Premises Liability

Central Florida Premises Liability - Slip and Fall Accidents

If you have been injured in an accident caused by a property owner's negligence in maintaining safe conditions, you probably have a valid premises liability claim for damages against the owner. Examples of premises liability cases include slipping and falling on a wet floor at a supermarket, injuries suffered in unsafe or unsupervised swimming pools, or even assaults in public places normally protected by security personnel or monitoring. If you have been injured in a slip and fall or negligent security case, contact the Volusia County premises liability attorneys at James & Zimmerman in DeLand.

We have extensive experience with premises liability litigation based on our comprehensive understanding of Florida negligence law, the terms of standard property liability insurance policies, and local building safety ordinances throughout central Florida. These are all important factors in the investigation and proof of claims involving:

  • Falls from porches, stairwells, or balconies due to unsafe building conditions such as missing handrails, poor lighting, or structurally unsound floors
  • Drownings or severe spinal injuries or brain damage suffered in unsafe or unfenced swimming pools, especially when the victims are children
  • Dog bites or other animal attacks by loose or unleashed pets
  • Toxic torts, or injuries caused by exposure to chemicals or other hazardous materials that are improperly stored or applied by a property owner
  • Violent attacks, armed robberies, or sexual assaults suffered in retail parking lots, unsecured apartment buildings, or other situations where the property owner is responsible for safe conditions

The injuries typical of premises liability cases can range from the fractures or damage to ankles and knees caused by slipping and falling on a slick floor to permanent disabilities resulting from falls from heights, gunshot wounds, or accidents in the water. Fatal injuries are also a hazard of swimming pool accidents or negligent security situations.

Our goal in all of our personal injury cases is to make sure that you recover damages sufficient to cover the complete measure of your injuries and future losses. Our experience in the investigation and settlement or trial of premises liability cases can help ensure that you receive the maximum value of your claim.
