Premises Liability Under Florida Law

Florida law regarding liability against property owners places a rather heavy burden of proof against the accident victim. Most people automatically assume that the property owner is always liable for those injuries occurring on their premises. However, Florida law clearly does not support such a general proposition.

When an individual sustains an accident on someone else’s premises, in order to make a successful damage recovery, the injured person must show by the greater weight of the evidence that the property owner either was aware of the dangerous conditions that caused the fall or that condition existed for a sufficient length of time that they should have become aware of it and consequently had enough time to take corrective action to remove the dangerous condition.

Failure to present this evidence in court will likely result in the judge entering a judgment in favor of the defendant property owner, which will in effect resolve the case before you even have your chance to present your claim to a jury of your peers. It is therefore important you have a lawyer who knows the proof that is required to get to a jury trial and this give you a fighting chance at obtaining full compensation for your injuries.

At Joe Horrox Law, we have a considerable experience in taking what appears to be a difficult case and ultimately making a fair recovery for our clients. Over the years, we have undertaken representation of clients who had previously consulted with or been represented by other attorney who either rejected out client’s case or told them that their prospects of recovery were rather dim.

The bottom line is if you’re been injured in a premises accident, and you have medical bills or wage loss, it is absolutely imperative that you immediately consult with a lawyer experienced in handling these specific type of cases.
