Premises Liability Attorney St. Petersburg, Florida

We secure compensation for you and punish negligent property owners

When you slip and fall in the grocery store or twist your ankle because of the negligence of an establishment, you need the help of a trained premises liability attorney to defend your rights. The premises liability attorneys of Salter, Healy, Bassett & Rivera are well-versed in these cases, and we provide personal care throughout the legal process to ensure a positive result in your case. With nearly 30 years of combined legal experience, our dynamic trial lawyers have the know-how to get regular people results, in and out of the courtroom.

Property owners have a responsibility to maintain safe premises

Premises liability cases can be difficult to prosecute. Property owners are keen to avoid any claims of responsibility and often attempt to hide evidence that may incriminate them. However, owners have a legal obligation to maintain safe properties. If properties fall into disrepair, become havens for criminals or are otherwise unsafe, owners are liable for any injuries that occur.

As your personal injury lawyer, we take the following issues into account when analyzing your case:

  • Condition of the property
  • Acts on the property
  • Owner of the property
  • Seriousness of injury
  • Cause of the injury

By putting together the pieces of what may be an elaborate puzzle, our attorneys craft a well-rounded argument to prove negligence on the part of the premises owner. We address your claim from every possible perspective, making sure we have an airtight case to take to court.

Creating a strategic case

Many slip and fall accidents, as well as other premises liability claims, are summarily denied by the property owner until a lawsuit is filed to hold them accountable. The St. Petersburg premises liability attorneys of Salter, Healy, Bassett & Rivera know that you deserve more, and therefore we work to secure compensation such as:

  • Lost wages. If you miss work as a result of your injury, we seek compensation for your lost wages.
  • Medical coverage. Unfortunately, medical treatment can be quite expensive. We obtain compensation for your medical bills.
  • Pain and suffering. We obtain damages to compensate you for your pain and suffering.
