Premises Liability and Construction Defects
Serving clients in Boca Raton, Palm Beach and Delray Beach
Premises liability claims are personal injury claims involving injury and accident on another person's property. A "slip and fall" is the most common form of premises liability accidents; this occurs when a hazardous condition, such as an uneven or poorly lit walkway, causes a person to lose his or her footing and fall. Slip and fall injuries often result in back problems, spinal injury and broken or fractured bones.
Premises liability claims can also arise as a result of:
- Injury due to poor or negligent security
- Dog bite or other animal attack
- Slip and fall
- Swimming pool accidents
- Roof cave-in
- Fires or explosions
- Equipment malfunction or poor safety at a construction site

In Florida, any person or organization that owns property has an obligation to maintain a safe environment free of hazards. When they don't maintain their property, or fail to advise visitors of dangers on the property, owners can be held liable for accidents that occur on their property.
An accident or injury may occur anywhere at any time: at a mall, parking lot, office building, theme park, house, apartment, or retail store. When a property owner or building manager has been negligent in maintaining the property or has not fixed a known problem, this may be used to prove liability in a personal injury claim.Our Attorneys Want to Help you Through This Difficult Time
Our Palm Beach County Premises Liability attorneys offer a free case evaluation to discuss your case and determine how we can help you with your injury or accident. At that meeting, we will offer you advice about your case as well as give you guidelines about what type of financial compensation you can expect to receive for your injury. We will then begin investigating your case and filing a claim against the property owner or their insurance company.
Sometimes cases do not get resolved and in order for you to be justly compensated, we have to file a lawsuit and take your case to trial. Our attorneys are zealous courtroom advocates who are not intimidated by insurance companies or their team of litigators. We have extensive trial experience and can confidently put your case in the best possible light for jurors and demand what is fair for you.
Regardless of how your case is resolved, we do not get paid unless you financially recover.
