Miami Slip & Fall Lawyer
A property owner, business or other commercial enterprise owes a duty to provide a safe environment for customers or others lawfully on their property. This duty may include inspecting the property and making prompt repairs of any unsafe conditions, or putting up a warning of hazards until they are fixed. When property owners fail to keep their premises reasonably safe, they can be liable for any injuries which occur due to their negligence. At Spencer Morgan Law, we understand the complex challenges often faced in these cases. Our experienced Miami slip & fall lawyer has particular expertise in premises liability matters and is the attorney to go to when you have been injured in a Miami slip, trip or fall. Read on to learn more about these serious accidents, and how Spencer Morgan Law can help.
Why You Need an Attorney after a Slip, Trip or Fall
It may seem obvious to you after a slip or trip and fall about what caused you to fall and get hurt. Unfortunately, recovering compensation from the property owner may not be so simple and straightforward. For instance, if the condition that made you fall was only present temporarily, such as a spilled liquid on the floor or a box of merchandise in the aisle, you will need to prove that the condition lasted for an unreasonably long period of time before you fell – long enough for the business owner or an employee to notice it but fail to clean it up or put up a warning. On the other hand, if the hazard was more long-term or permanent in nature, like a broken curb or stairs with a missing handrail, the owner is likely to claim that the danger was so obvious that you should have known about it and taken care to avoid getting hurt. Spencer Morgan knows how to investigate an accident, gather evidence, and build a strong case that establishes the property owner’s liability.
Another challenging aspect of slip, trip and fall cases is the fact that property owners and their insurance carriers often try to discount the serious nature of your injury. Slips, trips and falls can cause serious, debilitating injuries, including hip and wrist fractures, facial lacerations, and concussions, as well as muscle tears or sprains in the back and neck which can be disabling and take many months to heal, with lingering pain. With years of experience handling slip and fall and trip and fall cases in Miami, Spencer Morgan understands how to present medical evidence and convey the serious nature of your injury to an insurance company or jury.
Spencer Morgan Law handles the full range of premises liability claims, including negligent security claims after an assault in a Miami nightclub or other attack occurring in an apartment complex, parking garage or other premises where reasonable security was lacking.
