Premises Liability in Our Community
Palm Coast's beautiful weather and local attractions, such as seaside cafes, parks, shopping centers, and golf courses, bring a huge number of visitors each year. Tourists and residents alike frequent areas which can quickly become hazardous when managers are inattentive or negligent.
Compensation can be the financial lifeline you need to cope with injuries, economic hardship, and emotional duress following your accident.
Various types of incidents can occur on these types of properties. Examples of premises liability cases include:
- Slip and fall - Code violations in a building, inadequate lighting, broken staircases, and slippery floors are all examples of situations that can result in a trip and fall that otherwise could have been prevented.
- Dog bites - Dog bite victims in our state are fortunate to have Florida law on their side. Our state has strict liability requirements on the books for owners whose animal attacks another person.
- Negligent security - Bright lights, security cameras, and guards are some of the basic measures a property owner may take to keep visitors safe. Assaults that could otherwise have been prevented may be grounds for a premises liability claim.
- Toxic mold - Property owners are required to keep their premises free of toxic mold, which can make people extremely sick. The presence of toxic mold is of particular concern on Palm Coast, where it grows easily in the humid environment.
Premises Liability in Florida
A central issue to your claim is whether you were invited to the property, were trespassing, or were visiting for your own purposes (licensee). This distinction will be a significant determinant in the amount of compensation you can pursue. For example, trespassers are given little, if any, rights under Florida law. Conversely, a property owner is expected to extend the highest duty of protection and care to invitees, warning them of any potential dangers and correcting those dangers in a reasonable time frame.
If you have been injured at the hands of a careless property owner or manager, you may be eligible for compensation. Our compassionate attorneys can seek compensation based on your past and future losses connected to:
- Medical expenses
- Loss of income
Our firm will work diligently to make the strongest case possible and maximize your compensation. The money you secure from a settlement or verdict can be the financial lifeline you need to cope with injuries, economic hardship, and emotional duress following your accident.
