How a Jacksonville Slip and Fall Lawyer Helps Benefit Your Claim
All Florida property owners have the responsibility to make sure that their property is safe. At Finnell, McGuinness, Nezami & Andux P.A., we have many years of experience representing those who have been injured from a slip and fall injury in or around Jacksonville. Ultimately, slip and fall injuries can lead to serious and often life-altering injuries. Whether unlit stairwells, wet floors, uneven pavement, or any other negligence, a slip and fall lawyer from our Florida law firm can help to determine whether you’re owed compensation or not.
Understanding Comparative Negligence
Before filing an insurance claim, it’s important to understand that a property owner may be able to argue that you bear some of the blame for the accident. If this is successful, then you will see a part of your court award taken away (in instances of shared fault). A property owner in Jacksonville could argue that you weren’t invited on the property, you weren’t paying attention causing the injury, you were wearing footwear that was unsafe, or the dangerous condition should have been obvious to you.
Florida’s pure comparative negligence rule would determine your share of legal blame for the accident and how much compensation you receive.
