Premises Liability Attorneys in Lakeland, FL
Slip & Fall Accidents & Other Injuries on Another’s Property
While visiting another’s property, you have the right to expect that you are on reasonably safe grounds. If you are injured because of an unforeseen hazard or any failure by the property owner to reasonably maintain or repair the premises, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. These are referred to as premises liability cases and involve property owner liability for injuries sustained by invitees, visitors, social guests, and even trespassers.
If you were injured in a slip and fall accident, bitten by a dog, or harmed because of inadequate security measures at a residential or commercial property, our Lakeland premises liability attorneys may be able to help.

Duty of Care Owed by Florida Property Owners
In Florida, property owners have a certain duty of care owed to persons on their property:
- Invitees and business visitors, such as customers at a store, are owed the highest duty of care with regular inspections and maintenance required to avoid hazardous conditions.
- Social guests must be protected and warned of potential hazards.
- Trespassers should not be intentionally harmed (some exceptions apply, such as acts in defense of self or others).
Premises liability cases can be highly complex. Establishing the duty of care and whether this duty was breached can be challenging, but our Lakeland premises liability lawyers have a firm understanding of Florida statutes and case law on these matters. We can identify property owner liability with accuracy to help our clients recover fair compensation.
