Fort Lauderdale Slip & Fall Attorneys
We Have Recovered Tens of Millions in Compensation
One of the most types of accidents is a slip and fall. Often, slip and fall accidents can result in serious, lasting injuries. When you or a loved one is hurt, our slip and fall lawyers in Fort Lauderdale are here to help you fight for fair compensation. While these accidents occur often, successfully pursuing a case requires a high level of legal skill and access to numerous resources. With over 50 years of combined experience, we have a track record of success, having recovered tens of millions of dollars in financial damages for our clients.
How Long Do I Have to File a Slip & Fall Claim in Florida?
Florida law dictates that you must bring your claim within four years of the date of the accident. This is known as the statute of limitations. If you do not file your claim within this time period, you will almost undoubtedly be barred from recovering compensation.
It is imperative to speak with an injury attorney as soon as possible. This gives your legal team time to compile the necessary evidence to recover the maximum allowed compensation for your claim. While you have four years to file, the longer you wait, the more evidence is lost and memories fade. Speak to a Fort Lauderdale slip and fall lawyer sooner rather than later in order to maximize your chances of a favorable outcome.
Types of Cases We Handle
At the Law Offices of John D. Ameen, P.A., we take on slip and fall cases involving:
- Improper lighting
- Failure to maintain stairs and railings
- Objects left on the ground
- Raised carpeting
- Safety violations
- Slippery floors
- Uneven pavement
This is not an exhaustive list of types of cases we accept. If your slip and fall accident was the result of any type of dangerous property conditions or a defective product, our attorneys can help you seek the fair recovery you are owed.
Proving Negligence in Your Slip & Fall Claim
Our attorneys are skilled in premises liability law, including slip and fall cases. We have the necessary experience to consult with investigators, interview witnesses, and review medical records to build a strong case.
We can help prove that:
- The dangerous condition was not apparent
- You had permission to be on the property
- You could reasonably expect safety on the property
- You were wearing appropriate footwear
- The property owner should have known about the unsafe condition
- The property owner did not fix, address, or warn you of the unsafe condition
Insurance companies and property owners will usually try to minimize the amount they must pay by shifting the blame onto you. Our Fort Lauderdale slip and fall lawyers have experience with these types of tactics and can create a solid case to strengthen your injury claim.
