How premises liability cases work in Boca Raton
Property owners have a legal duty to keep their properties reasonably safe for visitors and residents.
For a victim or family member to bring a claim to the local Boca Raton court after a premises liability accident, the victim must have been legally allowed on the premises. This means they were 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.
