Going The Extra Mile

Slip and Fall & Premises Liability LawyerMelbourne, Palm Bay, Cocoa Beach, and Titusville Florida

Premises liability handles cases involving personal injury while on someone else’s property. Common premises liability claims include Slip and Fall / Trip and Fall injuries, Negligent Security and Dog Bites. Under these laws, it is the property owner’s responsibility to implement safeguards and provide a secure and harmless environment for guests on their property.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and Fall accidents result from a dangerous or harmful condition such as wet floors, poorly lighted steps, un-even walkways, and other hidden flaws or related defects on a property. Since property owners are responsible for maintaining safe premises and are obligated to warn visitors of potential hazards, they can be held liable for injuries that occur due to unsafe conditions on their property.

While many people tend to make light of a slip and fall accident, the consequences of a fall can be severe. Such an accident may result in a serious or debilitating injury; such as herniated or bulging discs, fractures, breaks, broken bones, a head injury, brain injury, spinal cord injury, neck injury, back injury, shoulder injury, knee injury, and muscle and ligament injury.

Negligent Security

In addition to the maintenance of property to avoid slip and falls, it is also the responsibility of the property owner to provide adequate security to avoid individuals from getting attacked or victimized on their property. Adequate security would include proper lighting, security patrols, and security hardware—such as video cameras and alarm systems.

Attacks occurring at places like apartments, hotels and motels, condominiums, bars, college and university dormitories and campuses, shopping centers and malls, private clubs, amusement parks and other public areas or buildings may lead to a negligent security claim. And although injuries may have been caused by a criminal, you may still have the right to pursue compensation from a property owner who could have prevented the incident by providing proper security.

Dog Bites

Dog bites can be a terrifying experience and represent some of the most traumatic physical injuries that an individual can suffer, especially in children. Often a bite will result in permanent scarring, nerve damage and a significant risk of infection. And in many cases there is psychological harm that will sometimes exceed beyond the physical injury. In Florida, the law states that the owner is fully responsible for all damages to the victim caused by the dog. Claims can also be made against someone who negligently entrusted a dog to another person who could not control it, like a child.

Sometimes there is question about what actions are taken against the dog. In most cases where the victim did not suffer a brutal attack, the dog is quarantined for a few days—frequently at the dog owner’s home. However, if the attack is brutal, the local animal control authority or court may issue orders requiring that the dog be confined or put to sleep.
