Are there alternatives to going to court in a Florida slip and fall case?

In Florida slip and fall cases there are alternatives rather than going to a full-blown jury trial. In fact, typically most cases settle without actually having to go to trial. When it comes to premises liability cases, what are referred to often times as slip and fall cases, most of them do not have to go to a full-blown trial to get a recovery for the injured party; however, probably a higher percentage than when we look at, for example, auto cases, a higher percentage of slip and fall cases do have to go into litigation, which does require actually filing a lawsuit on behalf of the injured party by an attorney.

Typically we almost always recommend that an injured party, when it comes to a slip and fall or a premises liability case, we recommend that that injured party hire an attorney immediately because more likely than not their case will have to have a lawsuit filed. As a result, getting an attorney involved always immediately is almost always a good idea.

What Our Clients Say
The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again. - M.P.
After my accident, i felt like I was being pulled in a bunch of different directions. I really didn't know what to do and all I wanted was someone to shoot me straight.

I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable - D.L.
After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court. - S.C.
