At Your Advocates, our Fort Myers personal injury attorneys are adamant about providing top-level representation for people who have been injured while on someone else’s property.

Some of the damages we want to recover for our clients include:

  • Medical bills
  • Rehabilitation fees
  • Cost of life adjustments
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

Types of Premises Liability Cases

Premises liability claims are centered around a dangerous hazard on a piece of property that should not have been there had reasonable safety efforts had been taken. If it can be determined that the property controller was negligent in their duty to protect visitors and guests, then the argument can be made that they should pay for the injured party’s damages. For example: I retail store manager that does not clean up a spill near the cash registers after one guest already pointed it out to them is being negligent in their duty to appropriately react to dangers, even those they did not directly cause.

Premises liability cases usually originate from one of the following:

  • Slip and fall injuries: Spills, loose carpeting, wires and cords across walkways, and more can all cause perhaps the most common type of premises liability claims: slip and fall injuries.
  • Dog bite and animal attacks: A homeowner has the right to own and raise a pet to their liking, but any welcome guests to that home have the right to be protected from that pet’s aggression.
  • Inefficient security: If there is reason to believe that a location requires security to protect its patrons, the lack of that necessary security personnel could be indicative of a property owner’s negligence.
  • Toxic exposure: Many retail and office locations use strong chemical cleaners on a routine basis. When handled incorrectly, these same cleaners can put visitors at undue risk of toxic exposure.

Your Advocates are here to help your claim.

A person who has suffered an injury on someone else’s property may be up against that property owner, a parent company, and/or an insurance company. With opposition on that scale, it is crucial that you take the right steps to prepare your case.
