Tampa Premises Liability Lawyer
Property owners have an obligation to maintain a safe environment for anyone invited onto their premises. This includes owners of personal property like homes, as well as business owners and public facilities. When an unsafe situation on a property causes an injury or death, the property owner may be liable. As part of our practice areas at Ligori & Sanders Attorneys at Law, we help our clients who have been injured due to unsafe premises obtain compensation through premises liability claims.
Premises liability laws are in place to ensure that property owners do not pose unnecessary risks to those who are invited onto their property. For example, a business that invites customers onto their property must take reasonable steps to protect customers from injury. Maintaining their parking lot, sidewalks and building to prevent slips, falls and other preventable injuries are all part of their responsibility. The same is true for residential property owners. It is required that reasonable care is provided to protect those who are invited on their property from preventable injuries.
What Qualifies as a Premises Liability Claim?
If you slip and fall because you did not tie your shoelaces, it is most likely your fault that you were injured. However, if you fall and are injured due to a broken step or wet floors at a business, it may be a case of premises liability. If the property owner did not maintain a safe environment and a person is injured on their property, they may be liable to pay damages for the injury.
