Premises Liability Attorney

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 claim?

What Is Premises Liability?

When you enter a store or a restaurant, or when you are invited onto private property, you have a right to assume that you will be safe there. That is because property owners and business 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. Property owners who fail to protect their guests from unsafe conditions may be found liable for the injuries that result.

What Our Attorneys Can Do for Personal Injury Victims

Meet for a Free Consultation

Our attorneys, Joe Horrox and Anna Handy, offer an initial free consultation to all prospective clients. Find out if you have grounds for a premises liability lawsuit by calling (386) 258-2121.

Come to You

We can schedule your appointment for a time that is convenient for you, including weekends and evenings. Our attorneys can meet with you at your home or hospital room if you can't come to our Daytona Beach office.

Investigate Your Accident

Our premises liability lawyers will thoroughly investigate the cause of your injury and determine who was responsible. We have successfully handled a wide range of fall accidents and other premises liability claims.

Hold Negligent Owners Accountable

When a property owner fails to provide a safe environment, they place others at risk. At our law firm in Daytona Beach, we believe in holding negligent individuals accountable and 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. Our attorneys can negotiate with insurance providers or pursue a lawsuit to ensure you receive the level of compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Our Guarantee

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

Florida Premises Liability Laws

The state of Florida recognizes the following types of visitors to homes, places of business, and other properties:

  • Invitees (such as customers at a store)
  • Licensees (such as houseguests or visiting friends)
  • Trespassers

From a legal standpoint, property owners have a duty to keep their premises safe for all people. However, the burden of proof is greater for a trespasser compared to an invitee or licensee.

Statute of Limitations

In all personal injury cases - including those involving a person who was injured on another person's property - the victim has four years from the date of the injury within which to file a lawsuit.

If the injury resulted in death, the victim's eligible loved ones have two years from the date of the death to file a claim.

We urge injured victims and their families to contact our attorneys in Daytona Beach as soon as possible to find out if they have a case.

Shared Fault: Florida's Pure Comparative Negligence Rule

Florida is one of several states that has enacted the pure comparative negligence statute. What this means is that all parties involved will be evaluated to determine if they played any role in contributing to the accident. In some cases, the injury victim will be assigned some share of the blame.

If you are assigned some share of the blame, any award you receive will be reduced by that amount. For example, if you are awarded $100,000 but were assigned 25 percent of the blame, you would only be eligible for $75,000 in damages.

It is important to note that this statute allows injured victims to seek compensation only if they were less than 51 percent at fault.

There Are Four Main Requirements
for a Premises Liability Lawsuit

Ownership

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.

Negligence

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 the property.

Harm

Your insurance company or a judge will also require proof that you or a loved one truly were harmed. Our Daytona Beach attorneys can establish this through testimony and by providing medical documentation.

Responsibility

One of the most difficult things to prove is that the defendant was responsible for your injury. Our personal injury attorneys can investigate and collect evidence connecting your injuries to the defendant's action or inaction.

In fact, medical costs for falls totaled more than $50 billion in 2015.

*According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

  • Unsafe Construction
  • Ceiling Collapses
  • Balcony Collapses
  • Inadequate Maintenance
  • Retail Store Liability
  • Swimming Pool Accidents
