Bradenton Premises Liability Lawyer

Every business owner and homeowner has an obligation to provide a reasonably safe premises for each of their invitees. This means that they must create an environment that is not only safe for agile teenagers, but also safe for senior citizens and people with disabilities. Floors must be kept clean and free of tripping hazards, stairways must have hand railings, parking lots must be lit, and outside walkways must be kept free of debris. When an invitee (a customer or anyone who is on the premises legally) becomes injured on the premises of a property owner, that property owner may be held liable for financial compensation if it is found that the accident was caused by an unsafe feature of their establishment. If you were injured in a premises accident that was not your fault, but happened due to an unsafe premises, you deserve financial compensation to cover your injuries, pain and suffering, and lost wages while you take time away from work. Contact the Pendas Law Firm in Bradenton to discuss your legal options with one of our experienced Bradenton premises liability lawyers today.

Types of Premises Accidents and Liability

While the most common premises accident is a slip and fall on unsafe flooring, there are many other kinds of hazards that property owners must take constant and consistent action to ensure do not take place on their property. Entering a run down or mismanaged business and becoming hurt in the process is not the fault of a customer; it is the fault of the business or property owner. Below are some common examples of how a property owner becomes liable for an invitee’s injuries.

  • Slip and fall: A customer slips on a wet or greasy floor that should have been kept clean. Common slip and fall injuries include traumatic brain injury and broken bones;
  • Fall in a stairwell due to lack of handrail: Handrails must be sturdy and up to code wherever there are stairs in a building. Broken or uneven stair steps are another cause of falls in stairways;
  • Negligent security: Business establishments must take precaution to avoid crime, or else they may be found liable for negligent security. Even specific security camera angles must be used by certain types of business, such as convenience stores, as per Florida statute 173. Another common negligent security issue is lack of parking lot lighting, which invites strong arm robberies. Walmart is consistently in the news for crimes caused, in part, by cost-cutting security measures, particularly in its parking lots. There are over 200 violent crimes in Walmart locations across the country every year, including stabbings, murders, kidnapping, robbery, and even an underground meth lab set up in a Walmart parking lot drainage pipe, according to Bloomberg; and
  • Overcrowded building: Serious injuries can occur when a nightclub or bar owner lets in too many people, causing an overcrowding situation where people can be stepped on and crushed underfoot of others, particularly in a panic or emergency scenario.
