Doral Slip & Fall Lawyer

Doral Slip & Fall LawyerDoral, Florida is an incorporated suburb of Miami. At just one mile from Miami International Airport and only seven miles from downtown, it is a popular destination for tourists, the business industry, and professional and amateur golfers alike. When a slip, trip or fall occurs in Doral – or in the greater Miami area – you need an experienced Doral slip and fall attorney who will protect your legal right to be compensated by the person who caused your injuries. The attorneys at Gerson & Schwartz have over forty-six years of experience in protecting the rights of accident victims across the Miami area.

What Types of Slip and Fall Accidents Entitle a Victim to Compensation?

There are many types of slip and fall injuries which can occur in a city like Doral. Contrary to popular belief, the victim is not always to blame for such an accident. Landowners – including homeowners and business owners – have a legal obligation to maintain their property in safe condition. If they fail to meet this duty of care, they are legally obligated to compensate an accident victim for injuries which occurred as a result.

Golf Course Accidents

Doral is famous for its well-tended golf courses. But slip and fall accidents can occur there, just as anywhere else, and it is not necessarily the golfer’s fault when they do. For example: a golf course which fails to fix a leaking sprinkler may be legally responsible (“liable”) if a golfer later slips in the unexpected puddle. The golf course owners have the legal obligation to inspect their premises and make them safe for patrons. If they fail to do so (for example, by negligently failing to warn golfers of a dangerous mud hole, or failing to maintain clear sidewalks) the club itself is liable for injuries which occur as a result of the breach of this duty.

Water Related Injuries

There are many recreational facilities across the Miami area. Pools and water parks are fun for the whole family, but they carry the risk of slip and fall injuries. Wet pool decks, slippery sidewalks, slick slides and other surfaces can severely injure water park patrons. Like golf course owners, pool and water park owners have a duty to make their facilities safe for their customers. Boats, water skis, jet skis, wakeboards, and other water sports also involve slick surfaces and equipment which are common causes of injuries. When such injuries occur, there may be several different parties who are liable for the accident. Rental companies have a legal duty to inspect their equipment between rentals to ensure they are not renting unsafe or improperly maintained equipment. A boat owner may be liable for slick surfaces, or improperly stored flammable materials. Another boat owner may be liable for causing an accident with the boat the injury victim was riding. There are many water related personal injuries, and many parties who may be liable for causing them.

Stairwell Accidents

Stairwells are a common location of slip and fall injuries. When a slip, trip or fall occurs on a stairway, the owner of the property may be liable for the injuries which result. Improper lighting, slick surfaces, and other factors may contribute to the accident. A property owner has a legal obligation to identify such hazards on his or her land, and remedy them to prevent injuries from occurring.

A big shout out to Nick Gerson & Schwartz for helping me navigate my care after a fall against a major cruise ship. They took care of me all along the way and saw me through such a very hard time. I highly recommend their firm if you are looking for a firm that truly cares about you. 5 Stars all the way! Janna Wright, Google User
Mr Nick Gerson has been extremely attentive (even on weekends!) and has been more than willing to take time to answer all my questions. His receptionist (Suzanne) and paralegal (Carla) are courteous, friendly and highly efficient in all matters. Mr Gerson's diligence lead to a very quick resolution of my case. I am more than pleased to recommend you seek him as your attorney. You will not regret you did!! G.I.B.
Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side. I have appreciation for the good service that was given to me and my situation. Thanks. Cales & Mr. Hyde (Carlos Andrés García Jiménez), Google User
