Slip and Fall

Miami Slip and Fall Lawyer

In law, there is a concept called premises liability. The basics of it is that if you own property, you must keep it safe for the people who enter it. This is most commonly referred to as “Slip and Fall” cases. These cases mostly happen in stores or restaurants, but may also occur in condominiums or even private residences.

When you fall on a property that is not yours, and the reason you fell was not that of your own doing then you may have a case. The first thing you must do is call for medical attention, do not attempt to get yourself up, some injuries can be exasperated by doing so. Just remain on the floor and wait for medical experts to arrive.

Take pictures of the surrounding area and let the owner of the property know what occurred. If the owner has a policy of making a report make sure you explain to them what occurred and ask for a copy of the report. Write down as much information about what occurred down while it is still fresh in your mind.

In order for a lawsuit to go through to pay for your damages, you must seek medical treatment within the first two weeks. For your initial treatment, you have a couple of options. If you are seriously injured at the scene and require immediate medical attention request an ambulance to take you to a hospital straight from the scene. If you can drive/walk and do require medical attention, there are many urgent care centers around the state, which are usually more convenient than hospitals and not as busy.

The time after the initial treatment is where you should begin looking for a lawyer to handle your possible claim. This is where we come in, here at Lolo Legal we will find who was at fault and what insurance they have. We will do an investigation and gather all the evidence they may have as well as any you were able to recover from the scene. We will put their insurance company on notice that you are injured because of their insured and seeking treatment. We will also send letters to whatever treatment facilities you require to get you back to 100% health and let them know that you have a pending suit, so they will not charge you until after you receive your settlement.

Once your treatment is complete we will compile all your medical records and send them to the at faults insurance along with a letter called a “Demand Letter”. A demand letter is basically a letter stating what your damages are (including medical bills, pain, and suffering, etc.) and asking for the insurance to reimburse you for those damages. We will then go back and forth with the insurance company until they pay you an adequate amount you agree with. If the insurance company does not come up with a number that is adequate then the process will move to the courts.

At no point will you have to pay anything out of your own pocket, and we will not make any money unless you do. These type of cases are all handled on a standard contingency fee which most if not all attorneys of this type use. Because of this, we suggest you shop around different lawyers/law firms and see which is best for you.
