Hiring a Slip and Fall Lawyer in Parkland
Handling fall accident cases requires an attorney with extensive knowledge and skill in that area. The average personal injury attorney may not know that these cases might require an architect, or a person who has expertise in a particular subject in testifying or explaining to the jury why, for example a mat, or carpeting was necessary, or that a drink dispenser should not of been in that area where it was allowing spillage onto the floor.
In previous cases we have used tile experts, national flooring experts, experts that invented floor cleaning methods, and experts in basically every aspect of every type of slip and fall. For example, we hired botany professors to testify about the dangers of having mold and mildew on the floor especially when it is wet.
Many people are under the impression that if you fall on somebody’s property, the property owner is automatically responsible for the accident. However, that is not the case. Under Florida Law, the individual involved in the accident must prove that the person responsible for maintaining the premises was negligent. Simply falling on someone’s property is not enough to guarantee you will win. Hiring a lawyer who knows how to attain that settlement is what you need.
Attorney Dan Cytryn, the founder and head attorney of our firm, has over 40 years handling personal injury cases in several practice areas including slips, trips, and falls. Additionally, Cytryn has handled close to 100 trials and more than 20 appeals, many of which have resulted in million dollar plus jury verdicts.
He has been recognized as a Super Lawyer, is AV rated by Martindale Hubbell, has a rating of 10 with AVVO’s website, and is a Board Certified Civil Trial lawyer. Only a little more than 1% of lawyers have this title and it takes peer recognition, trial experience and a number of other standards required by the Florida Supreme Court to attain.
Mr. Cytryn has lectured at many attorney organizations regarding personal injury law including topics related to slip and fall cases such as, “Is Your Slip and Fall Case Slipping Away to Nothing?," and "Slip and Trip and Falls - Should we be Taking These Cases?" He has also written articles that have been published for several magazines and newsletters.
Having been appointed by the President of the Florida Bar to the Florida Bar’s Civil Procedure Rules Committee, Mr. Cytryn has served for that committee on and off for ten years. The Civil Procedure Rules Committee makes the rules governing the procedure for civil court proceedings which must be followed by all judges and lawyers.
Mr. Cytryn is a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), a nationwide organization with 6,000 trial attorneys. In order to become a member of ABOTA, a trial attorney must be invited to join, meet strict admission requirements, and have been deemed by the organization to have a high level of integrity and personal character.
