After you’re injured on property, you feel alone. Especially relevant is your pain, discomfort, and mounting bills. Moreover, store management or insurance companies don’t respond or avoid you. I’m an experienced Fort Myers premises liability attorney, and when you hire me, they’ll listen.
Fort Myers Premises Liability Attorney Addresses Fault
In Florida, property owners and managers are not automatically liable for your injuries. Accordingly, while many people believe malls, grocery stores, retail stores, supermarkets, must pay, there’s more to it.
Instead, you must prove fault first. Accordingly, as your Fort Myers premises liability attorney, liability review begins immediately. Most noteworthy, Florida law requires we prove whoever owns or controls property was negligent.
Accordingly, as your Fort Myers premises liability attorney I work to show a property owner or manager—including through employees—failed you. For example, a business created a dangerous condition. Another way is proving they did not inspect, correct, or warn you about a hazardous condition.
Fort Myers Premises Liability Attorney Addresses Obligations
Property owners must keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition. Moreover, they must timely and properly warn you about defects. However, you must prove they didn’t. By proving this, you are showing their fault.
How do we prove fault? As your Fort Myers premises liability attorney, I use facts showing an owner, manager, or employee actually knew, should have known through reasonable inspection, about hazards causing your injuries. Moreover, we use video or witness testimony to provide these facts.
Once we prove fault, then a business owner is liable. Therefore, a liable business owes your related medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Furthermore, as an Fort Myers premises liability attorney, I negotiate your claim with a liable owner’s insurance company.
Fort Myers Premises Liability Attorney Knows All Defenses
Even after you hire me as your Fort Myers premises liability attorney, an insurance company won’t automatically pay compensation. Instead, insurance adjusters often defend theses claims. Moreover, a common defense is you’re partially or completely at fault.
Here are some common defense examples:
- You weren’t paying attention
- No one knew about hazard
- Danger was open and obvious
This defense is not accidental. Rather, every defendant wants you responsible in some way. Why? Because, if a jury decides you’re partially at fault, then your damages are reduced.
