include:
- The accident report
- Security camera footage
- Eyewitness testimony
- Your medical treatment records
- Statements from your healthcare team
Sometimes, hazardous properties hurt multiple people. We can review the premises’ history and see if other similar accidents have happened.
Reviewing the Insurance Policy
Many homeowners and business owners carry liability insurance. While we calculate your losses, we will determine what the policy entitles you. This helps us negotiate with the insurance provider.
Filing Your Insurance Claim
Filing an insurance claim is more than filing paperwork; it’s about supplying the insurance company with information, communicating with claims adjusters, and advocating for your needs.
This can get complicated while you are recovering from serious injuries. So let our slip and fall attorneys handle your claim and all it entails.
Filing Your Civil Lawsuit
We resolve many of our slip and fall injury cases through insurance claims. However, we are always ready to go to court. To advance your lawsuit, we will:
- Use evidence to support your case
- File your lawsuit within the appropriate period
- Fill out your lawsuit’s necessary paperwork
- Present your damages’ cost
- Interview experts and eyewitnesses on the stand
- Protect you from unfair courtroom proceedings
