Many people know they may have a claim if they slip and fall in a Pembroke Pines store or are injured in a public space or a commercial property. However, many people assume they don’t have a claim if they are injured in their own home. This is not always the case, and you may want to investigate whether you have a claim, since the costs of an injury can be significant. Seeking financial recovery can help you defray some of these costs.
Common Pembroke Pines Home Injury Claims
Keep in mind that some of the injuries you sustain in your home may be covered by some form of insurance you have. If you are having a hard time getting fair benefits from your insurer or aren’t sure if an insurance offer is fair, you can always call Flaxman Law Group at 1-866-352-9626 (1-866-FLAXMAN) for a free consultation to see if we can help.
In addition to your own insurance coverage, you may have a personal injury claim if you were injured in your home if you have a:
- Products liability claim: You may have a products liability claim from a Pembroke Pines injury if an unsafe product caused your injury at home. For example, if a poorly designed or made piece of furniture fell over and caused injury or if an appliance overheated and caused injury, you may have a claim.
- A claim against a third-party contractor: You may have professionals building a deck, repairing your electrical wiring, installing appliances, and otherwise caring for your home. These professionals should always be certified and insured. If they or their contractors or subcontractors are negligent and you are injured by falling tiles, a collapsing deck, electrical wiring, or any other subpar work, you may have a claim.
- A claim against other third parties: In Florida, you have a claim if someone’s negligence caused your injuries. If you’re at home and you’re injured by a drunk driver who crashes into your property, for example, you may have a claim against that motorist.
It is not always clear whether you have a claim. If you think you may have been injured by a third party, it is best to speak with a personal injury attorney immediately following your injury. Once you sign insurance documents, you may lose the chance to file a third-party lawsuit, so you will want to review all your options before you make any decisions. An experienced attorney can review your situation and can help you understand whether you have a third-party claim or whether you can seek benefits from an insurer.
