Spring Hill Premises Liability Lawyer

When you visit another person’s house or a business, you never expect to get hurt. Generally, you trust the people in charge of the property, whether it’s a friend or a local business owner. Unfortunately, the people responsible for keeping you safe occasionally fail to take the appropriate measures to do so.

The legal term premises liability refers to landowners’ responsibility to keep the people on their property safe. This responsibility extends beyond the landowner to anyone who has control of the property.

Whether a shopkeeper failed to put out a caution sign near a large spill or your landlord neglected to fix the loose step in your apartment building, you may have a valid case. If you suffered severe injuries due to a negligent property owner or manager, talk to a Spring Hill premises liability lawyer today. Our dedicated personal injury attorneys have your best interest in mind. We can advise you on the best course of action to get you the compensation you need.

What are the Elements of a Premises Liability Claim?

Like most other personal injury cases, all premises liability claims begin with proving the defendant’s negligence. To successfully demonstrate liability, you must show the following elements:

All of these elements are laid out in Florida Statute 768.0755. If you can satisfy all the elements of premises liability, you can hold the property owner accountable for your injuries and damages. However, proving fault on your own is not easy. A skilled personal injury attorney specializing in premises liability cases can assess the facts of your case to determine whether you have a viable claim.

What Are the Common Causes of Property Accidents in Spring Hill?

Premises liability claims can address a variety of hazards on someone’s property. Many of these accidents involve trip and falls or slip and falls caused by wet surfaces, loose wires, and unsafe stairs. Other common hazards include:

If you were injured due to a preventable accident on another person’s property, an experienced lawyer can help you identify the cause.

Potential Injuries in a Premises Liability Case

The potential consequences after a property accident can be severe. Some of the most common types of injuries suffered in premises liability cases include:

Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may receive compensation not only for your current losses but your future damages as well. A qualified civil attorney with premises liability case experience can review your claim to determine the appropriate amount of damages to seek to adequately compensate you for your injuries.

Why Do I Need a Premises Liability Attorney?

As we laid out earlier, there are many factors that have to be proven in order to make a claim in a premises liability case. Additionally, premises liability accidents can often result in extremely serious injuries, especially fractures, broken bones, and concussions, that result in large medical bills that you will want to pay with a fair settlement.

Without hiring a personal injury lawyer with experience in proving these types of cases, on top of healing from your injuries, and the mounting medical bills, you will have to handle the tricky steps in managing a case. From gathering evidence, handling calls from the insurance company, and making sure there is a thorough investigation, we can take all of this off your plate and hopefully reduce your stress.
