Fort Lauderdale Premises Liability Lawyers

Protecting You from Property Owner Negligence

Have you ever been injured while visiting someone else’s property? Depending on the nature of your visit, the type of accident, and the severity of your injuries, you may be entitled to seek appropriate compensation from the landlord or property manager. This area of the law is called premises liability, and it rests on the idea that all property owners have a “duty of care” to those who visit their premises.

If you believe that you’ve suffered from a property owner’s negligence, our team at Rosenberg & Rosenberg, P.A. can take on your premises liability case in Fort Lauderdale. With over 40 years in business and a powerful commitment to our clients, we have the knowledge and skill required to recover fair compensation for your injuries. Even if you’re not sure about your claim, we can give you a free consultation to help you decide on the next steps!

Contact us at (888) 499-6206 today to discuss your case with one of our seasoned lawyers in Ft. Lauderdale.

What Makes a Premises Liability Case?

From stumbling on an exposed piece of carpet to suffering a vicious dog bite, there are dozens of hazards you may face while visiting someone else’s property. Property owners who do not appropriately maintain their premises can be considered “negligent” under Florida law, which may make them liable for your injuries in court. This is true for both commercial and residential property owners, although they have differing duties of care towards their visitors.

By far, the most common premises liability claims are for slips and falls, where a victim slips or trips on hazards that should have been cleared by someone responsible for the grounds. Other forms of premises liability can include domesticated animal attacks, or cases when an innocent person has been criminally attacked, as a result of negligent security staff or non-existent security measures.

Here are some other types of premises liability claims:

Who Is Liable for My Injuries?

While anyone can bring a premises liability claim against a property owner or manager, it’s important to keep in mind that not all visitors are treated equally under the law. For instance, trespassers – those who enter a property without permission – are rarely entitled to receive compensation for injuries, as a property owner has a much lower duty of care towards those who trespass.

However, if you were expressly invited to enter the property as an “invitee,” you are granted a much higher degree of legal protection for your injuries. An invitee can be a shopper who visits a store for the purpose of doing business, or someone who is enjoying public property such as a city park. Anyone injured under these circumstances could have a case against the property manager or owner.
