How Our Fort Myers Premises Liability Lawyers Help You
When your business is named in a premises liability suit, it is important that you start building your defense immediately. Our lawyers will spring into action to offer you the dedicated, thorough attention that you deserve. We work hard to ask and answer tough questions, such as:
- What is the comparative liability of the guest/invitee who is filing the claim?
- Is there causation? Would the plaintiff’s injuries have occurred otherwise (but for a dangerous condition)?
- Has the statute of limitations expired?
- Did a dangerous condition exist on the premise?
- Did you have knowledge of the condition?
- Is there another party who could be liable?
- How much time had passed between when you learned of the condition and when the injury occurred?
- Was the injured party on the property legally or trespassing at the time of the accident?
In addition to digging deep to get answers to the questions that will have a profound outcome on your case, we can also advise your business regarding different areas of your claim. For example, we can advise you in entering a settlement, on risk management and loss mitigation, and in regards to litigation.
