West Palm Beach Premises Liability Attorney
Injured on someone else's property in Florida?
If you were injured on the property of another person due to a hazardous condition on the premises, you might have grounds for a claim or civil lawsuit against the property owner. This is generally referred to as a "premises liability" case, as it involves the liability of the owner of the premises to reasonably ensure the safety of lawful visitors. A property owner's obligation only extends so far, and certain accidents or injuries might not be covered. It is, therefore, important to discuss your options in this regard with a West Palm Beach personal injury attorney who is experienced in handling these types of claims.
Types of Premises Liability Claims
There are different situations that can cause a person injury and give that individual grounds for a premises liability claim. This might include:
In any of these situations, a person could be at risk of suffering serious physical and psychological injuries. These types of injuries could lead to financial problems caused by medical expenses and lost wages from missed work. It is possible to alleviate these issues by seeking financial compensation from the owner of the property where the accident occurred. It will be necessary, however, to prove that the owner should be held accountable due to negligence of some kind, such as a failure to properly maintain property grounds, a failure to repair an existing hazardous condition on the property, or a failure to place a warning sign that would inform visitors of the potential danger.
