Disrepair Of Premises And Premises Liability
Related to slip and fall cases are premises liability cases or disrepair of premises liability cases. No matter what terms are used, the cases come about in the same way: a property owner is negligent in the maintenance, repair, or upkeep of their property and it leads to someone getting hurt. Under Florida law, business and private property owners have a duty to provide a safe environment for individuals on their premises. Failure to do so can lead to premises liability lawsuits where victims sue the property owner for damages to compensate them for their injuries.
Premises liability cases can be complex with many variables that influenced the accident, including whether the injured party was an invite, a licensee, or a trespasser. That’s why it is always beneficial to speak with a Florida personal injury attorney at The Beregovich Law Firm if you have been injured on public or private property.
Examples Of Premises Liability Incidents
Although they are similar, premises liability covers a much broader range of situations than slip and fall cases. Some examples include:
- Trips and falls caused by unsafe property conditions.
- Construction site accidents.
- Assaults by employees or business patrons.
- Dog attacks and/or dog bites.
In all of these situations, the property owner failed to provide a safe environment for people on the property – a key component of premises liability cases. Both residential and commercial property owners can be sued for premises liability, but not every accident is considered a premises liability situation.
