In Florida, every property owner has a duty to keep their premises safe for visitors (Yes, that includes in-laws). There are many considerations that go into a determination of whether a property owner is liable for an injury that has occurred on the premises. Such as, whether the property owner had prior knowledge of the condition that caused the accident.
In the event that the injury suffered by the visitor was caused by the property owner’s failure to fix a known problem, the owner may be liable for the damages caused to the visitor. Our attorneys are well versed in the numerous defenses available to property owners in responding to these types of claims. Our firm has experience defending property owners, both commercial and residential, that are alleged to be responsible for personal injuries, or the wrongful death, of visitors harmed from code violations, criminal acts, dangerous substances, premises in disrepair.
