Fort Lauderdale Premises Liability Attorney
Representing the needs of injured victims throughout Florida
Landowners and others in control of property have a duty to reasonably maintain their premises, including inside of buildings and the surrounding lots, and to remedy dangers or warn of dangers that cannot be fixed. When a dangerous or defective property condition causes you to suffer injuries or lose a loved one, the Fort Lauderdale premises liability attorneys at Boone & Davis, Attorneys at Law use their more than 35 years of practical experience at the negotiating table and in the courtroom to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
Types of premises liability
Through skilled and dedicated service, our Fort Lauderdale premises liability attorneys help you recover the compensation you need for all types of accidents caused by dangerous or defective property conditions, including:
- Slip and fall accidents: Slip and fall and trip and fall accidents can be caused by almost any dangerous property condition, from unsafe stairwells to unsafe sidewalks and torn carpeting to slippery pool tiles.
- Elevator and escalator accidents: Accidents involving elevators and escalators can occur because of mechanical malfunctions, negligent maintenance or an uneven steps or flooring, which can cause a trip and fall accident.
- Negligent security: Landowners have a duty to ensure that their premises are safe, including taking appropriate security precautions, such as providing adequate lighting, security cameras, locks or security guards. If you were injured by a third party because of a dangerous property condition that a negligent landowner knew about and failed to remedy through adequate security, our attorneys fight to get the compensation you need.
- Dog bites and animal attacks: Dog owners are strictly liable for dog bites or attacks, even if they were not negligent and regardless of whether the dog has any past history of viciousness. To learn more about recovering from owners and their insurers, please read the information on our dog bites page.
- Drowning: More children ages one to four are killed in fatal drowning accidents in Florida than in any other state, according to statistics from the Florida Department of Health Injury Prevention Program. When a swimming pool drowning occurs in a public community pool, private residential pool, private club, spa, swim camp or school, our attorneys help you identity the negligent parties and hold them responsible.
