MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 07/11/13 -- The North Miami slip and fall attorneys at Bernstein & Maryanoff have been representing clients who were wrongfully injured because of the negligent and reckless actions of others for 30 years. The firm handles cases involving slip and fall accidents, premises liability, traffic accidents of all types, nursing home abuse and neglect and cases involving sexual abuse. The attorneys at the firm hereby announce that they have successfully negotiated a settlement with regards to a Florida personal injury lawsuit that was filed after an accident that was allegedly caused by the defendant's failure to properly maintain a safe business location.

Specifically, this lawsuit was filed in the Circuit Court of the 11th Judicial District in and for Miami-Dade County, Florida. The case was sent to the General Jurisdiction Division and it was assigned a case number of 06-24285 CA 06. The lawsuit was filed in an effort to recapture losses that the plaintiff, who was an individual male, had incurred as a result of a slip and fall accident that was allegedly the fault of the defendant, a local automobile dealership.

According to the court documents associated with the case, the plaintiff was lawfully on the premises of the defendant's place of business that is located within the borders of Miami-Dade County, and he was there for the purpose for which the general public is invited onto the property. As he walked across the property of the defendant, he allegedly encountered liquid on the floor. He did not see the liquid and he slipped and fell, badly injuring his leg in the process.

The court documents went on to allege that: (1) there was a dangerous condition present on the premises of the defendant; (2) the defendant either knew or should have known about this dangerous condition; (3) the defendant did not take steps to remove this dangerous condition nor did the defendant adequately warn foreseeable invitees of its presence; and (4) the presence of this dangerous condition caused the slip and fall accident and the injuries and losses suffered by the plaintiff.

Rather than fully litigate the matter, the North Miami slip and fall attorneys at Bernstein & Maryanoff were able to successfully negotiate a settlement with the members of the defense. The parties also executed a confidentiality agreement as part of the bargain, and this confidentiality agreement bars anyone associated with the case from disclosing any of the details relating to the settlement. The case has since been dismissed and the matter is now considered closed.
