We Stand Up to Big Insurance Companies
Insurance companies can be particularly difficult in slip and fall personal injury cases. Many of them assume such claims are fraudulent. It’s important to have viable proof of their liability, generally established by showing the person or company responsible for your slip and fall (or trip and fall) was negligent.
You also must substantiate your injuries with proper medical documentation. Even with the proper proof to validate your claims, some insurance companies will still insist that you caused the accident in order to abdicate their duty to pay.
With a Tampa slip and fall accident lawyer who is aware of insurance company tactics, you can feel confident that you will have the necessary evidence and experience on your side.

Statute of Limitations in Slip and Fall Cases in Florida
Per Florida Statute § 95.11, the statute of limitations in Florida personal injury cases is two years from the date of injury or the date the injury was discovered. If you’ve already waited to pursue compensation, you should consider working with an injury lawyer.
