Every year, hundreds of people are hurt in accidents on property around Miami, including shops, restaurants, office buildings, apartment complexes, and others. In some of the incidents, the hazardous conditions that cause slip and fall injuries are linked to building code violations. While the Miami-Dade County Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources may issue a citation, the most an offender receives as punishment is usually a fine.
If you are a victim of such an accident, this fine is little consolation for the losses you suffer. Fortunately, you do have rights, and a Miami slip and fall accidents lawyer can assist with your claim. Plus, you may find it useful to review some general information on these cases.
