Should I File a Claim if I Get Injured on Someone’s Property?
If you have suffered an injury in Florida on another person’s property, you may be wondering if you should file a personal injury claim for compensation. The property owner could be liable for your medical bills and more in some cases.
This article discusses the factors that are considered to determine if a claim should be filed after an injury occurs. Speaking with an injury attorney is the best way to determine if you should file a claim and Casas Law in West Palm Beach, Florida wants to answer your personal injury questions.
Property Owner Awareness
According to the legal statutes in Florida, the owner of a property must be aware of the hazard or danger to be liable. The owner is expected to be aware of the hazard or danger if it has been present long enough that they should have encountered it in the course of regular evaluation of property conditions.
As an example, if you slip and fall on spilled food or liquid in a store, the store’s liability rests on how visible the substance was, how long it was there, and what management did to protect guests from the hazard. If a properly trained employee conducting a regular inspection had time to identify the hazard and failed to clean the hazard or mark it to notify customers of the danger, the store could be liable if you file a slip and fall claim.
Failure To Act
The property owner must have also failed to take proper actions to remove the hazard. This could mean they failed to remove the hazard or they failed to remove it properly and completely.
In the scenario above, if the employee identified the hazard and took action to remove it, but failed to remove it all or left the floor wet and without signs to warn customers, the store could be liable if you file a slip and fall claim.

They were able to direct me with medical care questions, and advocate on my behalf with insurance companies.
Alex and his team were my rock after I was hit by a car while riding my bike. They were able to direct me with medical care questions, advocate on my behalf with insurance companies, and really listen on days where I had pain and was completely frustrated with my insurance company and their lack of response. Highly recommend!!!!
