Have you or a loved one been involved in an accident on someone else’s property? Was the accident caused by hazardous conditions there? Property owners have a basic duty of care to maintain a safe environment for people who enter their property. When a property owner and/or the property’s staff members fail to provide an adequately safe environment, accidents and injuries can happen, spurring legal action to recover compensation for damages.

Some of the most common premises liability accidents are slip and fall incidents from wet or oily floors, icy walkways, and more. We understand that you’re experiencing a world of suffering after a premises accident, and the accident may have changed your life. That’s why we want to help you win the maximum compensation you are entitled to by law.

How Premises Liability Cases Work In Boca Raton

For a victim or family member to bring a claim to the local Boca Raton court after a premises liability accident, the victim must be legally allowed on the premises, such as an invitee or a social guest. 

Trespassers and licensees are not covered by the same duty and obligation of care that invitees or social guests are. Examples of invitees include customers in a retail store or patients in a medical facility.

Premises liability cases can be complex, and many factors are taken in hand when proving the negligence of the property owner. These include the use of the property, the visitor’s relationship to the property owner, any signs or warnings that were given, and any potential foresight of the accident.
