        “Excellent experience!”

        Excellent experience with very good results, I am very happy and satisfied with the Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice & Purtz law firm I, especially Mr. Christopher Smith who at all times during the process of my case was very honest, correct and efficient. I highly recommend this firm and this attorney because they really made a big difference to the results in my case.

        “Accident Case”

        Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice and Purtz, PA was the only law firm who would take our car accident case. Andrea Pleimling Smith was very thorough, explained everything in a very detailed fashion, and was easy to reach when questions arose. She kept us informed every step of the way. Without her, we would have suffered a severe financial loss due to an accident which was not our fault. Florida’s No Fault law is terrible and very unfair. Andrea and her team were very helpful in recouping all of the money we were required to spend!

        “Thank you again for everything”

        Thank you again for everything you did for me. Your compassion and concern was greatly appreciated. I have all the faith in the world with you by my side. If ever I know someone who needs an attorney, I will recommend your office. Everyone I had dealings with was very professional. Good job.

        Question:

        How does a warning sign affect a slip and fall claim in Southwest Florida?

        Answer:

        We had a gentleman come to us with a slip and fall in Florida, and he said, “Well, there was a ‘Slippery When Wet’ floor sign that was somewhat near me.” We told him, “You can still recover.” In Florida there is the legal principle of comparative fault. In this particular case there was an employee mopping the floor during the middle of the day and didn’t have wet floor signs. There was one that was put in an aisle near where the person fell, and the defense argued, “Well, you can’t recover because there was a ‘Wet Floor’ sign,” and that’s not the truth. The defendant was negligent in that scenario. The plaintiff can also be found partially at fault.

        If you hire an experienced attorney, they can make the appropriate arguments to show that your fault was much less than the property owner’s fault, that the property owner violated their own policies and procedures by mopping in the middle of the day; that was how this particular case went. You still have a case. You should reach out to an attorney. Sometimes attorneys that know that there’s a wet floor sign will actually turn the case back to the client and say, “You don’t have a case,” but always seek a second opinion in that regards. You can call our firm and we’ll give you that second opinion. In our estimation, those usually still make for cases even if there is a wet floor sign.
