Premises Liability Lawyer
When property owners fail to provide a safe environment for guests or customers, serious and entirely preventable injuries can result.
If you were injured on someone's property, our premises liability lawyers at Joe Horrox Law in Daytona Beach, FL, can help you recover.
How do you find out if you have a premises liability case?
There Are 4 Main Requirements for a Premises Liability Lawsuit
The first aspect of the case our premises liability attorneys will help you prove is that the person who caused the injury (the defendant) owned, occupied, or leased the property where the injury took place.
Another crucial piece of any personal injury case is proving negligence. In a premises liability case, this term means that the defendant failed to maintain safe conditions on their property.
Your insurance company or a judge will also require proof that you or a loved one truly were harmed. You can establish this fact through testimony or by providing medical bills.
One of the most difficult things to prove is that the defendant was responsible for your injury. Our personal injury attorneys can investigate and provide evidence connecting your injuries to the defendant's action or inaction.
Without an attorney, your settlement may be much lower...
Our Attorneys Can:
Hold Negligent Owners Accountable
When a property owner fails to provide a safe environment, they place others at risk. At Joe Horrox Law, we believe in holding negligent individuals accountable and will provide the representation necessary to achieve this goal.
Increase the Amount of Compensation
Unfortunately, the first offer from the insurance company is not always a fair amount. We can negotiate with insurance providers or pursue a lawsuit to ensure you receive the level of compensation you deserve for your injuries.
"Another thing that sets us apart is our law firm guarantee, and by that I mean we guarantee that at the settlement of the case, our client will walk away with more than what we get in terms of attorney fees." Joe Horrox

Fall Accidents Are Serious and Costly
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.
HANDLING SLIP-AND-FALL INJURIES
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.
READY TO HELP WITH ANY SITUATION
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.
No matter what your premises liability concern is, Joe Horrox Law has the resources and experience to guide you through the process. We take the time to get to know our clients on a personal level, discovering exactly how their injuries have affected their lives. We use these insights to push for the maximum possible award in every case.
