Jacksonville Slip & Fall Attorney
Helping victims of negligence by homeowners and storekeepers throughout Jacksonville, Florida and Brunswick, Georgia
Property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises reasonably free from hazardous conditions that could injure a pedestrian, customer or passerby. Homeowners and storekeepers who fail to take this responsibility seriously may be held liable for the resulting injuries if they are aware of the condition and fail to correct the problem. The Jacksonville slip & fall attorneys of Gillette Law, P.A. can help you take legal action if you were hurt while visiting another person’s premises and need a premises liability attorney.
Legal advice can be invaluable to you as you file your claim for damages. An attorney understands the issues and problems associated with filing a claim with the homeowner or commercial shopkeeper’s insurance, and can help to ensure that your claim is properly handled.
A premises liability action can involve inadequate safety and security or slip, trip and fall accidents. In either type of case, a premises liability lawyer can help to ensure that you receive the best possible representation as your case moves forward.
