Property ownership is viewed as one of the significant milestones in the life of a person or a business. It communicates the attainment of a certain degree of success and typically becomes one of the most valuable assets in one's portfolio. In addition to these notable benefits, however, it is important to recall that there are tremendous responsibilities associated with owning a structure or land. The failure to properly maintain one's property or to monitor its condition can create a dangerous situation in which a legally defined "guest" may suffer serious injury due to a property owner's negligence.
If you or your loved one has been hurt in an accident that occurred on another party's property then you may be able to pursue financial compensation through a civil lawsuit. Medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages may be recoverable.
Having obtained millions of dollars for clients in some of Florida's most complex personal injury cases, we at Salpeter Gitkin LLP are prepared to do everything possible to help maximize your compensation. This includes injury cases involving:
