Slip and Fall Lawyer Stuart FL

Slip, Trip and Fall Hazards

It is important to understand how these incidents arise, whether there exists a duty, and have you been injured.  There is also the issue of comparative negligence.  If you are careless or knowingly place yourself in a potentially dangerous situation, you may not be entitled to recover compensation for your injuries.  Slip, trip and fall hazards can be very involved.  They are subject to the situation at that specific time.  Videos, witnesses, reports, and conditions are integral in providing supporting evidence for your case.

Often someone will trip on something or slip on a wet surface and, because of their embarrassment, convince themselves it was due to their own lack of coordination.  There is this inherent misconception.  Usually, there is an underlying cause to which you may or may not have contributed.  A wet floor, an uneven surface, or some other anomaly may have contributed to or caused your fall.

Whether or not the property owner knew or should have known about the potential slip, trip and fall hazard is another issue.  Was there a duty?  Did the owner have reason to know or should have known about the potential hazard?  Is there more than one party responsible for the maintenance of the location where you fell?  These are questions of law.

If the incident was simply a stumble and the individual regained their balance, there are no injuries and therefore, no damages.  However, if you fell and it resulted in an injury, you could be incapacitated and require medical attention.

If your case meets these criteria, you could be awarded monetary damages for your injuries which could include compensation for medical costs, lost wages, permanent disability, emotional distress and other damages directly related to your injury.

If you or a loved one has been injured as the result of a slip, trip and fall and need a zealous advocate in your corner, give me a call.  My name is Randy Fischer of Randall A. Fischer, P.A.  I am a Lawyer with offices, in Stuart, Port St. Lucie, and Jupiter Florida.

What is a Motion for Summary Judgment?

What is a Motion for Summary Judgment?

Either party may file a motion for summary judgment.  The filing party is requesting the court to rule on the case as a matter of law.  This means there are no questions of fact in dispute.  The motion is used to expedite the resolution of a dispute.  Affidavits, pleadings, depositions and other evidence which would be admissible at trial are reviewed by the Judge to determine whether there is a question of fact.   The judgment sought shall be rendered if the pleadings, depositions, answers to interrogatories, admissions, affidavits, and other materials as would be admissible in evidence on file show that there is no genuine issue as to any material fact and that the moving party is entitled to a judgment as a matter of law. A summary judgment, interlocutory in character, may be rendered on the issue of liability alone although there is a genuine issue as to the amount of damages.

Motions for summary judgment can be used for almost any legal action.  However, actions regarding the contract disputes lend themselves readily to use of this type of resolution.  Most recently here in Florida, foreclosure actions have taken stage front and center, many of which have been disposed of through the Plaintiff’s use of the Motion for Summary Judgment.

If you are involved in a dispute which may result in litigation in Stuart FL, Port St. Lucie FL, or Jupiter FL and need a lawyer, please give my office a call.  It is important to address your legal rights before you get to a point where the opposition has either filed for a default or for a Motion for Summary Judgment.

What is a Limited Liability Company?

What is a Limited Liability Company?

Lawyer Stuart FL, Port St. Lucie Fl, and Jupiter FL

A limited liabilty company is a vehicle through which business can be conducted without many of the statutory constraints afforded a corporation and benefits that are not available to a C corporation.  The limitation of liability associated with an LLC along with the passthrough of profits and/or losses are tremendous attributes when considering which business entity to create.

Since an LLC operates more like a partnership, it is the operating agreement that is of key importance.  The operating agreement is just that an agreement upon which the members of the limited liability company intent to conduct business.  If time is not properly spent on thoughtfully constructing this agreement prior to creating the business, then the disputes which may arise later could have dire consequences.  What happens if there is a death of the managing member?  Who controls what interest?  How are decisions made?  What is my investment?

These are just a few of the critical questions that need to be addressed in the operating agreement.  Many clients think it is just a matter of filing the LLC with the state and then when something happens there is nothing but problems and expense.  That is why it is important to consult with a Lawyer before deciding what entity to use and how to mitigate liability and taxes.  I am a Lawyer in Stuart, FL that can help.  I also have Law offices in Port St. Lucie FL and Jupiter FL, as well.

What does “Due Diligence” mean?

What does “Due Diligence” mean?

Due Diligence is a standard of care a reasonable person would undertake to avoid harm, damage or liability when undertaking an action, whether it be investing in a business or, for that matter, making a career change.  It is not an absolute standard, but is an extremely important consideration when making big decisions.

When deciding whether or not to invest in or enter into a business or real estate venture, it is important to conduct due diligence to determine whether you investment is sound.  Take the time to understand the structure of the deal, the individuals involved, the assets in place or at risk, the plan or strategy of the venture, be able to isolate the risk/reward associated with the venture.  Don’t allow your investment of time, money, or effort result in sheer folly.  Find out as much as possible before you make your decision.  Do not let your ego talk you into making a bad decision.  Take your time and if there isn’t time, don’t take the deal.  You may miss-out, but at least you will not lose out.

Many opportunities may appear extremely good on the surface, but there can be many issues lurking behind the deal that are not readily apparent.  An example would be purchasing a piece of prime real estate.  Although on the surface, the property may be sound, issues regarding previous uses, building materials, subsurface anomalies, environmental issues, proximity to other environmental issues and potential impact on the subject investment, recorded and unrecorded liens, easements and encroachments, zoning and other restrictions could turn the opportunity into a nightmare.  When evaluating the overall real estate venture it would be very important to incorporate the costs associated with investigating these and any other considerations into the overall investment.  Once weighed, the investor is now in a better position to make an informed decision.  This is true for any major decision.

Due diligence is important.  Take the time to know what you are getting involved in and consult with experts.  It is important to discuss your venture with a lawyer.  A lawyer familiar with these potential pitfalls can assist you and help you avoid these potential issues before they germinate into a lawsuit after the fact.
