Whether your slip and fall injury occurred on residential or commercial property, our job is to investigate, identify all responsible parties, collect evidence against them, and build a compelling case that gets you paid.
Florida’s Premises Liability Laws
Florida has strict premises liability laws that govern both residential and commercial properties. According to these laws, owners and managers have a duty to keep their properties safe for guests and free from hazards. If a dangerous condition arises, the owner or manager must address it promptly. In the meantime, they are required to take adequate steps to shield visitors from the hazardous situation.
A property owner or manager who is aware of a dangerous situation but fails to fix it or to protect guests from it could be financially liable for any injuries that result.
Slip and Fall Injuries on Residential Property
Residential properties are those owned for private use, not for business purposes. They include houses, apartments, condominiums, and mobile homes. When someone suffers an injury on a residential property, several parties may be liable, including the homeowner, the tenant, the property manager, and the homeowners’ association.
Based on the circumstances of your injury, our premises liability attorneys will take a look at some or all of these parties and determine which of them bear liability for your injury.
Slip and Fall Injuries on Commercial Property
Commercial properties include shopping malls, grocery stores, retailers, car dealerships, office buildings, and other premises used to conduct business. Owners and managers of these properties must follow the same premises liability laws that apply to private residences. If a dangerous condition on the property caused your fall, and we can show that the owner or manager knew about it but failed to take robust steps to protect you from it, we can hold them liable.
Examples of Hazardous Conditions on Residential and Commercial Property
Any number of hazards can emerge on private property, potentially causing injuries to guests. The Landau Law Group has helped clients injured in slip and fall accidents caused by the following and more:
- Wet and slippery floors
- Uneven or cracked pavement
- Unmarked obstacles on floor
- Poor lighting
- Loose or missing stairs
- Loose or missing handrails
- Broken escalators
Before Speaking with the Insurance Company, Talk to a Lawyer from the Landau Law Group
You typically must go through an insurance company to get paid for a slip and fall injury. If your accident had a clear and obvious responsible party, you may get a call from their insurer right away, offering to settle and get a check in the mail.
It can be tempting to jump at this offer, especially if you are anticipating high medical bills or are having to miss work. But it is a bad idea to accept an offer or even speak with an insurance company before talking to a slip and fall lawyer.
A lawyer from the Landau Law Group can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf. We will also make sure you do not inadvertently say anything that could be used against you to undermine your claim.
