It is our goal to seek justice and compensation for individuals physically injured due to the breach of duties by a landowner or tenant of a property. It is our goal to seek justice and ensure the owner or occupier of the land is held accountable for not honoring their legal responsibility. The individual or entity that creates the danger or is aware of the hazard and fails to remove the peril is answerable for their disregard.
In Florida, property owners are expected to maintain the premises and keep the grounds safe for visitors. They are required by law to fix any vulnerabilities on their property and at the very least adequately warn guests of any risks. In Florida, a landowner can be considered negligent when he/she knew or should have known of a hazard and either failed to repair it or failed to provide warning about a known hazard. Liability for injuries in Florida applies not only to residential property, but also to those who control commercial premises, vacant lots, and other properties. Property owners have certain obligations under local, state, and federal laws. While these laws vary, the basic underlying fact of them is similar regardless of where you live: property owners have an obligation to keep their land and the buildings on top of it safe for authorized visitors and those with business there.
When they fail to do so, innocent people can suffer devastating personal injuries. The premises liability lawyers at The Berman Law Group are experienced at holding property owners accountable for their negligence.
