After a Hialeah Premises Liability Injury

Have you been injured in a premises liability accident you suspect occurred because a property owner neglected this responsibility? If so, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and more. Review your case with a Hialeah premises liability attorney at Elstein Legal to discuss your options.

Hialeah Premises Liability Cases: What You Need to Know

Florida’s premises liability statute encompasses several laws designed to protect legally-permitted guests on others’ properties. However, these laws do not guarantee entitled compensation every time an injury accident occurs on a property other than your own. 

One of Florida’s relevant laws regarding slip and fall accidents on “transitory substances” states: “If a person slips and falls on a transitory foreign substance in a business establishment, the injured person must prove that the business establishment had actual or constructive knowledge of the dangerous condition and should have taken action to remedy it.”

In other words, if you were injured after slipping on such a substance at a grocery store, to prove you’re entitled to compensation, you would need to present a strong argument indicating that by the time your accident occurred, an employee or manager should have become aware of the spill, and should have cleaned it up accordingly. If you can’t do so, the negligent party’s insurer or premises liability lawyer may argue there wasn’t enough time for anyone to clean up the spill before you slipped. Thus, you’re not entitled to compensation.

That’s why it helps to coordinate with a personal injury law firm in Hialeah. A premises liability law firm in Hialeah will have the resources and talented staff necessary to help you prove your accident resulted from negligence.

Premises Liability Cases in Hialeah: Examples to Consider

Other examples of accidents that may justify filing a claim or lawsuit against a negligent property owner include (but are not limited to):

  • A slip and fall accident resulting from inadequate outdoor lighting making it impossible to see an obstruction in a business’ parking lot at night.
  • A slip and fall on a wet floor that didn’t have a caution sign on it. 
  • Tripping over broken or loose flooring that should have been replaced.
  • Tripping over an item on the floor that should have been removed.

Just remember, an insurer will typically offer less compensation than you’re entitled to when you file a claim. Your chances of reaching a fair settlement are much greater if you hire a Hialeah premises liability lawyer to represent you.
