If you suffered an injury on someone else’s property — whether residential, commercial, industrial, or public — you may have grounds for a premises liability lawsuit against the owner or manager. Florida has strict laws requiring owners and managers to protect the safety of visitors to their property. A Fort Lauderdale premises liability lawyer can collect evidence and build a case showing how another’s negligence caused your injury.
The Landau Law Group is a premises liability law firm serving clients up and down Florida’s Gulf Coast. We protect the rights of injured victims and help people recover the compensation they deserve. Our attorneys work on a no-win-no-fee basis. Only when you get paid, do we collect a fee. The initial consultation and case evaluation are free, with no risk or obligation, so call us today to get started: 866-703-4878.
The Responsibilities of Property Owners and Managers in Florida
Florida’s premises liability laws are strict, placing the burden on owners and managers to do everything possible to prevent injuries to guests of their properties. If a hazardous condition on someone else’s property caused or contributed to your injury, and the evidence shows that the owner or manager should have known about and addressed the problem, we can hold them liable for damages.
The law holds out two duties for property owners and managers:
Duty to Maintain a Safe, Hazard-Free Property
Owners and managers in Florida must keep their properties safe and free from hazards and must promptly address any dangerous conditions that emerge. These include but are not limited to:
- Wet floors
- Missing or loose stairs
- Missing or loose handrails on staircases
- Mold or mildew
- Lack of structural integrity
- Toxic chemicals
- Uneven pavement
- Inadequate lighting
- Unsecured pools
- Aggressive pets
- Exposed wires
Duty to Protect Visitors From Hazards
While owners and managers must keep their properties free from hazards, it is unavoidable that dangerous conditions will occasionally emerge. When they do, the owner or manager must take swift action to remedy the problem and, in the meantime, must take steps to protect guests. These steps may include roping off the area, erecting other physical barriers, and posting signs.
A Fort Lauderdale premises liability lawyer from The Landau Law Group can investigate your injury and collect evidence showing how the owner or manager of the property where it occurred is liable. To schedule a free consultation, call us today at 866-703-4878.

Here is what the Landau Law Firm offers:
A Free Initial Consultation
We want to be sure of two things before we move forward with your case: one, that we can indeed help you recover compensation for your injuries; and two, that you are comfortable and confident with us and that everyone is on the same page. So, we give you the opportunity to sit down with a member of our team and receive a full case evaluation with no risk and no obligation.
A Thorough Investigation into Your Case
Our staff will investigate every aspect of your case. We will piece together a clear narrative of what happened and who was responsible. We will examine many pieces of evidence, which may include:
- The condition of the accident scene;
- Statements from witnesses;
- Police reports;
- Photo and video surveillance;
- Any history of lawsuits or claims against the property owner or manager;
- Your medical records.
Aggressive Negotiation for Damages
Our team is composed of aggressive negotiators who can take on the responsible party or parties and their insurers. Property owners and insurance companies dedicate many resources to defending themselves against liability claims. They often have highly paid and highly skilled legal teams. The Landau Law Group is ready to go toe-to-toe with any of them and make sure you collect the compensation you deserve.
Jury Trial Experience
We usually try to get the other side to agree to a fair settlement outside of court, thereby avoiding a long and drawn-out legal process. But if they do not agree to pay what you deserve, we do not hesitate to take your case before a jury. Our attorneys have an excellent track record in a jury trial setting.
