What is premises liability?
Premises liability law controls negligent security claims because control or ownership of property – referred to as the “premises”- creates a duty of care to persons on those premises. Under Florida law, the owner of a property or the party responsible for the maintenance of the property could be liable for your injuries if they were caused by a dangerous condition on the premises. A number of factors can contribute to unsafe conditions, including those created by third-party attacks. Recent negligent security law suggests that courts are willing to extend the theory of premises liability for negligent security to injuries arising from injuries at school, work, and, if you live in a rental property, even in your own home.
If you or a loved one have been attacked at school, work, a hotel, or in a home or apartment you are renting, and believe that your injury could have been prevented by the property owner implementing better security measures, you need an attorney that has experience in dealing with negligent security claims by your side to make sure you receive all the benefits and compensation you are entitled to as a result of your injury. You need experienced and aggressive attorneys like Dan Newlin & Partners to help you get everything to which you may be entitled.
