Slip and Fall AccidentsIf you are injured while on vacation in Florida, you enjoy the same rights as a Florida resident. That means, Florida's civil laws are availble to you so that you can obtain compensation for your injuries and losses. The most common injuries that we see from visitors to Florida arise from car accidents, motorcycle accidents, and premises liability accidents such as slip and falls and trip and falls. Regardless, Florida residents and visitors enjoy civil remedies when injured due to the fault or negligence of another person or corporation. If you believe that your injury in Florida was caused because of another person's negligence, then you may be able to advance a claim for money damages.
There are some unique challenges with cases involving visitors to Florida, mostly related to medical treatment and expert opinions. We have the experience to guide you through this process to help make your claim as smooth and stress free as possible. In most instances, you will not have to return to Florida to make your injury claim. We can handle the proceedings on your behalf. Many proceedings can also be accomplished by video conferencing.
Generally you have 2 years from the date of the injury to commence a lawsuit in the State of Florida. Although this sounds like a long time, it is not. Waiting to get started can be devastating to your claim. Most cases resolve without a lawsuit and require prompt action to get the insurance company to pay your claim.
If you are not from Florida, you may be concerned about the expense of hiring a lawyer in Florida to assist you with your injury claim. You should know that we accept cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you pay us nothing unless we recover money for you.
