Slip and fall accidents

Most people will suffer a slip, trip or fall accident at some point in their lives. In some cases, these accidents will be the result of another person’s negligence. When that happens, a victim might suffer injuries that are debilitating and expensive to treat. In those instances, a victim can seek compensation from the responsible party to cover medical expenses and lost income.

These accidents can happen in stores, restaurants, on public sidewalks or in private homes. They can be caused by torn carpeting, changes in flooring, poor lighting or unsafe stairs. Outdoors, ice and snow left to accumulate on walkways or parking lots can also cause dangerous slip and falls.

To have a successful slip and fall claim, it must be shown that the dangerous condition was both noticeable and avoidable. This means that a reasonable person who was taking care of the property would have discovered and addressed the dangerous condition. This is known as premises liability.

Dog bites

Dog bites can be a very serious injury. Not only can they puncture skin, but they can crush or tear muscles and soft tissues, cause damage to the nerves and bones, and even kill people.

People should see a doctor for any type of bite wound, especially if it is from a dog that they do not know or if the wound is infected (redness, swelling, heat, pus). The doctor will wash the wound thoroughly and may give antibiotics to prevent infection. They will also check for any damage to tendons, nerves and bones.

Many states have passed laws that allow the police to prosecute owners whose dogs attack other people or animals. Others have passed laws that impose liability on homeowners who allow dangerous dogs to remain on their properties. In addition, people can file civil claims to recover damages from the owner of a dangerous dog. These claims typically require the assistance of a Clearwater business litigation lawyer.

Commercial property disputes

When a business owns or leases commercial property it can be a source of disputes. Our specialist team of solicitors deal with these disputes on both sides and can assist you in finding a resolution to your problem. Some of the most common causes of these disputes are when a landlord wants to forfeit a lease and fails to follow proper procedure, or when a tenant makes a Relief from Forfeiture application. Our firm also handles a large number of claims involving construction liens where contractors or suppliers of building materials claim they have not been paid for their work.

Commercial real estate is very different to residential properties and some of the same laws do not apply to it. It is not uncommon for a dispute to arise from the purchase or sale of commercial property due to an issue such as a concealed defect. This can result in costly litigation and financial losses for a company.

Customer disputes

Owning a business comes with many challenges, beyond pleasing clients and making profits. Civil legal disputes and conflicts are inevitable, and a Clearwater business litigation lawyer can help you navigate them with favorable results. For instance, a customer may file a lawsuit against your business because they were unhappy with the product or service they received. Ryan has handled a wide variety of these cases and can help you develop a strategy to settle out of court or win a favorable verdict in trial.

The most effective way to protect your business from these issues is to consult an experienced Clearwater business law firm before a dispute arises. The team at Mauck Law will work with you to review your contracts and draft them in a manner that is protective of your interests, reduces liability exposure and prevents future civil legal claims.
