Premises Liability  Help Is Just a Call Away

Palm Beach County Premises Liability Lawyer

Premises liability encompasses a broad area of personal injury law pertaining to injuries caused by poorly maintained and/or dangerous property. The most common premises liability cases involve slip and fall accidents and trip and fall accidents, but premises liability also covers dog bites, negligent security, and swimming pool accidents. Bottom line: if there was something perceivably unsafe—whether a thing, animal, or circumstance—that created a hazardous situation which resulted in you being injured, you may have a premises liability claim. Making a premises liability claim can help ensure you receive fair compensation for the injuries you sustained while improving the safety of our community for everyone. Contact our experienced Palm Beach County premises liability lawyers, we can assist you today.

Florida Slip & Fall Accident Law

Florida has a specific law on the books pertaining to slip and fall accidents, which states exactly what a slip and fall victim must prove to recover compensation from a business establishment. Namely, the injured person must show that the business had actual or constructive knowledge of the dangerous condition and should have acted to remedy it. Constructive knowledge means the dangerous condition existed for such a length of time that, in the exercise of ordinary care, the business should have known of the condition, or the condition occurred with regularity and was therefore foreseeable.

An experienced Florida premises liability attorney knows how to prove constructive knowledge, especially for businesses where spills and obstructions are likely to occur, like restaurants and stores. If you fell and were injured while in a business establishment due to a dangerous condition, Smith, Ball & Báez Injury Lawyers is here to help you.

Other Premises Liability Accidents

In addition to slip and fall accidents and trip and fall accidents, premises liability law covers many other property-related accidents and injuries, such as:

  • Elevator and escalator accidents
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Amusement park accidents
  • Dog bites and animal attacks
  • Water leaks or flooding
  • Toxic fumes or chemicals
  • Inadequate security, lighting, and/or other safety precautions leading to injury or assault

Often, Florida courts take different tacks when deciding premises liability cases, based on what is deemed a foreseeable hazard. For example, some Florida courts have held gas stations in high-crime neighborhoods accountable for assaults occurring on their property, while others have not, arriving at the conclusion the gas station couldn’t control the incident. Smith, Ball & Báez Injury Lawyers knows how to accurately assess premises liability cases to lead our clients in the right direction for obtaining compensation.
