Over a quarter million people have been injured and more than 3,000 people have been killed annually in recent years. We assist clients with filing personal injury claims against distracted, reckless, drunk, and aggressive drivers.
- Slip and Fall—All property owners and business owners have a duty to maintain their premises to ensure safety for invitees. When property owners fail to fix leaking roofs, install no slip flooring, or repair broken railings at steps, slip and falls are bound to happen. Slip and falls affect people of all ages and abilities. However, the elderly are impacted the most. 88 percent of all fall deaths are those of people aged 65 and older, according to Florida Health.
- Negligent Security—Property and business owners have more duties than just maintaining walking surfaces. Another obligation that property and business owners have to their invitees is to prevent crime and violence by, depending on the type of premises, installing lighting in parking lots and parking structures, installing security cameras, ane employing bouncers and security guards.
- Dog Bites—Dog owners not only can be held liable for injuries their dogs cause when their dog is out walking on a leash or has escaped, but they can be sued when their dog bites or attacks a guest at the residence of the dog owner. For example, if a dog bites a neighbor walking up the driveway, the child of a friend invited over for dinner, or a mail carrier delivering a package, that owner can and should be held accountable.
Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse
Nursing home abuse and neglect is a growing problem here in Stuart and throughout Florida. We expect high quality service and compassion when it comes to caring for our loved ones, but nursing homes commonly fail in this regard, and should be held financially accountable when they engage in abuse or neglect.
