Everyone has the right to work in a safe environment, but unfortunately not everyone works in a safe building. If the owner of the building in which you work hasn’t made the effort to properly maintain the building, an accident could potentially be disastrous and even life threatening. Whether you’re working in an office or an industrial factory, the last thing you should have to worry about is the building’s safety. If you’re injured in an accident caused by defect in the building, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain, suffering and medical bills. It’s vital to have a personal injury attorney with complete knowledge on premises liability law. The law office of Cutler Rader is committed to helping accident victims get the proper compensation they deserve.
Premises Liability Law is Important to Everyone
Premises liability cases don’t just happen in business environments- they can happen right at your own home. If a delivery person, guest or landscaper slips and falls due to an oil slick on your driveway and injures his neck, you, the homeowner, may be found to be at fault and therefore responsible for damages, i.e., money. Your homeowner’s insurance should defend you and pay damages. Of course, if the injured person was intoxicated or did something to cause the fall, that may affect his claim.
This may seem like a simple case, but the law in Florida is far more complicated and for that reason you need a personal injury lawyer who is highly experienced in these matters. For example, the status of the injured person is important, whether he was an invitee, licensee, or trespasser (or some combination), and the duty owed by the landowner varies depending on the injured person’s status.
Other questions that arise- and are critical factors in the amount of any recovery- are the nature of the condition, whether the landowner knew (or should have known) about it, and whether any warning about the dangerous condition was necessary, present or sufficient. We work with highly qualified experts to investigate whether a dangerous condition existed and to determine whether a dangerous condition actually caused the fall and injury (just because someone is injured on someone else’s property doesn’t mean the owner is negligent). And if there is a case, we work hard to get the best result possible for our clients.
