If you have been injured in a car or motorcycle accident anywhere in Florida that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you deserve to get paid for the suffering you have endured. The cost of medical bills and getting your vehicle back in shape can be extremely expensive. Since the accident was not your fault, you should not be responsible for paying for medical attention, lost time at work, and more. At Katz and Katz, we are here to help and guide you through the entire process with compassion and respect.
Slip and Fall incidents can be catastrophic. If you or someone you know has been injured as the result of a slip, trip, or fall, please contact us to see if you have a case.
If you've been injured, please remember that evidence collection is very important. Sometimes when people slip, trip, or fall, they are embarrassed or will be in so much pain that they will just get up and try to go about their business. Then minutes, hours, or even days later, injuries can become apparent and pain levels may increase. By that time, it may be too late to gather the appropriate information to make a claim.
If you are injured as the result of a slip, trip, or fall accident, you should try to take pictures and video of the entire area where the incident occurred. Sometimes, there may be wet floor signs. Sometimes signs appear after the slip, trip or fall incident. You should also be sure to report the incident to someone in charge of the location where the incident occurred and ask for the names (first and last) of witnesses and employees and managers. In the event there is video surveillance, you will want to make sure to request it quickly. Sometimes video surveillance is only kept for a short period of time and then destroyed or recorded over. You should also be sure to keep your clothing and the shoes you were wearing and keep them in the same condition they were in at the time of the incident. If you need medical attention, get it as soon as possible.
Some people are afraid to go to the doctor because they don’t have money to pay for it. However, many business establishments carry insurance that will cover medical bills for persons injured on their premises. We can help you find the available insurance so that you are able to seek necessary medical attention.
When your home, property or business suffers damage you may want to make a claim with your insurance company. If you’ve tried to read your insurance policy to see what is or is not covered, you already know that these policies are very confusing and convoluted. Sometimes it can seem the exclusions have exclusions and the exceptions have exceptions.
Similarly, when making homeowner's claims, homeowners often do not know or understand the details of their policies, and consequently, their rights under the law. Homeowners attempting to present their own claims may not fully comprehend that they may be entitled to compensation for additional living expenses, and that they are allowed to obtain independent quotes for damage.
At Katz & Katz P.A., we know that navigating the often unclear process of filing a property insurance claim can be intimidating. Policyholders often face difficult issues and complex decisions after they suffer a property loss. Unfortunately, this is when bad decisions are sometimes made. These decisions can have long lasting effects. Claims must be reported in a timely manner, but they must be reported correctly and sometimes using the wrong words when reporting a claim can cause loss of coverage. These decisions and issues can arise during and after the claim is filed. This is why it is best to contact us immediately to discuss your problems, your options, and how we can best help you.
