Premises Liability Claims
Were you injured on private, public, government or commercial property?
Any property owner or manager has the duty to exercise reasonable care for the safety of others that visit their property. If they fail to protect the safety of visitors, they can be held liable should an injury take place. Premises liability cases vary widely, and include injuries from a slip or trip and fall due to slippery or uneven walking surfaces; security failures that led to an attack; drowning and pool accidents and others. If you or your loved one was injured in such a case, you need to contact a Miami personal injury lawyer at once.
Negligent Security and premises Liability
If you were attacked on someone else’s property because they failed to provide adequate security, you may be able to collect financial compensation through a premises liability claim. Negligent security might occur at an apartment building, hotel, motel, school, college, university campus, nursing home, hospital, bank, ATM, mall, shopping center, club, parking lot, restaurant or store. For example if you were assaulted in a stairwell because a parking garage owner failed to provide security cameras and adequate lighting, you may be entitled to money. Businesses and property owners in high crime areas should make sure that visitors are protected adequately through cameras, lighting, gates, security personnel, locks, alarms and surveillance systems. If you believe that your injury could have been prevented if one of these precautions was taken, contact our firm today. Many premises liability claims are filed against residential property owners, apartments, motels and hotels.
Serious Injury Claims: Why settle?
At Klemick and Gampel, P.A., we offer superior, professional, high quality, legal counsel to assist you in the legal issues involved in filing a claim or lawsuit.

You have the right to pursue compensation when a property owner or manager has failed to maintain their property and it led to an injury. Security failures such as unlocked pool gates, lighting issues in hallways and stairways, uneven floor tiles, objects in the walkway, potholes, uneven sidewalks, unsafe or broken pool gates, pool drains and other situations can lead to very serious or permanent injury, or in the most tragic cases, the loss of a loved one. We can address all of these issues by negotiating with the insurance company or through litigating the matter in court. As accomplished trial lawyers, we prepare each case as if it will need to be presented to a jury; this can allow for the matter to be settled more quickly and at a higher level of compensation. Fully establishing liability is always an important factor in a personal injury claim, and we will move forward quickly to get evidence to support the case we could file on your behalf.
