Florida has laws that aim to protect victims when they’re hurt because of the actions of a property owner.

We carefully prepare your legal paperwork. Your first papers are called your summons and complaint. It’s important to make sure that your summons and complaint includes all of the claims and types of damages that you may have in your case. Once we prepare your documents, we file them with the appropriate court and formally serve a copy to the other parties under the Florida rules of court.
It’s our goal to build the most persuasive case possible. Often, the strength of the case helps show the other side why it’s in their best interests to offer a favorable resolution to the case before the trial date even arrives.

If we succeed, we prepare your final documents and ensure that we collect your judgment as quickly as possible.

The purpose of Florida’s slip and fall laws is to help you return to the same position that you were in before the accident. Of course, when you have physical injuries, it’s not possible to make things the same as they were before. The best thing that the law can do is place a value on your physical, mental, and emotional suffering and provide you with financial compensation.
Some of your damages are direct, out-of-pocket loss. For example, any kind of medical expenses that you have because of the fall are part of your claim. You may have other financial losses that are not so obvious like lost work or even an interruption of your long-term career path. Any way that you’re financially impacted because of the slip and fall can be part of your legal claim.
Also, you have damages that aren’t financial. You have mental suffering. You have physical pain. Florida law places a dollar value on these real types of suffering so that you can receive compensation. We can help you ensure that you fairly value your claim to request everything that you deserve under Florida law.
