Property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises clear of dangerous or hazardous conditions. If you were hurt at a place of business or even at a private residence, you might be able to recover compensation from the property owner by pursuing a premises liability claim. It is important to seek legal counsel to understand your options and protect your rights.
At Goldberg Noone Abraham, our attorneys have extensive experience handling personal injury matters in Florida. We take premises liability cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that you will not owe us anything unless we are successful in recovering compensation for you.
Accidents Occurring On Another Person's Property
When another person's property is poorly maintained, serious injuries can occur. Slip-and-fall accidents are common in cases involving:
- Wet or slippery floors
- Uneven flooring
- Obstructed walkways
- Debris left on floors
- Broken steps
- Loose handrails
Premises liability cases are not confined to slip-and-falls. Failure to take adequate security measures, such as having poor lighting or broken locks, can also lead to incidents resulting in severe injuries. Other dangerous conditions, such as an unsecured swimming pool, can lead to serious injuries. Dog bites and animal attacks can also result in serious injury.
If you were hurt while visiting a private residence, it is likely that the homeowner's insurance policy may cover some or all of your damages. Our lawyers know how to negotiate with insurance providers in an effort to help you secure the full and fair compensation you deserve.
