Premises Liability in Fort Walton

Call (850) 972-2233 for Compassionate & Experienced Legal Counsel

If you have been injured on another person’s or entity’s property, it may be possible to hold the property owner responsible for the accident that caused your injuries. This area of law is considered premises liability and it applies to owners of homes, apartments, businesses, and other buildings, as well as public property.

Our Fort Walton personal injury attorneys at Dowd Law Firm have more than 100 years of legal experience helping our clients obtain their entitled compensation. We can carefully investigate your case to determine who is liable and the amount of damages you are owed to help you make the best possible recovery from injury.

Florida Premises Liability Laws

Property owners in Florida have a legal duty to maintain a safe environment for individuals who enter the premises. Failure to uphold this duty may entitle a person who suffers an injury—due to the owner’s negligence—to hold the owner liable for medical bills, lost wages, as well as pain and suffering.

The plaintiff must prove that the property owner knew or should’ve known about the hazardous condition, failed to fix and/or provide warning of the danger, and the plaintiff sustained injuries due to the dangerous condition.

Common types of premises liability cases our firm handles include:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Dog bite attacks
  • Negligent security
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Amusement park accidents
  • Elevator and escalator accidents

When it comes to businesses, owners are required to conduct regular inspections, perform maintenance, and identify any hazards that may harm patrons. Similar to residential property owners, business owners are responsible for dangers they know or should have known.
