If the public place, store or land contributed to your injuries, you are entitled to recover damages for your injuries.
Florida Premises Liability Defined
A common example of premises liability is the case of a customer slipping and falling on wet store floor. Florida law provides that an owner of property is charged with maintaining that property in a reasonably safe manner so that a visitor would not be injured upon the property when the property is open to the public or in which it is foreseeable that a member of the public would enter the property. Failing to adequately maintain the safety of the area will result in the owner of the property being held accountable to pay for the injuries that the property may cause to others. Other examples of dangerous conditions could include falling ceiling tiles, holes in a parking lot, and unsafe stairs or hand railings. Just the same, if the owner of the property allows dangerous activities to occur on the property that could expose a person to harm, the owner will again be held liable for the injuries to such a person.
Florida Premises Liability Tips
Just like an automobile accident, you should seek medical assistance for your injuries and keep all appointments for your doctors and therapists. To assist in the recovery of your case, you should file an accident report with the owner of the property or store and request a copy of the same. It is also suggested that you photograph the scene of the accident and your injuries. You will also find it helpful to keep a journal for the accident so you can list all details of the accident, the witnesses you have, and the times and dates for your medical appointments. A journal can be incredibly helpful over time as you may find yourself forgetting the details of the accident.
Florida Premises Liability Claims
To recover damages for your personal injuries, a medical doctor must conclude that your injuries are permanent and have impaired you in whole or in part. Thereafter, you must seek relief against the property or building owner to pay you for your personal injuries in addition to all other costs. In order to prevail, you must be able to prove that the property or building owner was the proximate cause of your injuries and the accident in question. To maximize your recovery, all contributing sources for the accident must be examined as well as all applicable insurance coverage available to you.
