What Are the Premises Liability Laws in Florida?
If you are injured on someone else’s property, the property owner may be held liable under the premises liability law. This law requires property owners to make a reasonable effort to maintain safe conditions on their property. Broadly speaking, property owners in Florida are obligated by law to maintain their properties in order to protect tenants, employees, customers, clients, and other visitors. If they do not maintain safe conditions and someone is injured as a result, they can be held liable for the victim’s injuries. As a victim, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
A premises liability claim may arise any time someone is injured on another person’s property due to a hazardous condition. Some of the hazardous conditions that may lead to a premises liability claim include busted locks, broken windows, fire code and building violations, poorly lit staircases and parking lots, wet floors, falling merchandise, and other dangerous conditions.
What Are the Different Types of Premises Liability Cases?
A premises liability claim can arise whenever someone sustains an injury on another party’s property. The premises liability attorneys at Page & Eichenblatt represent clients in many different types of premises liability cases, including:
- Slip-and-fall injuries, trip-and-fall injuries, and falls on staircases
- Injuries suffered because a building code was violated
- Injuries suffered because of collapsed decks, collapsed structures, or falling objects
- Injuries suffered because of negligent security at games, concerts, and other locations
- Swimming pool and burn injuries, dog bites, or other injuries related to premises liability

How Can You Prevail With a Premises Liability Claim?
You cannot recover compensation in a premises liability claim unless you are able to prove that the property owner was negligent. Your attorney can conduct an investigation to gather the evidence that you need to prove liability and win your case. To prevail with your claim, your lawyer may need to also seek testimony or statements from expert witnesses.
There are several elements that will need to be proven in order to win a premises liability claim. These elements include:
- There was a hazard on the property.
- The owner (or property manager or other party that was in control of the property at the time of the accident) knew or should have known about the hazard and failed to repair it or warn visitors.
- The victim sustained injuries as a direct result of the presence of this hazard.
After gathering the evidence that we need to prove liability, our legal team will negotiate with the property owner, the property owner’s insurance company, and their attorneys. Most premises liability claims are resolved out-of-court, but if necessary, we will take your case to court in order to secure the compensation you are entitled to by law.
What Kind of Evidence Can Strengthen Your Case?
There are many different types of evidence that can be used to strengthen your premises liability claim. It helps your premises liability claim when your attorney can demonstrate that a property owner violated the law. For instance, property owners must comply with Florida’s building codes. If you are injured because of a building code violation, this could strengthen your premises liability claim.
Try to get photographs of the site where you were injured, and try to get the names and contact details of anyone who saw you being injured. These photographs and statements from eyewitnesses can also be used to strengthen your claim. In addition, your attorney can obtain surveillance footage and other important pieces of evidence that can be used to prove liability.
