Florida Premises Liability Laws
In order for a property owner to be held responsible for your injuries you must show that they were negligent in some manner. Generally speaking, Florida law requires that all property owners show reasonable care when ensuring their property is free from hazards. This means that the law only requires property owner show a reasonable amount of care to prevent or warn guests or customers of hazards. As in other personal injury claims, the statute of limitations to file a premises liability claim is four years from the date of the accident. This means you have four years to file a claim or you will most likely lose your right to do so. To learn more contact our firm today.
