Can you Sue your Apartment Complex for Slip and Fall?
The landlord or property manager may try to argue that the accident was somehow your fault, or that they did not have actual or constructive knowledge of the hazard. Our injury lawyers can help you gather the evidence needed to prove negligence and if we are unable to secure a fair settlement, we are not afraid to take your case to trial.
It is important that you start the claims process as soon as possible because over time, important evidence may become unavailable. Also, there are steps you must take early in the claims process to give your case the most favorable chance of success. Our Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorneys can guide you through every stage of filing your claim and help you avoid costly mistakes. Call us today at (954) 500-4878 for a free consultation.
Why Is It Important to Hire an Injury Attorney to Help with Premises Liability Claims?
The laws that govern premises liability claims in Florida are complex, and one small oversight could be all it takes to compromise your case. The personal injury attorneys at Englander Peebles can help you avoid mistakes like accepting a settlement too early, overlooking future damages or non-economic damages, or missing important deadlines.
Even if it seems obvious that your injuries were caused by the negligence of your landlord or property manager, you will need evidence to show that the liable party had constructive knowledge or actual knowledge of the dangerous condition that caused your injuries and should have fixed it. Proving this may require surveillance footage, eyewitness testimony, records of past complaints about similar issues, and/or photos of the hazard that caused your injuries.
A Fort Lauderdale slip and fall lawyer from Englander Peebles can gather this evidence so you can focus on your recovery.
Finally, the opposing party is more likely to take your claim seriously if you hire an attorney. Our lawyers can handle settlement negotiations on your behalf and, if necessary, we have the courtroom experience to take your case to trial.
