Seek an Experienced Premises Liability Attorney for Property-Related Injuries

Slip and Fall

Premises liability law holds property owners responsible for making reasonable efforts to keep their premises free from safety hazards. Insufficient lighting on stairs, uneven or wet floors, or debris on walkways can lead to slip and fall accidents, which can result in severe and sometimes fatal injuries. If an accident is caused by a dangerous condition the property owner or occupant should have corrected, this is considered negligence and liability may be found. Accident victims should report the accident, photograph any evidence, and seek medical treatment right away. You should also consult an experienced premises liability attorney at Chanfrau & Chanfrau as soon as possible.

Dog Bites

As many as 800,000 Americans are attacked by a dog each year, and many of these victims are children. A vicious dog can quickly inflict catastrophic injury or even death, especially on a small child. Like many states, Florida imposes "strict liability" on dog owners if their animal bites or mauls a human, whether the attack takes place in a public place or on the owner's property. Dog bite victims deserve to be compensated for their injuries and emotional damage. If you or a family member fall victim to a dog attack, seek medical attention immediately and contact Chanfrau & Chanfrau for a free consultation.

Negligent Security

If a shopping center or other business parking lot is known to be a site of violent crime, a need for security arises. A property owner can be held liable for assaults that take place on property that is unprotected despite known criminal activity. Customers, visitors, and apartment building residents have a right to expect the premises to be as safe as possible, and bright lights, security cameras, or guards may be a necessity when crime is anticipated. Victims of crime that can be attributed to the negligence of the property owner should contact a premises liability law firm such as Chanfrau & Chanfrau. We offer a free consultation and represent clients on a contingency fee basis.

Toxic Mold

With our humid weather, Florida residences and businesses are very susceptible to developing a mold problem. Mold growth can be caused by a leaky roof or pipe, or previous flooding. Growing unnoticed inside walls and under floors, mold can sometimes be a health hazard. Black mold is especially toxic, and can cause severe illness and even death. If you or your family have suffered property losses and health problems due to mold, you may be eligible for compensation. Property liability cases regarding toxic mold may include claims against contractors and suppliers of building materials that caused or contributed to the problem.
