What is Premises Liability Law?

Premises liability is the area of law that places liability on property owners if injuries occur on their property due to negligence. If you’ve been injured on another person’s property, you may be able to file a premises liability claim against the owner.

What Types of Injuries Are Covered by Premises Liability Law?

Several different types of injuries are covered by premises liability law. Some common examples include:

If you’ve been injured in any of the above ways, you may have a valid premises liability claim. However, it’s important to note that not all injuries that occur on another person’s property will give rise to a successful claim. For your claim to be successful, you must prove that the property owner was negligent.

For example, if you were injured in a slip and fall accident, you will need to show that the property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition that caused your fall and failed to take steps to fix it.

What To Do if You’re Injured on Someone Else’s Property

Nobody wants to get injured, but unfortunately, accidents happen all the time—including accidents that occur on someone else’s property. If you or a loved one has been injured in such an accident, you may be wondering what to do next.

1. Seek Medical Attention Immediately
If you’ve been injured in an accident, it’s always best to err on the side of caution and seek medical attention right away—even if you don’t think your injuries are serious. Some injuries, like concussions, may not present immediately but can still be quite severe. So, if you’ve been injured, it’s always best to get checked out by a doctor as soon as possible.

2. Take Photos or Videos of the Scene of the Accident and Your Injuries

If you have a camera or smartphone with you, take photos or videos of the scene of the accident and your injuries. These photos and videos will serve as valuable evidence if you decide to file a personal injury claim later on.

3. Obtain Contact Information For Witnesses
If there are any witnesses nearby, be sure to get their contact information so that they can provide testimony about what they saw if necessary.

4. Call a Personal Injury Lawyer to Discuss Your Legal Options

After you’ve taken care of your immediate medical needs and gathered evidence from the scene of the accident, it’s time to call a personal injury lawyer to discuss your legal options. A personal injury lawyer will be able to tell you whether you have a valid claim and how much your claim might be worth. They will also be able to handle all the legal paperwork and negotiations with insurance companies on your behalf so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries.

Establishing a Duty of Care in Premises Liability Claims in Florida

When you’re injured on someone else’s property, the first question you need to answer is whether the property owner owed you a duty of care. In other words, did they have a legal obligation to keep you safe? The answer to that question will determine whether you have a viable premises liability claim.

Duty of care is the legal obligation to take reasonable steps to protect people from foreseeable risks of injury. The type of duty that a property owner owes you will depend on your relationship to the property. Were you an invitee, a licensee, or a trespasser?

Some examples of invitees include customers at a store or restaurant, patients at a doctor’s office, and students at a school. In this case, the property owner must keep the premises safe, fix any hazardous conditions, and warn visitors of dangerous conditions on the property that they know of or should know of.

If you were not an invitee but were on the property for your own benefit (for example, if you were doing work for them as an independent contractor), then you would be classified as a licensee. Licensees are owed a lower duty of care than invitees because they’re not paying customers. Property owners must keep the premises reasonably safe and warn visitors of any hazardous conditions they are aware of.

The last category is trespassers. Property owners don’t owe trespassers any duty of care. If you’re injured while trespassing, you will usually not be able to succeed in a premises liability claim against the property owner. You must prevent reckless or intentional injury to trespassers, but that’s the extent of the duty
