There are few things worse than sustaining a serious injury because of another party’s negligence.

Contact The Finizio Law Group, P.A. today to learn more about slip and fall accidents in Florida and how we can help if you’ve been hurt in one.
Do I Need a Broward County Slip and Fall Lawyer?
The Finizio Law Group, P.A. can help you prove that your injuries were caused by a dangerous property condition and that the owner knew about such conditions. With recent changes in Florida legislation, an experienced Broward County personal injury attorney is essential to securing a fair settlement in these types of cases. Holding a property owner liable for a slip and fall accident must be foreseeable such that negligence would create the hazard at issue. It is important to contact an attorney soon after a slip and fall, as witnesses can forget vital details, and key pieces of evidence can be lost. Don’t delay.
Proving a Premises Liability Claim
Proving a premises liability claim is not always easy. To win such a claim, you must prove the following:
- The property owner knew or should have known about the unsafe property condition(s)
- The property owner failed to remedy/repair or otherwise clear away the unsafe property condition(s) timely.
- You were injured because of the unsafe property condition(s).
- The injury caused you to sustain significant damages.
As long as you and your Broward County slip and fall lawyer can gather and present sufficient evidence to satisfy the burden of proof, you should receive a monetary award to help compensate you for the economic and non-economic damages you’ve sustained. These can include pain and suffering, lost wages, emotional trauma, the cost of medical bills, and more. Our firm is here to fight for you.
Statute of Limitations
Florida’s statute of limitations for premises liability claims is, typically, four years. This gives anyone who was wrongfully injured four years from the date of their accident to pursue financial compensation from the liable party. Our firm recommends bringing your claim to our attention as soon as possible, for the longer you wait, the more difficult it will become to prove your claim. Further, waiting longer than four years will most likely result in you permanently losing your right to pursue compensation altogether.
