Premises liability when an accident happens on someone else’s’ property and the property owner failed to take measures that could have prevented the accident. This extends to business owners and property managers who have a duty to provide a safe environment for their guests. A homeowner also has some duty of care when entertaining guests. Even walking into a grocery store can be dangerous. If you are harmed while on someone else’s property, after receiving medical attention you will need to contact a Cooper City premises liability attorney to discuss your case and hold the liable parties responsible for their negligence. We use an aggressive and comprehensive approach at the Law Office of Bradley S. Hartman, P.A. to place you in the best position to succeed.
Regardless of whether the accident happened in a parking garage, grocery store aisle, uneven pavement at a construction site or a slip and fall, you may be entitled to monetary compensation for your injuries. There are many possible contributing factors to a premises liability accident. These include but are not limited to:
These property issues typically end in a slip and fall or a trip and fall but not all premises liability cases involve slip/trip and fall in Cooper CIty. Some other examples of premises liability include defective elevators or escalators, swimming pool accidents like drowning, lack of security, fires, dog bites, and amusement park accidents. A broken automatic door can also cause serious damage if left broken.
Landlords and property managers have a duty to maintain safe living conditions in some areas. They are required to maintain common areas safe and well lit. If you are on a short-term lease with a furnished property, the landlord is required to make sure the dwelling is equipped with safe furniture. If there are hidden dangers, renters and visitors should be given a warning to avoid accidents. Claims against landlords require the tenant to prove that the area where the accident occurred was the landlord’s responsibility to maintain, that they had ample time to fix the problem prior to the accident, wa injury inevitable if the problem was unfixed and were you hurt. Your Cooper City premises liability attorney can help you prove that all of this happened and will work to hold the landlord or property manager liable for their negligence.
