Common Premises Liability Claims in Naples / Fort Myers

As veteran personal injury lawyers for many years serving both Collier and Lee County, we’ve handled hundreds of premises liability cases. The following are the most common types of cases we encounter:

Swimming Pool and Diving Accidents: We stand up for the rights of people who suffered serious injuries because of an unguarded or poorly maintained pool. We represent slip-and-fall victims, families of drowning victims and all others involved in pool accidents.

Negligent Security: Property owners have a duty to provide protection from known harms and harms that they should have foreseen. Security measures include security guards, locks, proper lighting and more. When their failure leads to assault-related or other injuries, they should be held accountable.

Failure to Perform Necessary Repairs: Property owners can be held accountable for injuries caused by broken stairs, railings, decks and other items that they have allowed to linger in disrepair, leading to injuries.

Condominium Accidents: Condominium associations and owners can be held accountable for injuries caused by negligent security, poor maintenance or other preventable hazards.

School and Daycare Injuries: Action can be taken against schools and school districts when supervision is inadequate or completely lacking, leading to injuries to children.

Establishing Liability in a Naples / Fort Myers Premises Liability Lawsuit

Proving owner liability in a Florida slip and fall case, or any other premises liability claim, involves establishing certain elements in order to show that the owner was negligent and that their negligence was the cause of your injuries. Below are the elements of a premises liability case:

1. Duty of Care

First, you must demonstrate that the property owner owed you a duty of care. Property owners generally have a duty to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition for visitors.

2. Breach of Duty

Next, you must prove that the property owner failed to uphold the duty they owed to you by acting negligently or failing to act to fix or mitigate a hazardous condition.

3. Causation

You must also show that the owner’s breach of duty they owed to you directly resulted in your injuries.

4. Damages

Finally, you must provide evidence of the damages (medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, etc.) you suffered and will continue to suffer as a result of the injury.

Also relevant in a premises liability claim is whether the owner had knowledge of the hazard that caused your injuries. This is because, in Florida, it is helpful to prove that the property owner had actual or constructive knowledge of the hazardous condition and failed to remedy it.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
I can't express how grateful I am for Elizabeth Estrada, attorney, and Elizabeth Cantin, secretary, for all the hard work in order to defend me in my time of need. My lawyer and secretary spent time explaining each step and what was to be expected. Because of this I felt a part of the whole process and understood what was going on. Thank you so much for all your hard work!
