In Florida, the owners/lessors of property are under a legal obligation to not create/allow safety hazards or dangerous conditions on their property. This is true whether they had, or should have had actual knowledge of the condition.
A customer is considered a “business invitee” or guest and is entitled to the highest care on the part of the business owner to make sure the premises are free of any dangerous conditions.
These types of cases usually involve owners and property managers of:
- restaurants and other businesses
- apartment buildings
- parking lots
- as well as homes and other private property.
This may include slip and fall type injuries that occur on the property caused by:
• spilled substances that cause slippery floors and surfaces;
• uneven walkways and/or steps;
• insufficient lighting in stairwells and parking lots;
• insufficient or negligent security;
• dangerous or unsupervised swimming pools;
• animal attacks
Regardless of the type, the injuries caused by these violations can have a serious impact on the injured person’s life and in some cases the violations can cause death.
Victims of slip and fall accidents are entitled to compensation for medical care, loss wages, permanent disability or disfigurement, and pain and suffering.
