If you sustained injuries while visiting a store, restaurant, private home, or other property in Cape Coral or greater Lee County, you might be eligible to pursue compensation for your damages. Florida law requires property owners to maintain their property and keep it free from dangerous hazards. If they fail to do so, they can be held liable for the injuries of guests.
The Landau Law Group is ready to review your case today. A Cape Coral premises liability lawyer can help you understand your rights and explain your options for taking
legal action. Call us at 866-703-4878 for your complimentary consultation.
We Take on a Wide Variety of Cape Coral Premises Liability Claims
Cape Coral is growing quickly, and with more people comes more stores, restaurants, and shops. However, when these business owners do not maintain their property and keep it free of hazards, this can create a problem for customers and guests. Premises liability is no joke, even Cape Coral’s own government accounts for it when compiling its risk management assessments. If a property owner allows a hazard to remain, a visitor may end up in the hospital.
If this happened to you, we might be able to help you pursue damages and hold the property owner liable. We handle many types of premises liability injuries, including:
- Slip and fall hazards such as wet floors and spills
- Trip hazards such as uneven floors and obstructed walkways
- Uneven stairs and unmarked step ups
- Other fall hazards such as poor lighting or broken/missing handrails
- Dog bites
- Diving or swimming pool accidents
- Electrical hazards
- Property neglect such as holes and broken sidewalks

The Landau Law Group Can Build a Case to Pursue Compensation in Your Cape Coral Injury Accident
For more than 15 years, the Landau Law Group has fought for the rights of the injured. Let us take on your case and pursue compensation by holding the property owner/occupier liable. We need to prove:
- There was a known hazard; and
- The property owner failed to address the hazard as soon as possible
In many cases, the property owner will deny they were aware of the hazard. However, we can build a strong case to show a “reasonable person” would have been aware of the hazard. This allows us to pursue damages without proving the owner knew about the risk to guests.
As a part of investigating your injury accident and building a case, we will:
- Survey the scene, including taking pictures and video
- Analyze all available documentation of the hazard
- Obtain copies of reports from police and other first responders
- Get surveillance video of the accident when possible
- Interview all available eyewitnesses
- Work closely with medical experts to understand your injuries and prognosis
- Document your accident-related expenses and losses
Once we have a strong argument to prove the property owner acted negligently and is liable for your damages, we will pursue the compensation you deserve. This may require us to take legal action, filing a premises liability lawsuit. These cases do sometimes end with an out-of-court settlement agreement, allowing us to recover a fair value for your damages while avoiding going before a Judge.
Recoverable Damages in a Cape Coral Premises Liability Case
The compensation we recover for our clients in a Cape Coral premises liability case stems from their expenses and losses related to the accident.

- Ambulance transportation
- Medical care and rehabilitation
- Prescription drug costs
- Ongoing and future care costs
Other Economic Damages

Wrongful Death Damages

You Must Act Quickly Before Time Runs Out
Florida’s statute of limitations limits how long you have to take legal action against a property owner whose negligence caused your injuries. If we fail to take action in time, the courts could prevent us from filing a civil suit to hold the owner/occupier liable. We recommend giving us a call as soon as possible after you suffer injuries so we can go to work on your case right away.
If we launch our investigation while you are still undergoing treatment, we can take legal action as soon as your injuries stabilize, and we have a good understanding of your ongoing and future care needs. This is important because the sooner we pursue the money you need, the sooner we know the outcome of your case.
