Many people assume that in a premises liability situation, they have few legal options. If you are in a car accident in North Miami, you may realize that car insurance covers you and you also have health insurance to help cover some of your medical costs. In a premises liability case, all too often injured parties assume that they have no legal recourse and walk away from the situation without pursuing compensation.
This is can be a mistake. In many cases, injured parties have many options. They may pursue the property owner and their insurance company in a legal claim, for example. In some cases, personal injury attorneys in North Miami can also negotiate with insurance carriers or can seek other options for pursuing compensation. If you have been injured due to someone's recklessness, you may have a case. It is important to discuss your situation with a personal injury attorney in order to explore all your options.Florida Law Protects You if You Have Been Injured
Compensation maybe your right if you have been injured by someone's recklessness or negligence. Under Florida law, injured parties have a right to pursue compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, property damage, lost income, and other expenses if they have been injured by someone's negligence.
Your compensation is not meant to simply be punitive. It is meant to help you rebuild your life after an injury. If you've been seriously injured through no fault of your own, the results can be devastating. The medical bills can easily add up to many thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars if you've been seriously injured. Time away from work can mean that you struggle to pay bills and meet your financial obligations. If all of this is through no fault of your own, you should not have to pay for these costs out-of-pocket. Seeking fair compensation is your right, and you have every right to seek fair compensation for your injuries.
Seeking compensation and justice in a premises liability case also sends a powerful message to property owners. It encourages them to make important safety changes and shows all property owners the importance of taking proper care of their patrons, visitors, and others who visit the property. In many cases, important safety changes have been made after a property owner has been held legally accountable for their negligence and recklessness.
