When Property Owners and Managers are Financially Liable for Injuries to a Guest
Florida has strict premises liability laws that property owners and managers must follow. They establish the duties owed to guests on various types of private property, including residential, commercial, and industrial. An owner or manager must keep their property free from hazards and must promptly address any dangerous conditions that emerge.
Keeping Properties Free From Hazards
All Florida property owners and managers must take reasonable steps to prevent hazardous conditions and to address them promptly when they emerge. Common hazards found on properties include:
- Wet or slippery floors
- Structural defects
- Mold or mildew
- Toxic chemicals
- Unsafe stairwells (e.g., missing or loose steps, loose handrails)
- Cracks or holes in floors or pavement
- Poor lighting
- Unsecured swimming pools
- Aggressive animals
- Exposed electrical wires
Notifying and Protecting Guests When Dangerous Conditions Emerge
In the event a hazardous condition emerges on the property, the owner or manager must do two things:
First, they must make a reasonable effort to shield guests from it and to warn them about it. This may involve physically blocking off the area and posting signs.
Second, the owner or manager must address the issue and get it fixed as quickly as is reasonably possible. The longer a dangerous condition can languish, the higher the chance a guest eventually gets hurt by it.

Why Choose the Landau Law Group to Handle Your Florida Premises Liability Case
At the Landau Law Group, we operate differently from other personal injury firms. Our dedicated attorneys not only offer aggressive representation, but we also pride ourselves on our commitment to top-notch client service. We want you to consider us your partners in this process.
Here is what you can expect from the Landau Law Group when you hire us to take on your premises liability case:
A Free Case Evaluation
We want you to hire us with complete confidence. We also want to know before we start working on your case that we can genuinely help you. So, we offer a free case evaluation that comes with no risk or obligation. A member of our team will sit down with you, review the details of your injury, and go over your options. Once you move forward with us, we do not collect a fee until we recover compensation for you.
A Thorough Investigation Into Your Injury
Our attorneys conduct a complete investigation into your injury. We will identify every potentially liable party and collect evidence to prove their negligence. In the course of our investigation, we will:
- Examine the injury scene, taking photos or videos if necessary;
- Talk to witnesses;
- Review police or accident reports;
- Review surveillance footage if available;
- Research the property’s background;
- Examine your medical records.
Expert Witness Consultation
Hiring an expert witness can bolster our case substantially. Depending on the circumstances of your injury, we can seek out the services of an expert in several fields, including building construction, mold remediation, and many others.
The authority of an expert witness can strengthen our case and help us counter any efforts by the responsible party or their insurer to avoid responsibility.
The Landau Law Group team features aggressive negotiators who know how to get our clients the compensation they deserve. We build a compelling, evidence-backed case on your behalf, and then we approach the responsible party or parties (or their insurers) to begin the negotiation process.
We can often negotiate with the insurance company for an out-of-court settlement. This allows us to avoid a lengthy trial process. But if they are not willing to agree to pay what you deserve, we do not hesitate to file a lawsuit and go to trial.
Jury Trial Experience
If the other party is not amenable to a fair out-of-court settlement, we can file a lawsuit and take your case before a jury, where our team has a long track record of success.
