Injured on another's property?
If the property owner was aware of a hazard and failed to either remove it, place a fence or other barrier around it or clearly mark it with a warning sign, you will likely be able to claim compensation for your injuries. Even if the owner claims not to have known about the hazard, the courts will consider evidence that he reasonably should have been aware of it. Our Jacksonville premises liability attorneys will carefully research every aspect of your accident to discover any evidence to support your claim, and are prepared to work tirelessly to help you recover your settlement.
