Have you been injured or assaulted in Tampa, St. Pete or Clearwater?

Have you been injured or assaulted while at a public or private space in Tampa, St. Petersburg or Clearwater? Property owners and managers in the state of Florida are required by law to provide a safe environment for customers and visitors. Unfortunately injuries and attacks happen all the time at bars, restaurants, grocery stores and hotels in the Tampa Bay area.  Businesses are required to do everything in their power to keep you safe while you are on their property.

Slip and fall/trip and fall

This is probably the most common form of injury you can sustain at a private business or public place. Injuries can often occur due to a leaky or broken machine, or inadequately maintained equipment. Most of these personal injuries could and should have been avoided if the owner or property manager had kept their equipment in good working order.

If you are injured at a bar, restaurant, or store, there are a couple things you need to do. It is extremely important that you completely document the cause of the injury in Tampa, Clearwater, or St Petersburg, and seek medical attention. If you are capable, following the injury you should pull out your phone and take photos of the area. If a cooler is leaking condensation on the floor, take as many photos as you can. You can also ask for a witness statement if someone saw the accident take place. If you were severely injured, call 911 and have an ambulance come take you to the hospital. You will also want to get an incident report from the manager or owner. Please give us a call to review your case so we can advise you of your options. Businesses carry insurance for this exact reason. If the business is at fault, they can be held liable for injuries or damages  your property. 

Attacks robbery or assaults

Attacks can happen anywhere such as a dark parking lot or alleyway. There are a couple easy and inexpensive things businesses can do to help keep you safe such as installing high resolution security cameras or investing in some lighting to keep the outside of the business illuminated. They could also hire a security staff to keep the premises safe and secure.

Unfortunately, sexual assaults are also common at hotels and motels. If you have been the victim of an assault we are very sorry that happened to you. Please give us a call so we can review the case. Holding the business responsible will force the owner to make changes to keep future incidents from happening to somebody else.
