About Premises Liability Law In Florida
You have an expectation that you are in a safe and secure environment when you go to a department store, a grocery store, a convenience store or a parking lot. The proprietors of places that are open to the public are supposed to provide for your safety by posting adequate security, keeping the ground clean of clutter, debris, liquids or other hazards, and making sure that there is appropriate lighting and signage.
If the party who is responsible for keeping a premise safe fails to do so, and someone is hurt because of that negligence, then the proprietor is liable for the injured person’s damages. Common premise accidents include:
- Slip-and-fall accidents on slick surfaces or because of debris on walkways
- Dog bites and other animal attacks
- Falling item injuries
- Assaults and batteries from patrons or employees
- Car collisions in parking lots or parking garages
- Equipment and machinery accidents
- Public and hotel swimming pool accidents
- Dram shop incidents (related to the serving of alcohol)
If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall or another type of accident, contact the Florida personal injury lawyers of the Law Office of Craig Gibbs. We can help get you the compensation that you need to pay your doctors’ bills and hospital bills and make up for your past and future lost wages or lost income.
