Premise Liability Lawyer Fort Lauderdale
If you need a Fort Lauderdale premise liability lawyer because you have been injured while on someone else’s property we recommend that you call Fort Lauderdale’s leading personal injury law firm Martin, Lister & Alvarez today! A 2010 change in Florida law shifted the burden of proof in premise liability cases from the proprietor to the injured party. This dramatically changed the way premise liability attorneys pursue cases with the biggest difference being a need for speed. It’s imperative that you contact us as soon after the event as possible.
Premise liability can be tricky. While slip and fall injuries are the most common, any injury you suffer while a visitor may bring premise liability into play even if you believe the injury was a result of your own clumsiness or inattention.
Another common characteristic of these cases is the injured party not suffering any symptoms until a few days after the incident. Before you even consider a lawsuit, several days could have passed. During that time the scene of the accident could have been changed and witnesses and reports may become difficult to find.
Our suggestion…use your cell phone to take pictures, get cell numbers of witnesses and report the incident to a responsible representative of the proprietor. Next stop is your doctor for a checkup. The last step is to call the professionals at Martin, Lister & Alvarez for a complimentary evaluation of your case and advice on your options.
