If you have been injured while visiting a restaurant, hotel, or other business establishment, you may have a negligent security or premises liability case in Homestead or your community. This may also be the case if your injuries were caused in someone’s home or when you were visiting a condo or apartment building.
To launch a premises liability case, however, you need to be able to show that the property owner was negligent in providing you with a safe space. In some cases, there may be signs that a property owner has not taken due care to protect visitors to their property. For example, someone who has been injured may notice:
- Poor lighting on a property
- Debris on stairways and walkways
- Lack of fencing or gate around a pool area
- Dogs running loose on a property
- Shelving not properly attached
- Work areas and dangerous areas not blocked off or clearly marked
- No railings on ramps and stairways
- Spills on the floor that have not been mopped off
- No warning signs for dangers
- Uneven floors
- Poorly maintained property
- Broken gates, stairs, windows, and doors
All of these signs could be signs that a property owner has been negligent in providing a safe environment for visitors. If a visitor is injured as a result of this type of recklessness, they may have a legal claim against the property owner and any other liable parties.
