Florida injury lawyers—slip and fall, dog bites, and other property accidents

You should never have to suffer as a result of someone else’s negligence. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for people to sustain injuries on someone else’s property because they failed to maintain it properly. A small mistake from a property owner can cost someone their mobility, livelihood, or even their life.

 

If you’ve fallen victim to an injury while on someone else’s property, you don’t have to endure the pain, medical bills, or loss of mobility without compensation. A trusted and experienced premises liability attorney can help you earn the settlement you deserve.

Common Locations Where Premises Liability Claims Can Occur

Any time a property owner neglects to maintain their property and an accident occurs there’s a chance for a premises liability claim. Whether the property is personal or commercial doesn’t matter. Most often, the owner of the property is the person responsible if a person is injured or killed on their property from no fault of their own. 

 

These are the most common locations where premises liability claims occur:

Homes

Business buildings

Retail and grocery stores

Apartments/Condominiums

Restaurants/Bars

Parking lots

Property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises safe so others do not get injured. When dangerous conditions cause an injury, the owner of the premises may be subject to a premises liability claim. All property owners must maintain the property they own in a reasonably safe condition.
