Premises liability law holds property owners responsible for making reasonable efforts to keep their premises free from safety hazards. Insufficient lighting on stairs, uneven floors, or debris on walkways can lead to slip and fall accidents, which can result in severe and sometimes fatal injuries.
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 someone.

Negligent Security and Associated Risks
When shopping, visiting a public or private property, or renting a property from another party, individuals should not have to be concerned about their personal safety. In some cases, bright lights, security cameras, and security guards can be necessary to adequately secure a property. Premises liability law states that customers, visitors, and apartment building residents have a right to expect the premises to be safe. Any failure to do so can be considered professional negligence. If an assault or other violent act occurs on a commercial property as the result of negligent security, the property owner, security company, or both may be liable. This is particularly true when there is a known risk factor involved, such as a high crime rate in the area, a history of crime on the property, or specific threats against the property.
