Who is Responsible for my Slip and Fall Accident?
In some states like Florida, property owners have an obligation to keep their premises safe and secure. They are required by law to fix any hazards on their property and, at the very least, make sure that guests are adequately warned of any dangers. When a property owner is negligent in maintaining their premises, and a visitor is injured as a result, our attorneys may be able to help the injured party recover compensation for their losses. In Florida, a landowner can be considered negligent if they knew or should have known of a hazard and failed to repair it, or failed to provide warning about a known hazard.Did you fall at work? We Can Help
In Florida, many workers visit local hospitals and urgent care for work related injuries caused by a slip, trip and fall accident. This could be caused by as slippery substance, falling objects, falling from a roof or high surface.Invitees vs Licensees vs Trespassers
In Florida, all visitors to the property are divided into three categories:
An invitee is someone who has the landowner’s express or implied permission to enter the property. Invitees are usually people like friends, relatives, and neighbors. The landowner traditionally owed an invitee a duty of reasonable care to keep the property reasonably safe for the invitee.
A licensee is someone who has the landowner’s express or implied permission to enter the property, but is coming onto the property for his or her own purposes. Licensees are usually people like salesmen. The landowner traditionally owed a licensee a lesser duty only to warn the licensee of dangerous conditions that create an unreasonable risk of harm if the landowner knows about the condition and the licensee is not likely to be able to discover it.
A trespasser is someone who is not authorized to be on the property.I was injured on someone else's property. What should I do?
