Landlords and premises liability

Burglaries and assaults are starting to become all too common for some apartment tenants in Florida.

Here is what you need to know if you have been involved in a slip and fall accident

If you have been in an accident and have incurred medical expenses or lost income as a result, there may be a chance you have a claim for damages.
