Accidents can happen anywhere and can cause severe injury and distress. Something as small as debris or cracked cement can put you out of commission. Premise Liability accidents are among the more common accidents that occur, and the results can be severe.
You could be entitled to compensation for your injuries, including medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, or other impacts resulting from public, private or municipal property accidents. However, your injuries have to be directly caused by the property's careless actions to receive compensation.
As an injured party or plaintiff, in a premises liability case, you must prove three things:
- You were legally on the property as a guest, contract worker, service provider, delivery person, tenant, or customer.
- The owner knew about the hazardous condition (or should have known) and did not repair or give a proper warning of an unsafe condition. If the landlord made some repairs that didn't resolve the dangerous situation or made it worse, it could still amount to negligence.
- The owner's negligence caused the injury you suffered.
The landlord would not be liable if you entered the property illegally and became injured due to unsafe conditions. Typically, even if the owner was aware of the hazardous situation, the owner is not responsible for your injuries. However, there are two exceptions:
- If the property owner is aware that someone is trespassing on the property and allows it to happen, the owner may be held liable for the injuries as if the trespasser had been invited.
- Suppose a property condition is attractive to children, for example, an unfenced pool, and a child is injured due to the attraction. Even though the child was illegally using the facilities, the owner may be liable for the child's injuries.
Who is liable for your injuries due to dangerous property conditions?
Private and public property owners and municipalities are responsible for maintaining reasonable security standards, regardless of whether it's a public building, a private home, a condo building, or a city sidewalk. However, when safe and appropriate measures are not adhered to, owners can be held liable for personal injuries that result from unsafe conditions. For example, suppose someone is mugged on private or public property. Liability falls in the hands of the property owner for the victim's injuries caused by irresponsible handling of security, insufficient lighting, broken locks, or other negligent security measures.
In dog bite cases, if the dog's owner is a tenant, the owner may be liable, depending on the circumstances of the case.
What damages may be awarded in premise liability claims in West Palm Beach, Florida?
The amount of compensation that can be recovered in premises liability cases depends on the injuries sustained—the more severe and long-lasting the injuries, the more significant compensation. For example, suppose you were injured due to a property owner's negligence. In that case, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, including doctor bills, hospital bills, prescription drugs, physical therapy, and lost wages resulting from your injuries. In addition, you can also recover damages for your non-economic losses, such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life.
