Miami Gardens Premises Liability
Each year, people suffer slip and fall injuries in Miami Gardens and many other types of injuries due to poor property maintenance and property owner negligence. Florida law requires property owners – and especially business owners – keep their properties safe for lawful visitors but in some cases this is not done and serious injury results.

Your first priority if you've been seriously injured is to seek medical help. Even if you do not think that you have been seriously injured, it is important to get a medical evaluation. This does two things:
1) It can save your life if you have sustained an injury that does not show symptoms right away. Unfortunately, some serious types of injuries, including brain injuries, do not always show symptoms right away, but may still prove fatal. Getting checked out at Miami Gardens clinic or emergency room ensures that you are properly evaluated and any injury that you have sustained gets treated promptly.
2) It can help document the injury. If you wait to seek medical help until symptoms appear, a property owner and their insurance company may claim that your injuries were caused by something else – not by the negligence of the owner. Seeking medical advice right away shows that you take your health seriously and shows that you were seriously injured on the property.
Once you have sought medical help, you will want to get as much details and documentation about your injury as possible. Take photos of where you were injured, get copies of any police report or medical reports related to your injuries, and keep careful records of your symptoms, expenses, and other details related to your injury. Keep everything – including braces, prescription medication receipts, and any receipts related to your injury. Get contact information of any witnesses and keep a list of your expenses and injuries. The more information you have, the stronger your case may be.A Personal Injury Attorney Can Help You Fight Back
In addition to all of this, you will want to consult with a personal injury attorney in Miami Gardens or your community as soon as possible after your injury. Under Florida law, you may qualify for compensation that can help you pay for medical bills, lost income, property damage, and other expenses related to your injury. A personal injury attorney can help you explore your options for seeking a legal claim, getting money from insurance companies, and other options for seeking compensation. A personal injury attorney can also help protect your rights and your future so that you do not inadvertently sign away anything.
