When visiting a store or another business, you expect to be met with respect and basic safety standards. When this doesn’t happen and you’re injured on private property, you may be entitled to compensation.
In Miami Beach, a premise liability accident needs to be handled differently than in other states. Due to the Florida Statute for premises liability, one must determine that a business was aware of the alleged dangers and did nothing to fix them. In many circumstances, this can be difficult to prove without the help of a qualified attorney.
To get the help and pursue the compensation you may be entitled to, contact a personal injury lawyer in Miami Beach from Elstein Legal. Our team can help you identify and pursue potential damages.
What Does a Premises Liability Lawyer Do?
A premises liability lawyer fights to ensure that you have a chance at proper compensation that you may qualify for after a fall. Although you may wish to go it alone, the legal system is littered with obstacles. For example, if you are missing work (or will miss work in the future), our team can fight for the wages you may miss out on as a result. Additionally, it may also be worth pursuing non-financial damages such as pain or suffering.
By analyzing the facts, a Miami Beach premises liability lawyer from Elstein Legal will determine the best course of action for your case. Even a seemingly simple and straightforward case may have legal complications—like filing an insurance claim to receive full compensation. A lawyer can help you navigate the treacherous legal landscape and help you grow to understand it.
Injuries from a Premises Liability Accident in Miami Beach
Falls can be so common that it’s easy to forget that they can have severe results. In worst case scenarios, falls can lead to brain injuries or even death. After a fall, it’s essential to make sure to seek medical attention immediately. From there, you can then explore your legal options with a Miami Beach premises liability attorney.
Since injuries from a fall can be so serious and potentially complicated, it is crucial to get the financial compensation you need. Insurance companies may try to give you less than what you need if you don’t have a lawyer on your side.
For example, let’s imagine that the court determines you are 80% responsible in a premises liability incident. The state of Florida operates under the law of Comparative Negligence. This means that, although you were 80% to blame for the incident, you may still be entitled to 20% of the damages in question.
