Florida Premises Liability Laws

Holding land owners responsible

Tort laws are governed by Florida statutes contained in Title XLV. Under Florida law, negligent parties must pay compensation for injuries they cause. Since 1995, our team at Viles & Beckman, LLC has worked tirelessly to prove cases through the rules of evidence and Florida laws.

Hold careless businesses responsible for their actions

Businesses that open their doors to customers are required to maintain their properties and inspect them regularly for potential dangers. These property possessors are culpable for injuries sustained because of a hazard that the possessor knew or should have known about. Businesses may be liable for accidents that happen in:

  • Stores
  • Malls
  • Restaurants
  • Bars and nightclubs
  • Entertainment complexes
  • Fitness and gym facilities
  • Sports arenas
  • Office buildings
  • Hotels
  • Private schools
  • Parking lots

Whether you were injured while attending a special event, shopping, dining, conducting business or even if you were trespassing, we can help you.

Public buildings, parks and pedestrian areas

Federal, state and local government is also responsible for keeping property in a safe condition in such places as:

  • Public transportation
  • Municipal buildings
  • Courthouses
  • Sidewalks
  • Roadways
  • Public parks
  • Public schools

Duty owed by your landlord

Your landlord is required by law to keep your residence at a certain level of safe repair and to maintain common areas. Let us fight for you if you have been injured in your apartment building or rented home because of:

  • Broken stairways
  • Holes in flooring
  • Slippery surfaces
  • Exposed wiring
  • Fire hazards
  • Construction
  • Dim lighting in common areas
