When Are Property Owners Legally Accountable?
Every premises liability case will be different, and liability may vary depending on the type of property and the nature of your visit. There are two key factors that apply to premises liability cases in Florida. Your Apopka premises liability lawyer must prove these in order to seek compensation on your behalf.
According to Florida law, a property owner may be legally responsible for a visitor’s injuries if:
- The person was a public invitee (invited to the premises as a member of the public when such land/property is open to the public);
- The person was a business invitee (invited to be on the premises as connected with the business dealings of the property owner); or
- The person was a social guest of the property owner.
The property owner must also have breached his or her obligation as a property owner by:
- Failing to correct hazardous conditions on the property in a timely manner;
- Failing to reasonably warn the visitor of hazardous conditions on the property;
- Failing to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition; or
- Failing to guard against foreseeable third-party crimes.

We can guide you through the process from start to finish, providing expert legal counsel and aggressive representation on your behalf.
