Tampa Commercial Property Liability Lawyer

When you walk into a grocery store, restaurant, shopping mall, or office, you usually do not think about the possibility of getting injured. You generally trust that the property owner or manager will keep the area safe and protect you from harm. However, negligent property owners do not always take as much caution as they should with their guests.

Premises liability laws help protect individuals who have suffered injuries on public or commercial property due to hazardous conditions. Personal injury cases following premises liability accidents can be complex, as there are many laws governing these claims, not to mention many things that must be proven.

If you were injured on someone else’s property, reach out to our Tampa commercial property liability lawyers to discuss your case. You are already stressed about your health, effects on your family, and missing work. We can take worrying about finances, paying for medical expenses, and dealing with the insurance company off of your plate. Our skilled premises liability attorneys can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.

What Types of Commercial Properties are Subject to Premises Liability Law?

Commercial property owners and managers must meet specific standards to keep their visitors safe. They must keep their premises free of hazards and unsafe conditions or provide adequate warnings if any threats are present. These laws apply to the owners of most commercial spaces, including:

If you were injured because of a preventable hazard in any of these types of commercial buildings, you should speak with our attorneys in Tampa right away.

How is Fault Determined in Commercial Property Liability Cases for Tampa Businesses

Florida Statutes § 768.0755 states that business owners and managers have a duty of care and responsibility to warn visitors of dangerous conditions. They must also walk around the premises regularly to look for potential hazards and post warning signs.

So, if you enter an establishment and suffer an injury due to a dangerous condition like a loose floor tile, you can pursue a premises liability claim if you can prove the owner knew or should have known about the hazard.

What are the Potential Difficulties with Proving Negligence in Slip and Fall Accidents?

When you get injured in a store or any other type of commercial property, you generally have the right to file a liability claim. However, proving that the business owner should have known about the hazard may be difficult in certain slip and fall cases.

For example, if someone in a store spills a bottle of water, immediately causing you to slip and fall, the property owner would not have had time to warn you of the hazard. Talk to one of our skilled lawyers in Tampa about your premises liability accident to determine whether you have a valid case against the business.
