Pompano Beach Premises Liability
Pompano Beach, Florida, is packed with interesting restaurants, shopping centers and specialty or boutique stores, businesses, office buildings and residences. Visitors and residents of Pompano go about their daily business visiting these locations, with little thought to the physical upkeep of those locations. Yet any failure by the property owner to keep that property in a safe condition can impact those who come on the premises. Florida law requires property owners to keep their property safe for anyone who visits that property, and failure to do so could result in legal action. If you have been injured to do a dangerous condition or negligence by a property owner in Pompano Beach, contact Frankl & Kominsky to explore your legal rights and options for compensation.When is a Property Owner Responsible?
The law recognizes that individuals enter most properties with the expectation that they will not face injury. When you enter a store, office building, restaurant, or home in Pompano Beach, you expect that the property will be maintained, without danger.
In reality, thousands of people are hurt every year thanks to carelessness or inattention by property owners. Premises liability claims include a variety of issues stemming from negligence by property owners. If an individual is hurt by falling trees, loose roofing, unsecured equipment, or below-standard electrical wiring, they may be able to assert a personal injury claim. Likewise, if visitors to a store slip and fall because a spill is not cleaned up, or if they trip on a cord placed dangerously in an aisle, or if the escalator or elevator fails, they may also have a claim.
While there are a large number of possible types of premises liability claims, following are some of the more common types:
- Slip and fall
- Falling ceilings
- Elevator and escalator failures
- Unsafe walkways
- Unsafe stairs
- Lack of safety in construction zones
- Animal attacks
- Unsafe structures
- Drowning due to unsafe pool fences
- Unsafe electrical work
- Poor retail store maintenance
All types of property must be maintained by owners to mitigate danger. This is true whether it is an individual residence, an office, a medical building, a store, a restaurant, a concert venue, or any other type of property.The Legal Standard
