Residential Property Injuries
Residential property includes houses, apartments, condominiums, co-ops, mobile homes, and so on. It also includes the common grounds of residential developments, such as the pool at an apartment complex or the parking lot of a condo development.
If you were injured on a residential property, there may be one or more responsible parties who owe you financial compensation. These parties may include:
- The homeowner
- The tenant
- The landlord
- The property manager
- The homeowners association
- The homebuilder
- And more
We will conduct a full investigation of your loose floorboard injury, determine who was liable, and collect evidence to hold them accountable.
Commercial Property Injuries
Commercial property includes office buildings, shopping malls, grocery stores, retail centers, medical offices, and more. Just like residential property, these places have owners, managers, tenants, and other parties who have a duty of care to keep the premises safe for visitors. We will determine if any of these parties failed in their duty to keep you safe, and then we will gather evidence and pursue them for fair compensation.
Industrial Property Injuries
Industrial property may include warehouses, plants, manufacturing centers, and other places of industry. Because of the nature of industrial work, these places are often hotbeds of hazardous conditions. But even so, the parties in charge of the property and its upkeep have a duty to keep it safe. If such parties fail in their duty, we will hold them liable.

We Pursue Compensation From the Responsible Parties
Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers is committed to making sure the party or parties responsible for your West Palm Beach loose floorboards injury foot the bill for your economic and noneconomic damages.
In Florida, you can recover compensation not only for your economic damages (meaning those leading to actual financial loss), but also for your noneconomic damages (referring to those that cannot be quantified in dollar terms).
A West Palm Beach premises liability lawyer will fight for the full slate of damages to which you are eligible to collect under state law, which may include:
- Medical Bills: As an injury victim, you deserve compensation not just for the medical bills you have already incurred, but also for those you may receive in the future. We make sure the responsible parties and their insurers pay for all of them.
- Lost Wages: You should not have to do without your income just because you are missing work to recover from your injury. We fight for the responsible parties to make up your lost wages.
- Reduced Earning Capacity: If your injury leads to a long-term reduction in your income, we help you make up the difference in what you would have otherwise been earning.
- Pain and Suffering: We pursue pain and suffering damages, as allowed by law.
- Loss of Enjoyment of Life: Loss of enjoyment of life refers to your inability to partake in hobbies and activities you once loved, leading to less fulfillment. The responsible party should compensate you for this—just as they would with any other loss.
The Florida Statute of Limitations for Personal Injuries Could Be Relevant
§ 95.11 of the Florida Statutes imposes a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury lawsuits, and if you let it expire, you could lose your right to compensation. To ensure that does not happen, Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers can take quick legal action if necessary.
