Fighting for the Justice You Deserve Throughout South Florida
Any property owner or manager has a duty to provide reasonable safety for those who visit his or her premises. The premises may either be public or private. You may have been a guest, client, customer, patron, or other lawful visitor to the property. If the premises contained a hazardous condition that caused your injuries, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim under the legal concept of premises liability.
Just because you were injured on a property does not automatically put the owner or manager at fault.

Premises Liability Cases In Florida
Like any other personal injury case, in a premises liability case you must prove that the property owner owed you a reasonable duty of care which he failed to uphold through negligence while you visited the premises. Some type of unsafe condition existed that the owner or manager knew about or should have known about. He or she then failed to correct it or failed to warn you about it until the hazard could be remedied. This hazard then led to your accident and subsequent injuries.
Various types of safety issues could fall under the umbrella of premises liability. These often cause slips, trips, and falls leading to injuries.
Safety issues and scenarios leading to premises liability claim may be based on but are not limited to:
- Accidents involving escalators and elevators
- Wet, slippery, or greasy floors
- Dog bites
- Poorly maintained premises (broken floor tiles, torn carpeting, unstable decks, balconies, or stairs, potholes, broken or uneven sidewalks, inadequate or broken lighting on landings, in corridors, aisles, or stairwells)
- Inadequate security resulting in criminal assaults
- Toxic fumes
- Uncleared snow or ice
- Accidents at swimming pools
- Accidents at amusement parts
- Gas leaks
- Fires or explosions
Premises liability injuries can occur both inside and outside a property. Any property may qualify in a claim including retail stores, restaurants, movie theaters, office buildings, apartment buildings, sports arenas, malls, hotels, campuses, financial institutions, salons, public sidewalks, private homes, and more. Where negligence has occurred that led to your injuries, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages or earning capacity, and other pertinent losses.
