Fort Myers Premises Liability Lawyer

We all like to imagine that our lives are safe from traumatic accidents. This is especially true when we are indoors. What safer place could there be than inside a bright, well-lit, busy store? The threat of crime is low, you aren’t travelling 60 miles per hour down the highway, and the weather, no matter what is going on outside, simply does not exist as you are completely out of the elements. The indoors bring about a sense of calm and people let their guards down. However, accidents can still happen even in what appears to be the most controlled environment, and crime, including violent assault, happens in nightclubs, restaurants, and convenient stores no matter where you are in the country. Thousands of people are injured due to unsafe premises conditions every day. If you were injured, you may be able to receive substantial financial compensation to cover the injuries that were caused by another’s negligence, contact our experienced Fort Myers premises liability lawyers.

Types of Premises Liability Accidents in Fort Myers

When the phrase “premises liability” is uttered, the first thought that enters your head may be slip and falls. However, not all premises liability accidents involve slip and falls. While fall certainly are one of the most common and most traumatic types of premises accidents, there are a variety of other types of traumatic events that are often the fault of the business owner or property owner responsible for ensuring the safety of their place of business. These types of accidents include drownings at swimming pools, toxic chemical exposures, collapsed ceilings, elevator accidents, stair collapses or escalator accidents, amusement park accidents, and negligent security, among others. There were 512 assaults in Fort Myers in 2013, according to CityData.com, which means that negligent security can be a real problem in Fort Myers establishments. All business owners have a responsibility to create an environment that is safe for all of their invitees during times of business, including safety measures to prevent crime.

Recovering Compensation for Injuries

In order to win a personal injury lawsuit for a slip and fall, for example, we must be able to show that the business owner had actual or constructive knowledge of the poor or unsafe condition of their establishment (Florida statute 768.0755). For example, actual knowledge would be if an employee told the business owner, or they saw for themselves, that the lighting in a stairwell was out, which could end in a trip and fall down a nasty set of stairs. Constructive knowledge would be if the business owner knew that a shelving unit in their store had fallen over due to a worn out joint. The owner might not see that the shelf had collapsed on a given day, spilling contents everywhere and causing a serious tripping hazard, but they had constructive knowledge that the shelf was not safe and could cause injury.
