Miami Slip and Fall Lawyers
As a property owner, you owe a duty to all guests, customers and licensees that your property will remain free from any foreseeable dangerous conditions. As a guest, customer or invitee, you have an expectation that the premises you are upon are free of any foreseeable dangerous conditions. Premises liability arises when someone is injured as a result of a dangerous condition on the premises. Most often, this liability arises when a guest, customer or invitee slip or trips and falls while upon the premises. Other instances of premises liability include poorly lit stairwells or hallways, loose railings, liquid or oily substances on the floor, uneven sidewalks and many more. These types of conditions can pose serious risks and cause substantial injuries, including everything from broken bones to serious trauma, to anyone on the premises. Property owners have a duty imposed by law to perform necessary repairs and use preventative maintenance to protect guests on their property. Preventative measures include placing signs around water spills, filling in holes and blocking off uneven stairs or sidewalks.
