PREMISES LIABILITY ACCIDENTS – FORT LAUDERDALE / MIAMI
When you enter someone’s property, you have a reasonable expectation of not getting hurt / injured. This means that the property owner (or non-owner resident), is held responsible for maintaining a relatively safe environment. This is known often know as “premises liability.”
Premises liability states that property owners and residents are liable for accidents and injuries that have occurred on their property. The kinds of incidents that may result in premises liability claims can range from a slip and fall in a public elevator to an injury suffered on an theme park ride.
Liability, which differs from state to state, is often based off of which state the injury occurred. Also it is important to remember that an occupier of land, such as an apartment tenant, is treated in the same manner as a landowner in many situations.
If you or a loved one has suffered from a premises liability injury, you should speak with an attorney to make sure that your legal rights are protected.
