Premises Claims




Depending on your reasons for being on another's property,  Florida law requires landowners to keep their premises in a safe condition and to warn of any known hazards.


Trip & Falls


I have successfully tried fall cases to recover a jury verdict of more than $3.6 million dollars. Whether due to falling merchandise, poor lighting or a slippery substance on a floor,  you must prove what caused the accident. Take photos of the conditions, notify the business and ask them to retain the security video, note the time, date, who you spoke with and their comments about their knowledge of the hazard. Also try to note the names and numbers of  any witnesses. 


Criminal Attacks


Criminals are opportunists and frequently target the same businesses who fail to take reasonable efforts to reduce crime.  If attacked while shopping at a business, or while at a hotel or apartment,  call the police immediately and report the crime. Then call me so that the evidence can be preserved.
