Free Help With Property Damage

If you’ve been researching lawyers in the area, in search of the right one for your unique situation – you quickly discover with only a few phone calls that most law firms don’t help their personal injury clients with things like vehicle repairs. We have never understood this. Truth be told, most firms do not want to deal with the ‘headache’ of property damage claims because they are not paid to do so.

That is because most contingency agreements provide that the attorney is only paid on the recovered personal injury related losses. We operate differently, – we help our personal injury clients with their property damage losses – for free. We never charge a client for their property damage recovery settlement. We pride ourselves on helping our clients to the very best of our ability and helping to alleviate as many burdens as possible.

MEET JAY

Meet Jay M. Wasserman

Meet the ‘W’ of KWBR law firm – Mr. Jay M. Wasserman, Attorney at Law. Jay manages all personal injury and wrongful death litigation for the firm, as that is his scope of expertise. Jay was born and raised in South Florida – a true native of Florida, his passion lies in helping those in need close to home. Mr. Wasserman grew up in a working-class home; his father, an accountant for a non-profit and his mother, a homemaker. Jay’s mother and father worked together to raise him and his brother and sister, with emphasis on the importance of working hard, respecting others, education and integrity. Jay’s parents always made a point to put their family first; they made it a daily requirement to sit down as a family each night at the dinner table and share what each had learned that day. Although Jay and his family had little money; Jay’s parents somehow found a way to support him in his educational endeavors. With their love and support, Jay attended Georgetown University for two summers while he was still in high school studying communication, debate and argumentation. While studying, Jay worked as a bus boy; washing dishes to help save for college. Jay attended the University of Chicago and studied economics. He then earned a scholarship and attended the University of Miami School of Law. Like the Firm’s co-founder, and Jay’s personal best friend, Steve Katzman, Jay understands the importance of loyalty and commitment. Jay is happily married to his wife Debbie of 31 years and has three daughters. Jay makes a point to treat all of his colleagues as family. He values spending time with his family and knows the time and dedication that it takes to be a good husband and father. Jay stresses the need for his employees to take the time off to attend their children’s school events and dance recitals, to take the time off to celebrate special anniversaries and birthdays with their families. Many KWBR colleagues have young children and Jay encourages them to work hard; both for the firm and for their families. Many of Jay’s staff have been with him for nearly two decades. Family is key to Jay, as well as the firm and its staff. This dedication extends to the firm’s clients. Prior to founding the KWBR Fort Lauderdale law firm with Steve Katzman; Jay previously worked with the prestigious firm of Weil, Gotshal and Manges – a international law firm. Jay then formed his own law firm nearly thirty years ago to focus solely on his personal injury practice. He is truly an expert in handling Personal Injury and Wrongful Death claims.

Frequently Asked Questions

My Slip & Fall, or Premises Liability injury took place at a store; can I receive compensation?

The details of each case vary, as no two are alike. The specifics of the individual case will ultimately determine if recovery is owed. However, public places, such as stores, are responsible to keep floors and walkways clean and safe for the public. Property owners and their employees should have policies and procedures that control the frequency and method to keep the store or public space clean and space. Public facilities and businesses should have a system in place that involves routinely checking the safety and maintenance of the building and property. For example, if something slippery on the floor causes an individual to fall and the person that fell hurt themselves, and it can be proven that the property owner or employee was aware that the hazardous spot was in existence, or did not follow protocol, the injured person may have a case and be able to receive compensation for the damages incurred. Further, if a store employee caused the dangerous condition to occur, the store may be similarly liable for damages to the injured person. This is a complex area and we urge you to contact us immediately. Take photographs of the area where you fell, identify, if you can, what caused you to fall and where it may have come from. Get the names and phone numbers of any witnesses. Note the names of managers that are on duty or may come to assist you. Do not wish your clothes ion the substance that caused the fall in on you. Also, do not discard the shoes you were wearing.

Over the last thirty years, we have handled many Fort Lauderdale slip and fall cases. It has been our experience that most people, when they fall, are embarrassed and are quick to leave the store and want to go home. Often, they do not realize how badly injured they are. This desire to “rush to get out of the store” often makes it much more difficult to prove the case. This is because sometimes the clients did not tell anyone that they fell, and even if they did, did not take photographs with their cell phone, get the name of a witness or try to determine what caused the fall. So we urge you to take our advice and takes pictures, look to see what caused the fall and where it may have come from, notify the manager and get witness names and phone numbers. Then call us immediately so we can help you.

When will the court hold that a property owner “should have known better” or failed to address the dangerous or hazardous area in a reasonable manner?

The jury (and in some cases a judge) will likely determine whether the property owner acted appropriately when the potential danger on their premises was not taken care of or rectified in a timely manner. This may involve many areas of inquiry such as the amount of time a reasonable person or property owner would’ve taken to remove the dangerous condition

Can I potentially file a Florida Medical Malpractice lawsuit even though my case doesn’t involve an invasive procedure or surgery?

Absolutely! Medical Malpractice claims are not limited to negligence or omission causing injury or bodily harm during an invasive surgery or procedure. Non-invasive examples of Medical Malpractice can include, but are not limited to: misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, wrong dosages of medicine administered, wrong medicine administered, failure to treat, etc.

Can I receive compensation or a settlement for my damages incurred without going to trial?

YES. Every case is unique and no two cases are alike, however, in most situations cases are settled on or agreed upon before a formal lawsuit is even filed. Further, most lawsuits are settled before the need for trial. With the help of best Fort Lauderdale, FL auto accident lawyers we can help you reach a fair settlement for damages and injuries that you may have incurred. It’s rare that a Florida automobile accident lawsuit makes it trial. Settlements are common as they are typically in the best interests of all parties to the litigation.
