IS YOUR INJURY RELATED TO AN UNSAFE PROPERTY?
Property owners in all states are required to make a reasonable effort in maintaining a safe environment for visitors
However, whether you have a case, who is liable, and how much you can claim varies.
Some common scenarios that can give rise to a premises liability case include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Swimming pool injuries
- Snow and ice accidents
- Dog bites
- Inadequate property maintenance
- Fires or explosions
- Toxic chemical exposure
- Inadequate building security
In the state of Florida, the claims will be made against either the property owner or whoever has control over the property and is therefore responsible for maintaining the safety of the property.
To win a premises liability claim, the plaintiff will need to prove these 4 conditions:
- The property owner or manager owed the plaintiff a duty of care.
- The property owner or manager breached the duty of care owed to the plaintiff.
- This breach caused the plaintiff to suffer injuries.
- These injuries resulted in real damage to the plaintiff.
If you believe you have a premises liability case against a property or business owner in the state of Florida, it is important that you thoroughly document the conditions that led to your injuries and associated treatment costs, lost wages, and any other consequences to you and your family.
Do not wait for insurance or the negligent party to cover the cost of your injuries. Gather detailed information about your claim and talk to a premises liability attorney who will aggressively advocate for you.
