In recent news, Aigen Law Firm, P.A. settled a personal injury case for a confidential settlement amount due to the negligence of a Miami property owner and landlord in failing to safely and adequately maintain a rotten and dilapidated boat dock. While out for a nighttime stroll on his boat dock in Miami, our client was injured when a rotted plank broke underneath his foot, thereby causing him to fall forward and partially through the dock. Our client was treated immediately for injuries to his elbow, knee, lower back, and neck. After several months of conservative medical treatment failed, our client ultimately opted to undergo surgery on his cervical spine. Specifically, he underwent an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion by a board certified orthopedic spine surgeon in Miami, Florida. Our client recovered a substantial award due to his injuries to compensate him for his pain and suffering and to help in paying for the future medical treatment he may need.
More About Unsafe Dock Conditions in Florida
Miami has a plethora of waterfront communities, most of which have boat docks that need regular maintenance and care. Unquestionably, rotted and dilapidated planks on a boat dock can lead to any number of serious personal injuries. Our client’s landlord was aware of the poor condition of the dock. He had even gone so far as to replace parts of it, but never finished the work or blocked off the area. Images of the dock taken immediately after our client’s accident along with the landlord’s own sworn testimony regarding lack on maintenance and incomplete repairs were key factors in proving liability on behalf of the property owner.
If you or someone you know has an accident and suffered personal injuries on a boat dock or anywhere on someone else’s property, always be sure to take pictures and record videotape as soon as possible in order to preserve evidence of the actual condition of the property.
