Jacksonville Premises Liability Lawyer

No matter what aspect of society you enter, there is a certain rule that everyone must obey. That rule, or law, is to act with a duty of care. In traffic, that means driving in a way that does not put anyone else at an unreasonable amount of risk. For store or business owners, that means that their place of business must be safe for all those who enter, whether they are customers, employees, residents of an apartment complex, or simply a person stopping in to ask for directions (these are called invitees). But what exactly does it mean to create an environment that is reasonably safe for all? That question is up to the judgment of an experienced lawyer and the court of law. If an invitee slipped and fell, resulting in a fractured hip, all evidence of the fall must be taken into account. Was the floor unreasonably wet or slippery? Were there extension cords? Or, was the invitee drunk or somehow stumbled on their own accord? Premises liability cases do not only involve slip and falls, although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report over 30,000 deaths from falls every year.

A business or property owner may be found liable in a variety of circumstances, including unfit security conditions that lead to a robbery or assault, dog bites, fires, amusement park accidents, water leaks, falling merchandise or equipment, inadequate premises maintenance, and toxic fumes or lethal chemical exposure (75-80 percent of cancer deaths are due to environmental factors, according to Physicians for Social Responsibility). Whenever a serious injury or death occurs on a premises that was possibly the cause of unsafe grounds, an experienced lawyer needs to look into the incident. If you or a family member has been injured on the premises of a business owner or property owner that you were not responsible for, contact an experienced Jacksonville premises liability lawyer today.

Proving Negligence and Fighting Back Against Negligent Business or Property Owner Denials

If we have learned one thing during our years of dealing with premises liability claims, it is that business and property owners often lie about the conditions their premises was in during the accident, or they deny that the accident occurred on their property altogether. They may quickly take action to clean a slippery floor, repair a leaking pipe, or rearrange merchandise that was unsafely stacked after the incident, attempting to cover up their negligence. To help combat their dishonest efforts, it is important to report any injury to the manager at the time of the accident, to gather witness testimony and contact information, and to photo document the area as well as possible in the minutes after the accident. Others may be able to do this for you if you are too injured to do it. Additionally, seeking the care of a doctor will not only help you get back on your feet as soon as possible and avoid lingering aches and debilitating pains, but it will also establish a record of your injuries, helping to show that you really were injured.

The next step is hiring a lawyer. Call 1-888-573-6327 today to speak with an experienced Jacksonville premises liability lawyer at the law offices of The Pendas Law Firm. We will examine the specifics of your case and work diligently to protect your rights and help you recover compensation.
