Premises liability is a term that serves as a catchall for a broad area of the law. According to the general idea of premises liability law in Florida, it is a property owner’s duty to maintain safe conditions upon his property. Maintenance of safe conditions decreases the risk of injury or harm of a person who is on the property. Categories that fall under premises liability include those involving structural design flaws, unsafe conditions, environmental hazards, improper traffic patterns, slip and fall accidents, and a wide range of other issues unrelated to security per se. In many cases, security-related premises liability matters involve issues like security standards and generally accepted security practices. Existing standards, crime statistics, event history, and specific risk considerations play a part in determining whether an adverse event was foreseeable.
In further explanation, consider the following examples of premises liability. You or a loved one visit a place, and you are injured – maybe even fatally – by conditions that you could not have anticipated. Maybe this happens in a warehouse, a vacant lot, or a marina. What is comes down to is that someone else’s negligence in observing safety standards has put you at risk. In many cases, tragic consequences are a result of such negligence.

No matter how obvious fault may appear, the issues of premises liability are complicated and sometimes overlapping. It is often difficult for someone who is not an experienced attorney to recognize just how complicated the issue of fault may be. Government agencies have established standards, laws, and ordinances to define levels of safety that property owners must meet. A property owner who fails to meet such standards is liable for the injury of others on the premises. Determining which of these standards, laws, or ordinances applies to a particular case must be carefully analyzed by attorneys. The premises liability lawyers at Porcaro Law are always up for the job.
