Premises Liability

 

 Thousands of people are injured each year around Jacksonville, Florida, through no fault of their own. No one expects to be injured simply going about their day, but that is the situation in which you could find yourself because of someone else’s negligence.

 

Premises liability accidents not only include so-called “slip and fall” accidents, but also encompass a broad range of other accident types. Some of the most common include the following:

 

      Slip and fall

      Inadequate maintenance

      Defective conditions

      Inadequate security

      Elevator and escalator accidents

      Swimming pool accidents

      Parking lot accidents

      Amusement park accidents

      And more

 

Despite the wide range of accident types, premises liability cases all have one thing in common – you’ve been injured through no fault of your own. In fact, the fault can be laid at the feet of the person or entity who owed a legal duty to properly maintain the property in a safe condition or warn of dangers on the property, but failed to do so. We work with clients throughout Jacksonville and the surrounding area who have been injured by dangerous conditions on a property or in a building through no fault of their own.

 

The property owner, renter, lessee, or person otherwise in control of the property is responsible for maintaining the premises in a reasonably safe condition. This is called a “duty of care” and it is extended to invitees, licensees, and even those considered trespassers in some situations. We can help you understand what legal standard would apply to your circumstances, what duty of care you deserved, and then fight for your rights in court, if necessary.
