I would not recommend this lawyer at all. I hired him because of his rating on here, and I got burned. I had a disorderly intoxication charge and called around to talk to different lawyers to see who I should hire. On the phone he seemed confident and eager to take my case and said he had worked cases like this before. But after I hired him, I realized he is incompetent and acted like he had no time for me.

This is THE Attourney to call!

After getting picked up on a DUI I called Armondo. He gave me step by step instructions on what I had to do. He approached the case from every angle, hired a PI for research on the scene. Final outcome, a reduced charge with a fine. Armondo gets my highest recommendation!

Slip and Fall Injuries: Premises Liability Lawsuits

Every year in the U.S., one million people visit emergency rooms for treatment due to injuries they suffered in a slip and fall accident and 28,000 die from their injuries. Owners of premises open to the public have a duty to keep their premises free from dangerous situations. When they breach that duty and someone slips, falls and is injured as a result, the injured party can collect for damages.
Common slip and fall and premises liability lawsuits include:

Property owners can be found negligent for not maintaining adequate lighting in stores or in parking lots, causing harm. In some cases, plaintiffs literally slipped on liquid or improperly cleaned floors and suffered serious injury as a result. Other premises liability cases include apartment complex injuries, swimming pool drownings, trampoline accidents, and much more. If you were injured on someone’s property and you believe the other party failed to maintain safe accommodations, call our lawyers today.

  • Should I Hire a Lawyer to Get Compensation for Medical Bills and Time Away from Work if I was Injured in an Accident?

You can call us to schedule a free consultation, and take comfort knowing that we only get paid if we win a settlement for you in court.

  • Who Can File a Personal Injury Claim in Florida?
    • If you have been injured in an accident, or your loved one was hurt because of someone’s negligence, the law provides a way for you to receive compensation. According to Florida civil code, you can file a claim against the person or business responsible for your injury, mental anguish, medical bills, lost wages, and/or pain and suffering. However, there are specific things that must be proven in order to establish a breach of one’s duty of care (or obligation to do what’s right). In order to collect a settlement you must prove the following about the negligent party:

      1. The person had a duty to act responsibly in a way that would not cause you harm, but did not.
      2. The failure of the person to comply with that duty is the reason why you were harmed.
      3. You were harmed or injured and suffered damages for which you are asking compensation.
  • How is a Duty of Care Breach Proven?
    • Although it might sound easy to prove that someone is at fault (or negligent), sometimes the duty of care can become more complicated than one might think. Plus, there are laws that apply to specific types of injuries that an experienced and skilled personal injury law attorney can help you with including accidents, work injuries, truck accidents, slip and falls, and dog bite cases.

  • What Damages Am I Entitled to Claim in a Personal Injury Case?
    • If you prove the other person was at fault for the accident, the damages you may be entitled to include:

      • Medical expenses related to the accident including your current expenses and any medical expenses you are expected to incur in the future.
      • Current lost wages and wages you are expect to lose in the future due to your injury.
      • Vocational rehabilitation if you are unable to return to your former employment.
      • All expenses you will now incur due to the accident such as someone to help with the housework if you are medically unable to do it yourself.
      • Your pain and suffering.
      • The value of any property that was damaged or destroyed as a result of the accident.
  • What Type of Car & Auto Accident Lawsuits Does Your Firm Handle?
  • How Much Does it Cost to Hire a PI Lawyer?
    • Most lawyers represent clients using a contingency fee structure. This means that you do not have to put a large deposit or pay a higher hourly rate for legal services. Instead, our attorneys work your case by settlement or jury verdict. If you recover a sum of money for a settlement, legal opinion or verdict, his lawyer will receive a percentage of the sum received. Usually, the average is 33 1/3 percent, but it may depend on your case.

  • When is the Deadline to File a Injury Claim in Florida?
    • In Florida, you usually have four years after the day of the accident to make a claim against the guilty or negligent party. It is extremely important that you determine which limitation applies to you as the amount of time in each case varies. For example; if you were injured in a accident, the limitation applies the aforementioned four years. But, if a loved one dies because of an accident and you are seeking a wrongful death settlement, the case has a limitation of two years from the day of the accident.
