When you enter any property or public space as a guest or patron, you expect the facility to be safe. The owner has a responsibility to make sure that the property is properly maintained and will not cause any serious injury to you while you are there. If you have been injured on someone else’s property due to the owner’s negligence, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your damages.
The Orlando premises liability lawyers at Best Law Firm Florida P.A. have been fighting for the rights of injured victims for more than 25 years, and we can help you hold the negligent property owner accountable so that you receive the compensation you deserve.
What is Premises Liability Law?
Premises liability laws have been enacted to protect the
rights of individuals who have been injured on someone else’s property due to the property owner’s negligent maintenance of the premises. These laws require property owners and managers to maintain safe conditions at all times, and take the appropriate steps to adequately warn guests of hazardous conditions while they exist.
There are many types of accidents that can result in a valid premises liability case. Some of the most common include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Swimming pool drowning accidents
- Trampoline accidents
- Elevator accidents
- Falling merchandise at a store
- Assaults and attacks on someone else’s property
- Parking lot accidents
- Theme park accidents
- Construction accidents
Who is Liable in Premises Liability Cases?
The party in control of the property at the time of your injury can be held liable for your damages in a premises liability claim. This can include:
- Property owners
- Property managers
Premises liability laws cover injuries caused by dangerous conditions which the responsible party either knew about or should have reasonably known about, but failed to correct.
Premises liability cases can also be brought due to issues involving negligent security. Properties that are not adequately monitored can be a breeding ground for criminal activity that can result in catastrophic injury or even murder. ATMs, parking lots, bars, and apartment complexes are often locations where adequate security measures must be taken.
Attacks that occur on people’s property are often tragic. When the property owner should have reasonably known of the dangers caused by lack of proper lighting or other security features, he may be held liable for your damages.
