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 was looking for an Orlando Workers’ Comp attorney to represent me in a workers compensation case and Al Hilado was recommended by a family member. Mr. Hilado is very professional and knowledgeable in this area of law. Mr. Hilado explained everything to me and would not end a meeting until he felt I understood what was happening or had happened. I was very happy with the way he handled my case. He explained everything to me and did not try to push me in any direction as far as when I had to make decisions. Whenever I had a question, Al was a phone call away. He returned my calls and emails very quickly. His staff is extremely professional and friendly. I highly recommend Al Hilado to anyone who is injured at work and needs workers’ comp assistance.
Al Hilado is the most forthright and honest attorney I have ever dealt with – if he says he is going to do something he does it and he always kept my best interest at heart.
