If you are injured or suffer loss because of a slip and fall accident, the West Palm Beach slip and fall attorneys at Kogan, DiSalvo may be able to recover compensation for your injuries. Property owners, managers and lessees are legally obligated to maintain safe conditions on their premises or, at the very least, provide fair warning to residents, customers or patrons that a dangerous condition exists, which may cause them harm. If they fail to provide either of these, and you are injured as a result, you may have reason to file a personal injury injury claim under Florida law.
Additionally, insurance companies may attempt to quickly settle with you (the injured party) if they know their insured is liable for your accident. The full scope and extent of your injuries may not be evident for weeks, even months after your accident; therefore it is in your best interest to not accept any premature offers to settle made by the insurance company. The West Palm Beach slip and fall attorneys at our law firm are experienced in successfully advocating and recovering compensation for those injured in such accidents.
