At the Law Offices of Rand Saltsgaver, we help people who have been injured on someone else’s property and we are a great choice to represent you as your Orlando Premises Liability Attorney. When you come to us for assistance, we will help you determine the value of all of your accident-related injuries, and find evidence that proves the property owner or tenant was at fault and is liable for your losses. That evidence or proof we use to prove your premises liability claim may include photographs, accident reports, witness statements, first responder and police reports, applicable building codes, premises inspection reports, medical and hospital records, insurance policies, and previous earnings history. We might also speak with witnesses and seek information about other similar accidents on that same property. Finally, we consider the possibility of hiring accident reconstruction experts, who can explain what caused your accident, and reasons why the property owner or tenant was partially or totally at fault.
Once all the information has been collected, we will negotiate on your behalf with the property owners or tenants, or their insurance companies. If they fail to step up and accept responsibility for their negligence, we will represent you in court.
Property owners have a legal responsibility and obligation to keep their premises safe for their guests. They cannot let the property fall into disrepair, and create hazards that could cause harm to people. Property owners are considered to be negligent if they knew, or even if they should have known, that a dangerous condition existed on their property, and failed to warn of the hazard, or fix it.
The type of care property owners must provide depends on the legal status of the person coming onto the property. That individual will be an invitee, a licensee, or a trespasser. The property owner or tenant’s legal responsibility to each is different and impacts the value of the injured person’s claim.
We handle a variety of premises liability cases, such as 1. persons hurt on the job at construction sites, by outside companies, such as materialmen bringing supplies or fuel to the site. 2. Swimming pool accidents at hotels & resorts, AIRBNB’s, and short term rentals. 3. Persons injured at amusement parks, hotels, restaurants, concerts, and entertainment venues of all kinds, and when other persons, drivers, or companies negligently injure patrons at those same places. It’s important to remember that a signed waiver does not automatically protect property and facility owners from claims by persons injured on their property. If they failed to comply with Florida law, they can be held liable. The property owner or tenant’s negligence can come in many forms: slip and falls, elevator and escalator injuries, inadequate lighting, improper maintenance of floors, or business equipment, among others. Finally, the property owner or tenant can be potentially liable to persons injured by and inadequate security, resulting in criminal assault
The Law Offices of Rand Saltsgaver calculates the financial damages our clients have suffered in property liability cases, by looking at medical bills already incurred due to the accident, and projected future costs. The future expense may include physical or occupational therapy, doctor’s visits, surgeries, medical devices, and more. We also consider past and future loss of earnings or earning capacity. Finally, we determine the potential amount payable for our client’s pain and suffering, the inability to lead a normal life, and so forth. All of those potential factors may come into play for our injured clients, and most tragically, in some cases, for the survivors or family members in a wrongful death claim.
In the trying times following trauma, because a property owner, tenant of that property, or other third person or company failed to provide for your safety, you need a team that can get you back to square one, and compensated for all your losses. You need an experienced trial professional, who will fight for, and do what’s best for you, rather than simply accepting a quick settlement offer. Rand Saltsgaver has a long history of achieving results for his clients.
