Generally speaking, property owners have a duty to make sure that their properties are safe for visitors. For example, property owners should clean up spills, remove trip hazards, maintain parking lots, maintain sufficient lighting, or even hire and pay qualified security guards if necessary.
If a visitor is injured on someone else’s property, he or she may seek to bring a lawsuit against the property owner with a Tallahassee personal injury attorney with experience in this particular field. The body of law that addresses these types of suits is known as premises liability law.
The most common types of premises liability accidents include:
- Slip and Falls
- Trip and Falls
- Drowning or Swimming Pool Accidents
- Assault Due to Negligent Security
- Elevator/Escalator Accidents
In a Florida premises liability case, you may receive compensation for the following:
- medical bills
- pain and suffering
- lost wages and even
- wrongful death
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury on another’s property, you may be able to file a premises liability claim. Call Tallahassee Personal Injury lawyer Amber Hall today for a free consultation.
