If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a dangerous condition on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to bring a claim for financial compensation. Florida property owners have a duty to maintain their properties in a reasonably safe condition so as to prevent injuries to customers, guests, and other visitors. Premises liability cases, often referred to as “Slip & Fall” or “Trip & Fall” cases, actually involve a wide-range of cases involving various injuries due to the negligence of a property owner. Premises liability cases can involve serious injury, or even death, to the victim.
These accidents are often due to dangerous conditions inside a business or residence, along stairs, roadways, sidewalks, ramps, or on construction sites. Victims who are injured as a result of criminal activity or violence while on someone else’s property also may be able to bring a claim due to the property owner’s failure to provide adequate security.
The lawyers of Syprett Meshad are experienced in representing victims in premises liability claims and lawsuits in Florida, such as injuries resulting from:
- Wet or Slippery Floors
- Falling Objects
- Inadequate Lighting
- Defective Flooring
- Uneven Pavement
- Unsafe Stairs or Stairwells
- Concealed Holes or Other Obstacles
- Violations of Construction Standards
- Negligent Security
- Improper Warnings or Failure to Warn
- Sidewalk Injuries
- Construction Sites
- Other Dangerous Conditions
Victims in these types of accidents often suffer serious and debilitating injuries, and experience a slow, painful, and incomplete recovery. To present a premises liability claim, it is imperative that a thorough investigation be undertaken as soon as possible after the accident. Evidence of the condition must be preserved, witnesses must be contacted, and insurance companies must be notified. Often it is necessary to hire an expert to investigate the scene to determine whether applicable building, construction and/or safety regulations have been violated. If you or a loved one has been injured on someone else’s property, it is important for you to contact an attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights.
