Premises Liability

When you enter a store or a restaurant, you can be reasonably sure that you will be safe there. That is because building owners have a responsibility to protect their guests from dangerous conditions such as broken stairways, unstable railings and unsafe floor surfaces.

This responsibility is known as premises liability. Premises owners who fail to protect their guests from unsafe conditions may be found liable for the injuries that result.

Premises liability lawyer Joe Horrox has spent more than 30 years helping Daytona Beach residents understand their rights under premises liability law. These laws can be complex; it is important then that injured victims seek out legal assistance to learn more about their particular situation.


Premises liability claims come in many forms. One of the most common cases is slip and fall. Slip-and-fall injuries occur when a premises owner fails to clean up a spilled liquid or other substance. If a visitor falls on this unsafe surface, he or she may be able to pursue compensation through a personal injury claim.

Contrary to popular belief, slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall injuries can be very severe. Often, victims suffer neck and back injuries, which can be both painful and difficult to treat. Victims then can benefit greatly from a premises liability suit.


Premises liability is concerned with more than slip-and-fall injuries. Unsafe construction, ceiling collapses and construction defects all fall under the same set of laws. Dog bites are also related to premises liability; if a homeowner keeps a dangerous pet on the premises, he or she is responsible for any injuries that the animal causes. Negligent security cases are also technically premises liability cases, as property owners must sometimes be held accountable for attacks and other events that occur on their properties.
