Injured Due To Dangerous Property Conditions?
When you go to someone else’s premises (his or her property), you expect that you will be safe from harm. If you are injured while on someone else’s property, whether public or private, you may have a claim for negligence and be entitled to compensation.
The Andres Lopez Law Firm has helped many clients in South Florida successfully pursue premises liability claims – a type of personal injury claim involving dangerous property conditions. Our lawyer is committed to fighting for the compensation you need to be made financially whole again. Our fresh approach to the law helps our clients recover damages based on injuries they received while on another person’s property.
Claims Against Restaurants Or Bar Owners
A major focus of our practice involves representing clients who go to a bar or other establishment and are assaulted by another patron or a bouncer. Often, our clients come to us with cases involving patrons who were served too much alcohol by the bar, or a bouncer employed by the establishment who used excessive force against our clients.
If you got hurt at a bar or restaurant, you may have a claim against the establishment owner. Talk to our lawyer about your options.
Slip And Falls
We also help clients with slip-and-fall claims involving hazards such as:
- Slippery floors
- Uneven flooring
- Unmarked stairs or level changes
- Tripping hazards
Property owners and managers have a duty to keep their premises in safe condition, free from these hazards. If they failed to do so, and you were injured as a result, you should contact our lawyer to discuss your rights.
Toxic Mold Claims
Mold is a major problem in Florida, given our climate. Toxic mold in your home or workplace can cause major long-term health problems. If you rent, and your landlord hasn’t bothered to address the toxic mold issue, you may have a claim against them. Likewise, if your employer or their landlord allows toxic mold to fester, you may be entitled to compensation for the harm you have suffered.
Claims Against Commercial And Residential Landlords
Landlords in Florida generally have a duty to keep their properties in safe, habitable condition. Tenants and their guests who suffer harm as a result of dangerous property conditions may be able to sue the landlord for compensation when injury results.
These types of claims might involve injuries or wrongful deaths stemming from:
- Missing handrails on stairs or ledges
- Dangerous or improperly maintained playground equipment
- Lack of property security measures such as lighting, alarms, locks, windows and guarded or gated entrances
- Electrical or fire hazards
- Unprotected hazards such as ungated swimming pools
