Examples of Premises Liability Cases We Handle
Here are some examples of accidents that may be premises liability claims:
- A shop customer slips on a spill on the floor
- In a store, there are goods left in an aisle where someone trips
- A display is not secured, and it falls on a patron
- Inadequate maintenance results in a broken elevator or escalator
- Loose wiring creates the risk of electrocution
- Uneven flooring, poor lighting, or objects on the ground create the risk of a fall
- Because of negligent security, someone is a victim of a violent robbery
- A dog or other animal running loose bites a visitor
There are many ways dangers may exist on property. Each case is evaluated individually. We look at what dangers were present and whether they create legal liability for the property owner. Our team builds the evidence to show what happened and how the injury occurred.
What Is the Basis of Premises Liability Claim in Florida?
There are several grounds for a premises liability claim in Florida:
- Negligently failing to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition
- Failing to correct a dangerous condition that was known or should have been known
- Not warning the victim of a hazardous condition that was known or should have been known
The grounds for liability must be the legal cause of injury to the victim.
Florida Premises Liability Law
The standard that Florida premises liability law imposes on a property owner varies based on the reason that the victim is on the property. The duty is highest for people who are invited onto someone else’s property. Public invitees, business invitees, and social guests are all owed the highest duty of care. An invitation may be express or implied.
A licensee is a person who is on the property for their own benefit. Property owners have a duty to warn a licensee of known dangers. While there is little duty owed to a trespasser, intentional harm is forbidden. For discovered trespassers, there may be legal liability for failing to warn of known dangers.
The victim’s status as an invitee, licensee, or trespasser may be critical to determining legal standards and the right to compensation. Our lawyers pursue every avenue to claim your compensation.
Transitory substances – Florida Revised Statutes § 768.0755 claims
Florida Revised Statutes § 768.0755 discusses claims involving transitory foreign substances in a business establishment. The standard is whether the property owner had actual or constructive knowledge of the danger and should have remedied it. This can be shown by the length of time the substance was there or by the substance appearing on a repeated basis.
