Slip and fall accidents are those which occur when someone slips, falls or trips as a result of hazardous or dangerous conditions while on someone else’s property. It is the responsibility of homeowners, businesses and property owners to ensure their property is kept in a safe condition. Accidents that occur due to negligent conditions can cause injuries that can be quite serious. Unlike car accident cases, you do not have to prove a permanent injury in a fall down case to recover damages for pain and suffering. However, 99% of the time you will need to file a lawsuit to recover these damages because the negligent property owner will not admit to being at fault. The key to winning your case is proving that the property owner created the hazardous condition or did not properly maintain the property, or knew the property was unsafe and failed to warn you. Proving your case involves digging into the facts, deposing as many people as possible, and finally getting to the truth. We enjoy working on these cases and encourage you to call us.


Car accidents make up a large part of our practice. Motor vehicle accidents claim over 100,000 lives each year and are the leading cause of brain and spinal injuries. The main fight in an automobile crash is usually over damages, negligence and causation. Negligence is typically not a factor in a rear-end situation because in Florida, there is a presumption that the rear-ending vehicle driver is negligent. At Ortiz | Kleinberg, we will gather police reports, deal with insurance companies and contact any witnesses to seek the compensation and justice that you deserve.


A wrongful death is one in which a person dies as a result of a wrongful act. These acts may include vehicular accidents, medical malpractice, dangerous or defective products, and work-related accidents. The elements of a wrongful death case are negligence, damages and causation. Generally, the victim’s immediate family members have the ability to file a wrongful death claim. At Ortiz | Kleinberg, we have the experience and resources required to litigate wrongful death lawsuits to ensure that you receive the compensation that your family deserves.
