How West Palm Beach Premises Liability Claims Work
When a person is injured or killed due to unsafe property conditions, the victim or the victim’s family may bring forth a premises liability case in a West Palm Beach court. To legally collect compensation for damages, the victim must be legally allowed on the property as a guest or an invitee.
Examples of premises guests include shoppers in a retail store or patients in a medical building. Trespassers or property licensees are not covered under the same duty and obligation of care as guests and invitees. A premises liability attorney’s goal is to prove the negligence of the property owner, who breached their duty of care to maintain a safe environment for guests and invitees.
Many factors matter during a premises liability lawsuit, such as the property’s use, the victim’s relationship to the premises owner, signs or warnings that were given, and whether or not there is potential foresight of the accident. These lawsuits can be complex, so the guidance of a premises accident attorney is a must.

How much time do I have to file a premises liability lawsuit?
Although you may be experiencing a large amount of pain and suffering, it’s important to realize that you must file a premises liability lawsuit within a specific period as defined by Florida’s statute of limitations and the type of claim you’ll be making.
For personal injury claims, such as medical bills, lost wages, and general damages, you have up to four years from the date of the accident to file your claim, in most cases. For wrongful death claims, the descendant’s family has up to two years from the date of the death to bring forth a legal claim.
Outside of these time frames, you will likely not be able to collect compensation for your losses through a lawsuit.
