Premises Liability Attorneys in Jacksonville, FL

Over $1 Billion Recovered for Our Clients

Property owners are required by law to maintain their premises in a safe condition. When a person is injured on the land or premises of another, the law of premises liability determines how they are compensated. The potentially liable party can be a storeowner, factory owner, home owner, or just about anyone who owns land or structures on land. In general, a premises owner of either residential or commercial property is responsible to be aware of and eliminate dangerous conditions on their property. Since business owners aggressively attract consumers to their property, they are often held to higher standards.

In most cases, a person injured on someone else’s residential or commercial property must prove that a dangerous condition was the cause of the accident and the owner or possessor of the property knew or should have known about the hazardous condition. The law determines whether the owner or occupier of property was negligent by deciding if the steps the owner or occupier took to keep the property safe were reasonable.

Premises liability laws are complex and often confusing. Call (904) 637-7721 today to speak directly with a Jacksonville premises liability lawyer at Spohrer Dodd about the specifics of your claim.

Representing Property Accident Victims in Florida & Beyond

The laws of premises liability apply for persons invited onto the property for business or personal reasons, and also extend protection to other visitors, even trespassers. A residential or commercial property owner can rarely succeed in claiming ignorance of a dangerous condition.

Some of the dangerous conditions seen in residential and commercial premises include:

  • Torn carpeting
  • Changes in flooring
  • Poor lighting
  • Narrow stairs
  • Wet or slippery floors
  • Poorly designed or maintained stairs
  • Malfunctioning escalators and elevators
  • Broken or cracked sidewalks
  • Potholes
  • Standing water or ice
