Miami Beach is one of the most happening places in the entire world. People come here for the nightlife and just to be seen in public. However, being in public carries its own risks. You cannot always count on a property owner, business or even the City of Miami Beach to maintain their property in a safe way. When that happens, you and your loved one could end up hurt.
Slip and fall cases are not just about the victim being too clumsy or simply not careful enough. While those are convenient ways for property owners to try to blame accident victims instead of taking responsibility, the truth is that their actions are often responsible for these injuries. However, there are a number of steps between your injury and receiving compensation, even when it was someone else’s fault.
After you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, your first priority is medical help. One of your very first phone calls after you have been hurt should be to 388CEDA. We have doctors on staff that can help diagnose your injuries, including the common ones that people would suffer in a slip and fall. We offer the following medical services:
Our physicians can also provide accurate and thorough documentation of your injuries and the treatment those injuries received.
When you speak with a Miami Beach slip and fall lawyer for the first time, you can count on getting a lot of questions. Your attorney is not trying to interrogate you. They want to know what happened because slip and fall legal claims may be the most dependent on facts of any type of personal injury case.
The fact that you fell and were injured is not enough to qualify for financial compensation. Instead, you must show that someone else was at fault for your injury. That is the only way to get someone else to pay. Like any other personal injury case, you must show that they were negligent.
There are three elements of every single slip and fall claim. They are as follows:
While this sounds simple, your case needs an attorney who is able to prove each of these elements. Demonstrating what someone knew at the time and what they could have done requires investigation and knowledge of the facts.
Here are some examples of slip and fall injuries that could lead to compensation for injured victims:
Falling under each of these circumstances does not automatically mean that someone else must pay you. Instead, you must prove what happened at the time of the fall and show that the defendant should have known about the problem and fixed it.
