Todd Miner Law helps clients understand
premises liability laws in Florida. There is often the mistaken belief that falling and getting
injured on someone else’s property automatically guarantees a monetary
settlement from the property owner. A lot more is involved in a premises
liability claim than that.
Establishing the Definition of Premises Liability
The first basic element of any premises liability claim is asking the right
questions. Which premises were involved and who owned the property at
the time of the accident need to be established before proceeding. Those
questions will be asked by an attorney before he or she decides to accept a case.
It is Important to Seek Medical Attention for a Premises Liability Case
One of the first questions an Orlando accident attorney will ask a plaintiff
is whether or not he or she sought medical help after suffering an injury
on someone else’s property. By seeking the help of a medical professional
with a valid complaint, you will be creating a record of your injury,
and that documentation can be used in court to help you win a case.
A Hospital Bill will Establish Medical Costs and Detail the Injuries
By seeing a physician immediately after an injury, you will be documenting
the extent of your injuries and the amount of pain you suffered. You will
also be establishing any future medical costs that you may have to incur.
This information will be invaluable in a court of law, and aids with proof
of the injury you sustained.
You Have to Prove Negligence to Win a Premises Liability Case
A final necessary step in order for you to win a premises liability case
is that your Orlando injury lawyer will have to prove negligence on the
part of the property owner. There must be some defect or damage on the
property that the owner knew about but failed to correct, and that the
particular defect or damage is what caused your injuries.
