The Landau Law Group Handles Many Types of Fort Pierce Premises Liability Cases
Accidents happen everywhere. When a property owner or occupier does not hold up their responsibility to identify and remove hazards from their property as soon as possible, injuries can result. Slip and fall incidences are just one of the many accidents that happen in Fort Pierce.
Every year thousands of people find themselves in hospitals because of preventable injuries. In some of these cases, the injured victim has the right to hold the property owner liable for their medical bills, lost wages, and more. Let us review your case and explain your rights.
We take on a wide variety of premises liability cases, including injuries caused by:
- Slip and fall hazards such as spills
- Trip hazards including obstructed walkways
- Uneven stairs or unmarked steps
- Poor lighting
- Missing or broken handrails
- Dog bites
- Diving or swimming pool accidents
- Electrical hazards
- Holes, broken sidewalks, and other property neglect
Let the Landau Law Group Investigate Your Fort Pierce Premises Liability Case
For more than 15 years, the Landau Law Group has fought for the rights of the injured. Over the years, countless individuals and families have turned to our team for help holding a negligent property owner liable. Let us take on your case next.
To prove the property owner acted negligently and failed to prevent your injuries, we will need to collect evidence to show:
- There was a known hazard; and
- They failed to address the hazard as quickly as possible
It is often impossible for us to prove the owner, occupier, or one of their employees knew about the hazard. Luckily, we do not have to prove they were aware of it. We need to show that a “reasonable person” would have been informed the hazard existed. In addition, we need to show the hazard caused your injuries and the damages you suffered.
As a part of our investigation into your accident, we will:
- Survey the scene and take pictures when possible
- Obtain any pictures, video, or other documentation of the hazard
- Request reports from first responders
- Interview eyewitnesses
- Work with medical experts to understand your injuries and ongoing care needs
- Document your damages, collecting bills, receipts, and other proof
Once we conclude our investigation, we should have a strong case that includes the evidence we need to pursue compensation during settlement negotiations or a civil lawsuit. This case may allow us to reach a fair out-of-court settlement in your case or we may need to present your case to a Judge and ask for a verdict and monetary award.

Contact Us Today to Get Started Right Away
You only have a limited time to take legal action against a negligent property owner thanks to Florida’s statute of limitations. Once the statute of limitations runs out in your case, the court will likely prevent us from filing a civil suit to pursue compensation. For this reason, and because evidence may disappear, we like to get started on these cases as soon as possible.
Even if you are still undergoing treatment, we can begin our investigation into your accident. Once your injuries stabilize, or we have a better understanding of your prognosis and ongoing and future care needs, we can take legal action and pursue the payout you deserve.
