Understanding Property Injuries: Who Is Responsible?

Individuals sustain injuries every single day on different types of property. Construction sites, hotels, restaurants, amusement parks — you name it.

Under Florida law, property owners (or those who manage property) have a duty to properly maintain the premises under their control. Those who fail to take proper steps to fix a known dangerous situation that causes injury to others is liable under the theory of premises liability.

Common instances include:

1. Negligent Security

Property owners who fail to install proper lighting or cameras in and around potentially dangerous areas such as underground parking garages, stairwells, hallways or entryways, that lead to injury, assault, robbery or even murder could be liable in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.

2. Slip-And-Fall Injuries

Restaurants, retail stores, bars, hotel owners — even construction site developers — who fail to fix, resolve or repair known hazards that result in slip-and-fall accidents to those who enter the property may also be responsible under the law.
