Oftentimes, people who are injured on someone else's proper do not know where to turn for help. They may even be unaware that they may be entitled to compensation. Under premises liability law, you could file a claim against a property owner if they are responsible for your injuries.
From slips and falls to dog bites, there are many different accidents that could happen on someone's property. These accidents can result from a slippery surface, failure to follow safety regulations, or defective conditions.
In order to prove that you have a premises liability case, you will first need to establish that the property owner owed you a duty of care. This will be true of you if you were legally on the premises in order to conduct business or as a social guest. There are also certain circumstances where even individuals who were trespassing on the property could be owed a duty of care.
Additionally, you must be able to prove that the owner breached that duty of care, and that the breach directly resulted in serious bodily injury. By filing a lawsuit against the owner of the property where you were injured, you could receive economic damages for lost income, pain and suffering, and medical expenses.

There are several theme parks in Florida that attract millions of visitors and tourists every year. Theme parks are an endless source of fun, but they are also places where serious accidents and injuries can take place. The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions was formed to prevent serious accidents from happening at these theme parks, and visitors can seek compensation for injuries that were caused by the negligence of the ride operators or maintenance crews.

Hotel & Resort Accidents
Florida is home to thousands of hotels and resorts, and these places host millions of tourists and visitors to the state on an annual basis. Many of these hotels are also equipped with restaurants which are required to meet the standards of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). If you have suffered an injury or accident at a resort or hotel, your injuries may be the result of premises liability.
