Miami Premises Liability Lawyers
Fighting for the Justice You Deserve
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 you were injured on someone else's property as a result of hazardous conditions, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim under the legal concept of premises liability.
However, just because you were injured on a property does not automatically put the owner or manager at fault. Some type of negligence must have occurred; negligence or wrongdoing is the basis for any personal injury claim.
These cases can be complicated, which is why you should get legal guidance from a professional experienced in this area of law.

Important Elements of a Premises Liability Case
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 they failed to uphold.
In order to establish negligence, you must be able to show that:
- 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; and
- This hazard then led to your accident and subsequent injuries.
Various types of safety issues could fall under the umbrella of premises liability.
Common safety issues and scenarios leading to premises liability claims include:
- Accidents involving escalators and elevators
- Wet, slippery, or greasy floors
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Building code violations
- Broken floor tiles or torn carpeting
- Unstable decks, balconies, or stairs
- Inadequate supervision at daycares
- Inadequate security resulting in assault
- Exposure to toxic fumes
- Uncleared snow or ice
- Drowning in swimming pools
- Accidents at amusement parts
- Gas leaks
- Fires or explosions
Injuries can occur both inside and outside a property, which may include:
- Retail stores
- Movie theaters
- Office buildings
- Apartment buildings
- Sports arenas
- Shopping malls
- Hotels and resorts
- Financial institutions
- Public sidewalks
- Parking garages
- Private homes
If you were injured as a result of negligence, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages or earning capacity, and other pertinent losses.
