Premises Liability Claims in Florida
Slip & Fall Accidents
Property owners and managers are responsible for the safety of their visitors and patrons. Anyone who suffers damages or injury as a direct result of the property owner or manager's negligence is entitled to compensation. Slip and fall accidents are the most common form of premises liability and can occur in a person's home or in a store, restaurant, mall, amusement park, or other premises. When a spill or trip hazard is not properly cleared away or marked with a warning sign, an unsuspecting individual could fall and suffer serious personal injury, such as broken bones, a head injury, or a spinal cord injury.
Animal Attacks & Negligent Security Claims
Premises liability is not restricted to slip and fall accidents alone. Pet owners can also be liable for any injuries and damages that their pets cause, since pets are the property of their owners. Dog bites are the most common of these injuries and all medical expenses, pain, and suffering should be compensated by the negligent owner. Negligent security is another common cause for premises liability claims. When a shop, bank, building, parking lot, or other premises is not adequately secured with lighting, fences, alarms, and / or security guards, innocent individuals could suffer damages in a crime such as assault, robbery, or rape. These situations are also adequate grounds for a premises liability claim.
