Are You Clumsy or Are They Liable?
Accidents happen. Often times we can be forgetful, clumsy, and even just make mistakes. After all, nobody is perfect. But there are times when an accident happens—and you might think you are just being clumsy, but a third party may be liable. So how do you know if you are being clumsy or they are liable?
What is a Premises Liability Case?
Premises liability cases can be a bit complex—depending on the facts and nature of the case. Often times an accident that occurs at a public place, private property, etc. is often the fault of a third party or property owner. But identifying this individual often involves the power of a legal team to conduct in depth research to determine who in fact is liable in a premises liability accident.
A property owner owes the public a safe place to visit. In fact, state and federal laws require them to do so. While the rules can vary, Florida state law mandates that property owners have an obligation to the public to keep their property or building safe for all authorized visitors, employees, and other persons entering the property.
What Does This Mean for Your Case?
So what do premises liability laws mean for you and how do they pertain to your accident? First and foremost, working with a skilled premises liability attorney can help you to determine if you have a case and who is liable for your accident.
Some of the most common causes of premise liability accidents include:
- Defective sidewalks or uneven sidewalks
- Uneven staircases or missing rails
- Water or substances on surfaces
- Defective electrical appliances or wiring
- Improper construction
- Shoddy workmanship
- Safety violations
- Inadequate security
If any of these premises liability accidents applies to you, then you may not be the one who was clumsy; this may involve a premises liability case. If so, then contact a premises liability lawyer as soon as possible. Making the decision to hire a premises liability to work along side you and represent you in an accident that resulted in personal injury can make all the difference in obtaining a settlement and preparing for any future medical care you and your family may need.
