An insurance adjuster may try to settle your case before you hire an attorney and before you even know the full extent of the injuries you sustained. If you do not know the full extent of your injuries, you cannot know the value of your case.

Premises liability are cases that involve falls on property of an owner and/or renter. Depending on the condition that caused the fall and location of fall, it can result in serious injury. Determining the property owner’s liability takes an attorney experienced with premises liability cases.

Premises Liability in Florida Case:

Property owners have a duty maintain premises in a reasonably safe condition. The care that a property owner is obligated to in Florida really depends on the affiliation or connection the injured person has to the property. For instance, under Florida law a property owner that manages a business is liable if the injuries sustained were caused by a hazard that was known and not repaired and/or for not placing out proper warnings to its invitees. They have a legal duty to maintain a safe environment for their customers. Business properties include stores, restaurants, apartment buildings, recreational properties and theme parks.

Dangers and Hazards:
Dangerous environments considered to be hazardous can be a substance on the floor, varied elevations of sidewalks, entrances, indoor flooring, items obstructing aisles or walkways, and improper lighting. Premises liability cases can also include injury sustained from dog bites or an assault on the property.

What You Should Do After You Have Sustained Injury:
If have endured a fall and injury on property, we recommend that you never say anything that would indicate the fall was your fault or due to your own negligence.

Report the incident to management if you fell at a business and obtain a copy of the incident report.

You should proceed to obtain medical treatment so your injuries are documented and treated. We recommend you keep all receipts for medical treatment, medications and any out of pocket expenses that result from the incident.

It is the injured person’s burden of proof to prove that the property was in an unreasonably dangerous condition. Proper testing of surfaces and in depth analysis of multiple building codes are paramount to meeting the burden of proof.
