If you were injured in an accident you have questions. One hundred percent of my practice is dedicated to representing people accident victims. Our firm has handled personal injury cases throughout the state of Florida and in Miami-Dade County, Broward County and West Palm Beach County.
If you have been injured in an accident and were contacted by an insurance company or an insurance company claims adjuster, call a personal injury lawyer. Insurance companies do not have your best interest in mind and will not explain your rights to you. Hire a personal injury lawyer with experience dealing with insurance companies and insurance company claims adjusters. I have experience dealing with insurance companies from all of the major auto insurance companies operating in South Florida.
Our firm has handled claims against Geico, Progressive, State Farm, Esurance, Allstate, United Automobile, Windhaven, and many others. Do not let a car insurance company tell you that you are at fault in an accident. Many accidents can place both parties at fault. For example, a red light, green light accident, the police could have said that the accident involves a “he said, she said accident” and neither party was issued a ticket. If you were injured in a car accident call a personal injury lawyer with experience.
If you were injured in a slip and fall accident take note that department stores like Macy’s, Target, Walmart, and others all have a claims handling department to address the cost of accidents that occur in or around their business’.
If you are injured in a store like Target, Walmart, Publix, or any other business open to the public report your accident to the store manager or other employee. If anyone witnessed the accident ask for their name and phone number. Witnesses are usually eager to help. Save proof you were at the store. For example your receipt.
Hiring an attorney quickly after an accident in a public place is especially important. Many public places are equipped with surveillance cameras. A lawyer will ensure that any surveillance video captured is preserved for later viewing.
If you fell in a public building such as an apartment complex, office building, or even a parking lot a personal injury lawyer will document the condition that caused your accident and identify any building code violations which may have caused your accident. It is important to document the scene of your accident from the beginning of your claim, before the condition is repaired. A personal injury lawyer will do this for you. Remember if there is no recovery on behalf of you, the injured party, then I charge you nothing.
If you had a slip and fall in a major supermarket or department store do not communicate with their claims department on your own. Companies like Sedgwick Claims Management, or CMS may contact you, if they do call a personal injury lawyer. Claims adjusters for these companies may offer a coupon or gift card to you for your troubles. Remember that a slip and fall can cause serious life changing injuries. Do not let an insurance claims adjuster convince you to settle your claim without speaking to a personal injury lawyer first. Remember insurance adjusters are not interested in explaining your rights to you.
Insurance adjusters want to settle your claim as quickly and cheaply as possible, that’s their job. Our job is to make sure that you get everything that the law entitles you to. Our job is to make sure you make an educated decision before settling your claim.
Slip and fall accidents occur in all types of buildings, not only stores. In fact it are just a few examples of how you can have an injury claim;
Slippery stairs in an apartment building or other public building.
Leaky roofs in apartment buildings, falling plaster ceilings.
Potholes in parking lots.
Leaky plumbing inside an apartment, in a store, or other public building.
Crumbling concrete stairs.
Building owners should keep their property free of risk of injury. That’s their job. If you are injured in your own apartment you may have a claim against your landlord.
