They never got to go to trial. I have found the government to be an aggressive litigator/stubborn defendant.

Each case is different and it will depend on the facts in a particular case, but most Florida governmental entities take a tough stand on personal injury cases in general and slip and fall cases in particular.

In my experience most government entities will take a hard line stance to most issues. In addition, depending on exactly what occurred in your case, if it is a slip and fall the initial burden lies with you the plaintiff. I would recommend contacting a local injury attorney that handles these types of cases to discuss the details. It's always better to know your available options and make a informed decision, rather than wait and have time run out.
