If you or someone you love is injured in an accident on someone else’s property in The Villages, then you may be entitled to damages for your injuries.
A premises liability lawyer from Bogin, Munns & Munns will fight to get you the money you need and deserve for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
How Our Lawyers Can fight for You
Your premises liability lawyer can investigate the circumstances surrounding your accident to get to the bottom of what happened, how it happened, and who is to blame. Then, they will use this information to fight for your rights at the negotiating table and in the courtroom, if necessary.
Our Lawyers Can Investigate Your Accident
We can uncover evidence that shows that the property owner’s negligence resulted in your injuries. In order to do this, they may interview witnesses, dig up CCTV footage, and track down paper trails that can demonstrate how your accident happened and how it has impacted your health and happiness.
Our Lawyers Can Prove You Were Owed a Duty of Care
In order to recover damages, you will need to prove that the property owner failed to meet the duty of care they owed you to keep their property—and any visitors on said property—safe.
According to Florida Statutes §768.075, trespassers are not owed this duty of care. However, if you were on the property legally, then you may be able to recover damages for your injuries. We can help you prove that you were not trespassing and were within your rights to be safe on the property in question.
Our Lawyers Can Prove the Property Owner was Negligent
In addition to proving that you were owed a duty of care, your lawyer will also need to prove that you were injured because of a dangerous condition on that property that the owner should have remedied. If the owner allowed a defective condition to persist, then they may be held liable for the resulting injuries.
Some of these defective conditions are as follows:
- Wet and slick surfaces: These may be caused by spills, splashes, leaks, and rainwater.
- Uneven surfaces: This can include uneven ramps or cracked sidewalks.
- Inadequate security: If the property owner fails to maintain adequate security and a crime is committed, this could make them responsible for your damages.
- Toxic chemicals: If unsafe chemicals get into the air or water due to inadequate maintenance, then the property owner may be held liable.
- Inadequate lighting: This can include places like parking garages, parking lots, stairwells, and sidewalks.
These conditions can lead to a variety of accidents such as slip and fall, trip and fall, and swimming pool accidents. If you or someone you love was injured after an accident on someone else’s property due to a defective condition, you might have a case for compensation.
Our Lawyers Can Work for Fair Compensation
We can negotiate with insurance companies, making sure you are aware of unfair settlement offers. We can let you know what fair compensation would look like in your case and work so that you do not suffer any further losses as a result of your accident injuries.
Oftentimes, insurance companies will try to pay you less than the amount you are owed in an effort to reduce costs for them. Negotiating with them by yourself can become a headache filled with paperwork and bureaucracy.
We will take this task on so that you can spend less time with the hassle of pursuing compensation for your injuries and more time recovering with your loved ones.
Our Lawyers Can See Your Case Through to the End
In some cases, despite all evidence, the insurance companies will still refuse to pay what you are owed. In these instances, your Bogin, Munns & Munns lawyer will not hesitate to take your case to trial to advocate for your rights. We will do what it takes to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
You Have a Limited Time to Act
After a slip and fall, dog bite, or other premises liability accident, make sure you act quickly. If a lawsuit is the best option for recovering compensation, you only have two years to act. This time limit also applies if someone is filing a wrongful death suit on behalf of a deceased loved one.
The clock is ticking on your time in which to file a lawsuit, so call Bogin, Munns & Munns today.
