FAQ

Morgan & Morgan

  • Is the Property Owner Liable?

    In some states like Florida, property owners have an obligation to keep their premises safe and secure. They are required by law to fix any hazards on their property and, at the very least, make sure that guests are adequately warned of any dangers. When a property owner is negligent in maintaining their premises, and a visitor is injured as a result, our attorneys may be able to help the injured party recover compensation for their losses.

    In Florida, a landowner can be considered negligent if they knew or
    should have known of a hazard and failed to repair it, or failed to
    provide warning about a known hazard.

  • Levels of Care for Property Owners

    Property owners owe different levels of care depending on the type of
    guest they are hosting.

    • Invitees: Invitees are those who are invited to enter or remain on the premises for a commercial benefit of the property owner. For instance, a customer in a grocery store would be considered an invitee, as the store actively invites the public to enter onto its premises for the purchase of food and other goods. Property owners owe these invitees or guests the highest level of care. For these guests, property owners are required to inspect their premises and provide warnings about any hazards. As a result of the mandatory inspections, property owners may be liable for any hazard of which they should be aware.
    • Licensees: Friends, family members, and any other social guests are considered licensees. The main difference between invitees and licensees is that the latter are invited to enter or remain on the premises for non-business or commercial purposes. Property owners are required to maintain and fix any hazardous areas of the property. Unlike business invitees, property owners are only liable for dangers they know about—as opposed to what they should have known.
    • Trespassers: A property owner’s obligation to trespassers is significantly less than that of a business invitee or licensee. The property owner is not allowed to intentionally set up hazardous areas on their premises to guard against trespassers.
  • Types of Premises Liability Claims

    Our attorneys handle premises liability claims involving the following:

    Swimming Pool Accidents: These types of cases can occur because the pool is not properly protected by a fence or barrier. When a property owner fails to adequately secure their pool, they may be found liable for any injury that occurs as a result.

    Amusement Park Accidents: We deal with a fair number of theme park accidents. These accidents can range from minor injuries to deadly accidents depending on when and how the accident occurred. It is important to remember that a waiver does not automatically exempt a property owner from liability for injuries.

    Concert Injuries: If your injury was foreseeable, and the venue owner did not adequately address the potential threat, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the venue owner to recover compensation. If you’re injured by an element of the performer’s show — such as errant pyrotechnics — you may be able to file a lawsuit against the performer, their management company, or another third-party. In 2003, the Station Nightclub in Warwick, Rhode Island caught fire after the band’s manager set off pyrotechnics inside the club. 100 people were killed and 230 were injured. Lawsuits against more than two dozen defendants eventually led to a $176 million settlement, according to reports. More recently, 14 concertgoers were injured at a Backstreet Boys concert in Oklahoma, when a sudden storm with high wind gusts blew over trusses at the venue’s entrance, injuring some concertgoers waiting in line.

    Some of the most common concert accidents include:

    • Escalator accident
    • Falling down stairs
    • Hit by projectile
    • Pyrotechnic accidents
    • Seat collapse
    • Slips and falls
    • Stage collapse

    Slip and Falls: Slip and falls usually occur because the victim has
    not been properly alerted by the property owner of hazards such as wet floors, icy grounds, slippery surfaces, or uneven pavement.

    Assault Due to Negligent Security: Property owners are required to provide security when their property is located in an area that is likely to attract crime. The property owner can be found liable if an attack occurs on a piece of property that lacks adequate security. Examples can include assaults that occur in mall parking lots or rapes
    in hotel rooms.

    Elevator/Escalator Accident: Individuals who have been injured due to the malfunction of an elevator or escalator may be able to file a premises liability lawsuit against the owner of the property. Victims of elevator and escalator accidents may also be able to file a claim against the manufacturer of the elevator or escalator.

  • What Can I Recover in a Premises Liability Suit?

    In a Florida premises liability case, your attorney may be able to help
    you recover compensation for the following:

    Medical Bills: Victims may be able to collect compensation for any
    medical bills incurred as a result of their injury. This can include
    doctor visits, surgeries, physical therapy, medication, and future
    medical care.

    Lost Wages: Victims can be compensated for any work missed due to
    the injury and may be able to collect compensation for decreased future earning ability.

    Pain and Suffering: In a premises liability lawsuit, individuals may
    be entitled to compensation for any lasting physical or emotional pain
    suffered as a result of their injury.

    Wrongful Death: When a person dies as a result of another’s
    negligence, the family of the victim may be able to file a wrongful
    death lawsuit. Families of deceased victims may be able to collect
    compensation for any financial damage, such as loss of income, resulting from their loved one’s death. Families may also be able to seek compensation for pain and suffering.

    If you or someone you love has suffered an injury on another’s
    property, you may be able to file a premises liability claim. Contact
    the attorneys
    at our offices, at no cost to you, today to find out if you have legal recourse.
