What Is Premises Liability?

Premises liability is a branch of personal injury law. The main tenet of premises liability is that real estate owners owe you a legal duty to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe state.

You may be able to seek compensation through a premises liability claim if:

  • You suffered injuries due to dangerous or defective conditions on someone else’s property, such as a slippery floor or broken staircase.
  • The owner knew or should have known of the risks involved but took no action to prevent them.
  • You can prove the property owner’s negligence caused your injuries.

Types of Premises Liability Cases

Virtually any accident can be grounds for a premises liability action if it involves negligence. Common circumstances that may trigger premises liability include:

  • Poorly lit areas
  • Slippery surfaces
  • Fire hazards
  • Toxic chemical leaks
  • Trip and fall hazards
  • Broken stairways and handrails
  • Poorly maintained elevators and escalators
  • Construction defects, such as holes in concrete or exposed electrical wires
  • Poor security, such as broken fences or malfunctioning security cameras

If you believe you may have a valid claim, call our team immediately to speak to a premises lawyer. We can review your case and advise you on the next steps.

What Compensation Is Available in Premises Liability Cases?

The same compensation is available in premises liability cases as for other types of personal injuries. Depending on the facts of the case, you may be able to seek damages for:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Past and future lost wages and work-related benefits
  • Property damage
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish

How Long Do You Have To File a Premises Liability Claim?

The statute of limitations for premises liability claims in Florida is four years from the date of injury. However, you shouldn’t wait that long to file a claim. Hiring a lawyer and taking legal action as early as possible helps maximize your chances of success and your possible final award.

You should also keep in mind that the statute of limitations only applies to lawsuits. The deadline for filing an insurance claim may be much shorter. A premises liability attorney can advise you on the applicable time frames and ensure that you don’t miss any deadlines.
