Nobody wants to imagine getting into an accident, though unfortunately, accidents can happen at any time of the day, and they can also happen in just about any place in the world. In many cases, accidents occur as a result of a negligent property owner. In these cases, you would file a premises liability claim to recover the compensation you need. Read on and reach out to our Orlando personal injury attorney to learn more about premises liability claims in Florida.
What makes a premises liability claim valid in Florida?
For someone to have a valid premises liability claim, they will have to hire a Florida personal injury attorney who can work to prove that the property owner in question was negligent. This means that you must prove the property knew or should have reasonably known about the dangerous property conditions, failed to take action to fix them or clear them away, and that you were injured and sustained significant damages as a result.

What should I do if I am hurt in an accident on someone else’s property?
When someone is injured in an accident, no matter the type of accident, it is critical that they do everything they can to document the incident. This means obtaining police reports, seeking medical treatment, taking pictures of the unsafe property conditions, obtaining witness testimony, and retaining the services of a knowledgeable personal injury attorney.
What damages are recoverable in premises liability claims?
The two main types of damages in premises liability claims are economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages deal with the cost of overnight stays in hospitals, surgeries, in-home care, lost wages as a result of an accident, and more, while non-economic damages deal with pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, and other emotional damages. Ensure you file your personal injury claim within four years of the date of your accident, in accordance with the state’s statute of limitations, for if you fail to do so, you will most likely be permanently time-barred from suing.
