Adjusting to life after a serious injury takes time. From coping with the pain to creating strategies to stay afloat financially, you have a lot on your plate—so it can seem impossible to focus on filing a premises liability claim.
Many victims of slip and fall accidents put off their claims until their health has improved. Unfortunately, waiting too long to take legal action could possibly reduce your chance of recovering fair compensation or any compensation at all.
Important evidence to prove negligence and liability may possibly be covered up—for example, CCTV camera footage might be erased, and the hazard that caused your fall might be fixed before it can be properly documented. The less evidence you have to prove liability, the less likely it will be that your claim will result in a fair settlement.
The premises liability lawyers at Frankl & Kominsky are ready to conduct an investigation into your accident, gather evidence, and try to help you navigate the claims process.
We are aware of the tactics used by insurance companies to minimize the amount of compensation they have to pay out. They might review your social media accounts for evidence that your injuries are less severe than you are claiming. They might try to coerce you into admitting fault in a recorded statement. They might look for evidence that you were partially or entirely to blame for your fall.
Besides handling correspondence with the insurance company and other parties involved in your claim, we will try to help reduce the stress on you and your family by returning your calls and emails quickly, and keep you updated on the status of your claim.What Damages are Recoverable in Slip and Fall Claims in Florida?
Claimants in Florida slip and fall cases can try to pursue compensation for compensatory and exemplary damages. Compensatory damages include your economic losses (e.g. medical bills, lost income, and loss of earning capacity) and non-economic losses (e.g. emotional distress, pain and suffering, physical impairment and disfigurement, loss of consortium, and loss of enjoyment in life).
Exemplary damages, or “punitive damages,” will not be recoverable unless it can be shown that the defendant acted with gross negligence or intentional misconduct—which is rare in premises liability cases.
You will need strong evidence to try to prove the value of your damages and to tie your losses to your slip and fall. Common evidence used to prove damages in premises liability claims includes:
- Medical bills;
- Medical documentation;
- Income tax returns;
- Photos of injuries;
- Invoices for home modifications;
- The incident report;
- CCTV camera footage;
- Your journal about your injuries; and
- Testimony from medical experts and financial experts.
