With an increase in products being rushed to market, it is reasonable to assume that more and more of them may pose the risk of serious injuries. In fact, the U.S. Product and Safety Commission says that approximately 29.5 million injuries and 22,000 deaths can be directly traced to defective products. We believe that, when this happens, victims deserve to be compensated for their resulting medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages. Product liability laws may find all parties involved in the manufacturing, distribution and retail of a product accountable. If you believe you are the victim in a product liability case, do not hesitate to contact the experienced premises liability attorneys at Wieland Hilado & DeLattre immediately.
Accidents can occur anywhere. In the event one occurs on a premise like a shopping center, grocery store, neighbor’s house etc., immediately report all accidents and do your very best to document the area where the fall or accident occurred via pictures. If you are injured at someone’s place of business or someone’s home, the owner of the property may be responsible for injuries, medical expenses and lost wages you incur. Premises liability cases can be very complex and difficult. Just because you are injured on someone’s property does not mean the owner is necessarily responsible. Negligence has to be established first, and, though a property owner may ultimately be responsible for your medical expenses and lost wages, the owner has no obligation to pay your expenses as they are incurred.
Remember to take photos immediately, using your cell phone if necessary. Acquiring good documentation at the time of the incident may be substantial to your legal claim. Contact our team of premise liability law experts to review your case today.
I hired Al a few years ago for a workers compensation case. From the very beginning I found Al to be very knowledgeable and professional. He made sure I was aware of everything that was happening with my case from start to finish. His assistant (Melody) is also very professional and knowledgeable. I have and will continue to recommend friends and family members as I feel Al is one of the best attorneys in Florida and has exceeded my expectations.
I hired Mr. Al Hilado early February 2015 to pursue helping me apply for Social Security Disability benefits when I became disabled and was unable to continue workng. He has been very personable and professional. He told me how long it could take for the process and provided detailed information on what to expect. He was always available to take my calls or answer my emails. He was very supportive every step of the way and 3 months later in May I was approved for my disability. Without his help I’m sure I would still be fighting for my benefits instead of receiving my disability checks. I highly recommend Alfred Hilado.
