"Dedicated to our clients' rights..."

Van Riper & Nies Attorneys combine hard work, experience and compassion to bring a unique perspective as we fight for justice for our clients.

Van Riper & Nies Attorneys, P.A., a military veteran-owned law firm with offices in West Palm Beach, Stuart, Jensen Beach and Deerfield Beach, represents individuals and families who have suffered an injury, or lost loved ones, due to the carelessness of premises owners.  Our motto is that we leave no stone unturned in the prosecution of injury claims for our clients.  

We are unique as a plaintiff's law firm. Attorney, Tim Nies, is a military veteran, having served with the U.S. Army's elite Airborne Rangers until he sustained a career-ending knee injury, and a former insurance company defense lawyer. Attorney Christian Van Riper is a former prosecutor. 

Tim and Christian can be powerful advocates for those injured in any premises liability matter, including: 

  • Narrow stairways;
  • Improperly designed stairs;
  • Inadequate stair handrails;
  • Slippery and dangerous flooring;
  • Water, oil, or other liquids left on a floor;
  • Obstructed or blocked store aisles;
  • Misplaced or falling merchandise;
  • Inadequate or improper lighting;
  • Improperly designed and unsafe balconies;
  • Torn or loose carpeting

In Florida, a business or property owner has a duty to exercise reasonable care in the maintenance of their property, as well as to warn its visitors of hidden hazards that exist and might cause a slip and fall.  The business or property owner may be liable and responsible for a slip and fall accident when they fail to reasonably maintain their property and/or when they fail to adequately warn visitors of any hidden hazards. 

Our trial attorneys have the litigation experience and resources, including investigators and expert witnesses, to skillfully represent clients injured on unsafe or dangerous property. 

Slip or trip and falls may result in serious injuries, such as neck and back injuries, head injuries, knee injuries, such as a torn ACL or meniscus,  shoulder injuries, such as a torn rotator cuff, ankle fractures and  other broken bones,  and wrongful death.

Our attorneys will seek, on your behalf, complete and fair compensation for all damages and monetary losses, including immediate medical care and future medical care, lost wages, future lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.  We work on a contingent basis, which means we do not collect a fee unless we collect damages by way of settlement or a jury trial.
