Practice Area Premises Liability

Under the law, owners have a duty to maintain safe properties. If someone is injured they may be held liable if they knew about a hazardous condition(s) and failed to address it or give adequate notice of a danger or if they should have reasonably foreseen that this condition could result in injury. For example, a business that does not maintain its parking lot properly, resulting in large potholes despite many complaints, may be held liable if someone trips and falls. Likewise, a property owner may be held liable if their dog, which has a history of bites, attacks someone. This is known as premises liability.

  • Q
    What Are Different Types of Premises Injuries?

    A

    Because premises liability deals with such a wide variety of situations, the types of injuries are also quite diverse. They can range from broken bones and lacerations to head and neck injuries to burns and internal issues (e.g. chemical exposure and lung damage). Many of these are painful and require extensive medical attention and even ongoing therapeutic intervention.

  • Q
    What Is the Difference Between Premises Liability and Negligence?
    Click here to show answer
    A

    Negligence involves issues where the property owner or other party owed a duty of care and breached that duty. This breach caused the plaintiff (i.e. the one bringing the action) to suffer damages. Now premises liability claims fall under negligence law – but the difference is that the injury occurs on a real property on which hazards are present. To navigate this complex terrain, make sure you seek advice from a premises liability lawyer.

  • Q
    Is a Tenant an “Invitee” Under Florida Premises Liability Law?
    Click here to show answer
    A

    Yes. An “invitee” is a person who is on a property for a specific reason. In this case, that reason is for housing. They exchange money for this service. Owners must inspect their properties for potential hazards, fix any issues that can result in harm, and post warnings of any potential dangers. Thus, landlords have a duty of care to maintain a safe property for their tenants.

  • Q
    Can an Injured Trespasser Sue You?
    Click here to show answer
    A

    This is a top question for many. If someone enters your property without your consent and is injured, are you liable? There are some grey areas here. First, you are typically not liable for injuries. You may be, however, if the trespasser has reason to believe they were invited onto the property, were previously welcome onto the property, or if you knew the trespasser was there for at least 24 hours and did not remove hazards. This does not seem “fair” but it is actionable. If you know someone is on your property, invited or not, you can be held liable if you do not address safety concerns.

    You are also held liable if a child is injured on your property. For example, under the “Attractive Nuisance” law, if you have a pool and a child enters your yard uninvited, you can still be held responsible if they drown. In these cases, it is best to obtain legal counsel immediately.

Alex Casas and his team knew just the right approach for my suit and handled it with tact and care. Alex is one of the nicest lawyers I've met - no ego-- no pontificating -- no showing us how important he was. Alex got right down to business, with a smile on his face, and completed our claim quickly, achieving the results we wanted. Thank you, Alex, Susie and Staff.

"A steady, reassuring and calming voice when you need it most." Alex Casas and his team are great. My situation was very complicated since I was dealing with a number of insurance companies and multiple hospital bills! The team at Casas Law worked with all the various factors and made everything seamless as well as keeping me informed the whole way. I would not have known how to maneuver the insurance waters so I was very glad that Alex was there for me. I would highly recommend Casas Law, Alex, Susie and the whole team.

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!!!!

Alex Casas was referred to me by a friend who spoke highly of him and his work. As I met with him I quickly realized my friend was right. He was knowledgeable, personable, truthful and had my family's best interest. His compassion and patience before, during, and after my case sets him and his staff apart from other law offices. Those qualities are hard to come by. When you hire him you will find for yourself.

I was referred to Alex after being hit by a car while riding my bike. His help and guidance through a very difficult time has been a gift. I was hurt, scared, and lost as to what I needed to do.
