Our Legal Team Offers Comprehensive Legal Services to Injured Newberry Residents
Suffering a slip and fall accident can be a bewildering and overwhelming experience. Our Newberry slip and fall attorneys pursue fair compensation by:
Evaluating Liability and Gathering Evidence
When you hire our slip and fall lawyers, we start your case by evaluating who is responsible for your injuries. This involves gathering evidence, requiring us to:
- Review surveillance footage of the accident
- Collect witness statements
- Get the police report/accident report
- Check the property’s maintenance logs (if applicable)
Our approach ensures that we have adequate evidence to support your personal injury claim.
Dealing With Insurance Companies
Dealing with insurance claims can be complicated, but you don’t have to worry about such matters with our Newberry slip and fall attorneys. We can communicate and negotiate with insurance companies for you. This prevents the insurer from taking advantage of you or otherwise jeopardizing your right to damages.
Filing Your Personal Injury Lawsuit
We resolve most slip and fall injury cases without filing a lawsuit. That’s because our negotiators understand how to reach fair settlements with insurance companies. Still, if there are issues regarding fault and liability, our team may bring your case to court and ask a judge to award damages.
One major thing about filing a lawsuit is that you must comply with the state’s statute of limitations. In Florida, you have two years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit. Missing this deadline could result in losing your right to seek compensation. The sooner you connect with our team, the sooner we can put your case in motion.
We Prove That Negligence Led to Your Newberry Slip and Fall Case
To successfully pursue a slip and fall claim, your lawyer must establish the four key elements of negligence. This requires showing:
Duty of Care: the Property Owner Had an Obligation to Keep Their Premises Safe
To have a successful slip and fall claim, we must prove that the property owner had a “duty of care.” This means that property owners have to keep their premises safe for visitors and customers. They must make sure there are no hazards that could cause harm.
Breach of Duty: a Hazard on the Property Threatened Your Safety
A critical aspect of your case involves showing that the property owner did not keep their premises safe for invited guests, putting others at risk of serious injuries. A breach of the property owner’s duty could stem from poor maintenance, insufficient warnings, or not fixing known dangers.
Causation: the Property’s Hazard Caused Your Injury
It’s important for your lawyer to prove that the dangerous condition on the property caused your injuries. This shows that the property owner’s negligence caused your harm.
Damages: You Have Losses Arising From the Slip and Fall
Your lawyer must show that you have losses because of the property owner’s breach of duty and the fall itself. These losses can include medical expenses, lost income, and other damages.
Our Newberry Lawyers Fight to Recover Financial Compensation for Your Fall
Since we first opened our doors, we’ve recovered millions for injured claimants. Compensatory damages may include:
- Medical expenses: Reimbursement for medical bills can include hospitalization, surgeries, physical therapy, and ongoing medical care.
- Lost wages: A settlement or court award could include compensation for income lost due to your injuries, including past and future lost earnings.
- Pain and suffering: Pain and suffering is a type of non-economic damage that reflects the accident’s effect on your quality of life. Other compensable losses in this category include scarring, disfigurement, and disability.
- Property damage expenses: Your slip and fall may have damaged personal belongings, such as prescription eyeglasses and assistive devices.
During this important time, our personal injury attorneys are here to help with your case and fight for your rights. We are committed to fairness and justice, advocating for the compensation you deserve. Your well-being is our top concern, and we will support you throughout the entire process.
