While not an exhaustive list, you can suffer any type of injury. It is in your best interest to seek medical attention following an accident so that you have the documentation of it. Be sure to follow the doctor’s advice, or else you can derail your claim.

Compensation You Can Recover in a Premises Liability Claim

Plaintiffs in a premises liability claim can recover compensation for a multitude of damages caused by the defendant, including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Loss of future wages
  • Rehabilitative costs

A North Port premises liability lawyer will explain what damages you can claim when seeking compensation. All premises liability cases are different, which means there is no finite number that you can put on your case. The amount of compensation will depend on the severity of your injuries and the level of negligence of the property owner.

How to Prove a Premises Liability Case?

To prove a premises liability case, you will need a lot of evidence that shows the property owner knew about the hazard and failed to rectify it before someone can get hurt. Under premises liability law, the property owner must have reasonably known about the hazard and chose to ignore it or should have foreseen hazards on their property.

When you work with a North Port premises liability lawyer, you can focus on recovering from your injuries and not dealing with insurance companies or lawyers for the defendant. You need legal representation after suffering any type or severity of injury on property other than your own. Call Boohoff Law today for your free consultation.

Premises Liability FAQs

What Should I Do if Injured on Another Person’s Property?

Take immediate action by calling 911. You will want to be evaluated for any injuries and have a report filed with the police. Documenting the incident is vital to the success of any premises liability case.

Do I Need a Premises Liability Attorney?

Yes. Since premises liability law is so complicated, it is best to have a lawyer represent you. An attorney will negotiate on your behalf with the insurance company involved and represent you in court should you need to file a lawsuit against the property owner for compensation.

Do I Have a Limited Amount of Time to File a Claim?

Florida has a statute of limitations of four years from the date of the accident to file a claim. If you miss the deadline, the court will dismiss your case, leaving you with no opportunity to recover compensation.
