Premises Liability  Help Is Just a Call Away

Palm Beach Gardens Premises Liability Lawyer

Premises liability covers a broad area of personal injury law. When someone does not properly maintain their property and you are injured, you may have the right to claim damages. Did you slip and fall while in the grocery store? Get bit by a dog at the neighbor’s house? These are just two examples of potential Florida premises liability cases we handle at Smith, Ball & Báez Injury Lawyers. If you believe you might have a valid injury claim, it’s time to speak with our knowledgeable Palm Beach Gardens premises liability lawyers.

Slip and Fall Accidents in Florida

If you slip and fall on someone else’s property, whether it’s residential or commercial, you will have to prove liability to the part of the property owner or caretaker before you can collect for damages. You must show that the business or person was aware there was a hazard or dangerous condition and should’ve remedied it. To prove constructive knowledge of the danger in question, you must provide evidence that:

  • The dangerous condition existed long enough that the business knew or should’ve known about the problem; or
  • The dangerous condition was a regular problem and should’ve been predictable.

If someone spilled something in the aisle of the grocery store 30 seconds before you walked by, the store likely had no idea there was a problem. If the spill was from the morning and you were shopping in the evening, that is a premises liability claim. When there is a known hazard, the store must clean it up or at least put up warning signs until it is remedied.

Examples of Florida Premises Liability Claims

Slip and fall accidents are just one type of premises liability case we routinely represent clients for. Some other property-related accidents and injuries include:

  • Swimming pool accidents;
  • Dog bites and other animal attacks;
  • Escalator and elevator accidents;
  • Flooding or water leaks;
  • Amusement park accidents;
  • Negligent security;
  • Inadequate lighting;
  • Toxic chemicals or fumes; and
  • Other safety hazards that lead to injury or assault.

Premises liability claims are typically very complex. You should not attempt to pursue a claim on your own. Because there is a high number of fraudulent claims filed, most insurers are very skeptical of slip and fall claims. If you plan to pursue a claim for damages, you need an experienced Palm Beach Gardens premises liability attorney on your side.

Your attorney will also be able to help you determine what laws apply in your particular case. For example, Florida swimming pool owners are required to comply with specific swimming pool safety laws. That means the pool owner must have a pool cover or a four-foot-high fence to deter people from coming on their property and getting injured or drowning in the pool.
