Let Our Lake City Premises Liability Lawyer Build a Compelling Case for Compensation

When victims call us about their premises liability injuries, they are often unsure about what type of case they have or if they have a viable case at all. This is where our knowledgeable team comes in. Our personal injury attorneys in Lake City can assess these cases and determine who might be liable, whether the victim has a strong case, and what needs to happen to get justice.

We handle all types of premises liability cases, including:

  • Slip and falls
  • Trip and fall injuries
  • Stair falls
  • Falls from elevated heights
  • Dog bites
  • Negligent security incidents
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Diving incidents
  • Fires, smoke injuries, and toxic chemicals exposure
  • Construction site accidents

In all these incidents, the property owner (or in some cases, the tenant) is responsible for keeping customers, guests, and other visitors safe from preventable hazards. If they fail to do so, they may be legally liable for injuries that occur.

We must develop a compelling case for negligence and liability. To this end, we need to document:

  • They manage the property.
  • They owed our client a duty of care.
  • They knew or should have known about the dangerous condition.
  • The hazard caused our client’s accident.
  • Our client suffered damages (e.g., physical, financial, and/or emotional harm).

The steps we often take to build a premises liability case to support our client’s insurance claim or lawsuit include:

  • Interviewing eyewitnesses
  • Obtaining the incident report and medical records
  • Seeking video of the incident
  • Conducting a scene survey
  • Hiring expert witnesses, including medical professionals and economists
  • Collecting any relevant physical evidence
  • Documenting the hazard
  • Researching related complaints
  • Gathering documentation of damages

Once we have the necessary evidence, it is time to deploy a legal strategy to either negotiate a settlement or litigate the case. Many of these cases settle without going to trial. However, we will file a personal injury lawsuit in the appropriate civil court and prepare the case for trial if necessary.

We generally have up to two years to sue under Fla. Stat. § 95.11. However, we like to get started investigating these incidents as soon as possible after they occur. Hiring us when your injuries are stable enough to make the call could benefit your case. We will immediately step in to handle all communication with the insurance carriers, protect your rights, and begin gathering time-sensitive evidence.
