When you legally enter upon someone else’s property by implied or express consent, the owner of that property is obligated to maintain reasonably safe conditions and to make you aware of any potential hazards. Under the law of premises liability, if the owner neglects this obligation, he or she may be held liable for any injuries that occur as a result. If you have been injured while on someone else’s property, our premises liability attorneys in Central Florida may be able to help you obtain compensation for your damages.
The law of premises liability extends to both commercial and private properties. For example, a business owner who fails to provide security guards, particularly at a location known to be dangerous, may be held liable if a violent act is visited upon a customer. Likewise, the owner of an apartment building may be held liable for damages that occur to his tenants due to his failure to provide adequate locks and other security devices. Our premises liability attorneys in Central Florida can also file claims on behalf of those who have suffered slip and fall injuries due to spills, obstructions to walkways, failure to post clear warnings of unsafe conditions, and other preventable causes.
