You were just visiting a property and had reasonable expectations that you would be safe. But maybe you had a slip-and-fall accident, or perhaps a dog bit you. Your medical bills may be piling up, and your injuries may cause you to miss work.
If the property owner’s negligence caused your injuries, you can seek damages. Premises liability cases can be tricky, but a personal injury lawyer from Dismuke Law can handle your legal case in pursuit of the compensation you deserve.
A Sebring Premises Liability Lawyer Can Help Recover Compensation for You
From minor injuries, such as cuts and bruises, to major injuries, such as broken bones, your injuries could lead to expensive medical bills. You may have also lost income because your injuries kept you from going to work. These are two examples of economic damages that you can pursue. Other types of economic damages include:
- In-home aid
- Physical therapy
- Equipment costs
- Future medical bills
- Reduced earning capacity
Economic damages are verifiable losses with monetary value. In addition, you can pursue non-economic damages such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional distress
- Loss of quality of life
- Loss of consortium (companionship with your spouse).
Non-economic damages are non-monetary losses but are still important to take into consideration when calculating the value of your claim.

How Our Sebring Premises Liability Attorneys Can Help
When you hire our firm, you get an advocate who will look after your best interests. You get a law firm that primarily handles personal injury cases, including premises liability cases. We will treat you like a member of our own family because we believe in connecting with our clients and making sure their voice is heard.
You also get an attorney who will:
Investigate the Accident
Inspecting the premises where you were hurt allows us to note any hazards or dangerous conditions. We will also collect evidence to strengthen your case, such as witness accounts, inspection logs, safety reports, expert opinions, surveillance videos, and photographs. The sooner we can start, the better.
Recovering compensation requires us to prove that the property owner’s negligence resulted in your injuries and losses. Did they fail to repair the premises or remove a dangerous hazard? Did they know about the problem? Did they fail to properly warn you and others? If your accident was foreseeable, the property owner can be held liable for damages.
Determine the Value of Your Claim
The property owner’s insurance company may make an initial settlement offer, but that offer could be too low and won’t adequately cover your losses. We will calculate the value of your claim so we can determine if the offer is fair or not. If it’s not fair, we will counter the offer.
Negotiate a Fair Settlement
After we send the insurance company a demand letter outlining your injuries and losses, we will enter into negotiations to reach a fair settlement that will cover your losses. Our firm has the training and knowledge to negotiate on your behalf to protect your interests.
Represent You in Court
If necessary, we are not afraid to file a lawsuit and take your case to court as part of our effort to win compensation for you. We prepare every case for trial even though most cases settle out of court.
Travel to You If You Can’t Come to Us
Maybe you are stuck in the hospital or at your home because of your injuries. That’s entirely understandable, which is why we will travel to you or consult with you over the phone if you prefer.

Our Premises Liability Team Works on a Contingency Fee Basis
You may be hesitating to hire an attorney because of the cost, but our law firm works on a contingency fee basis, so you only pay us after we win your case and you receive compensation. Your lawyer will explain how this works in more detail.
Furthermore, we offer free consultations, and there are no upfront fees. We believe that everyone has the right to legal representation regardless of financial status.
Our Sebring Premises Liability Lawyers Will Work to Meet the Statute of Limitations
Premises liability cases can be tricky, so starting your case as soon as possible after the accident is the best course of action. For example, witnesses’ memories fade over time. The sooner we can investigate and gather evidence, the stronger your case will be.
That being said, you do have time to decide whether to file a lawsuit or not. The statute of limitations to file a personal injury lawsuit in Florida is generally four years per Florida Statutes § 95.11.
Unfortunately, if you lost a loved one, you generally only have two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit according to the same statute. We will work to meet these deadlines so you do not lose your right to file a lawsuit in pursuit of the compensation you deserve.
