The Florida injury attorneys at Bernstein & Maryanoff represent clients who have been wrongfully injured because of the negligence or recklessness of others. The firm handles matters that include situations where people have slipped and fallen while legally on the premises of another person or entity, and the firm has settled a Florida personal injury lawsuit against a business in the state based on injuries that were allegedly sustained when the firm’s client slipped, fell and was injured while legally in the defendant’s parking lot.
Specifically, this lawsuit was filed in the Circuit Court of the 11th Judicial Circuit in and for Miami-Dade County, Florida. The case was assigned to the General Jurisdiction Division, and it was given a case number of 11-27170 CA (20). The theory behind the lawsuit is what is known as premises liability, and the case seeks the recovery of damages for losses incurred by the plaintiff as a result of an alleged incident that occurred on the property of the defendant.
The court documents state that the plaintiff was in the parking lot that was the responsibility of the defendant to maintain, and that the plaintiff allegedly slipped and fell in that parking lot because of uneven pavement that was not obvious to those who are not familiar with that area. The lawsuit was filed because the plaintiff, according to court documents, incurred several forms of damages that included medical costs, lost income and pain and suffering.
After the case was filed, the Florida injury attorneys at the firm and the defendant and its representatives successfully negotiated a settlement for the case. The amount of damages that were paid to the plaintiff is to remain confidential per the settlement agreement that was executed between the parties. The lawsuit has since been dismissed and the matter is considered to be closed.
