When you go out for the day, you are not thinking about what you would do if an accident happens. You are focused on what you need to do – get the groceries, take the kids to the movies, go out to eat with a friend, etc. We expect the places we visit to be safe.
But what happens when a property owner or the people who work for them are negligent in their duties and you get hurt?
If you need a premises liability attorney in Sunny Isles Beach, the Dante Law Firm is here for you. Our knowledgeable and experienced team is ready to investigate your incident and fight to get the compensation you deserve.
Why don’t property owners pay more attention to their parking lots? This is the first and last area their patrons walk through when visiting. If a parking lot surface is not inspected and maintained regularly, people can trip and fall over broken or uneven surfaces. All curbs should also be stable.
A fall onto a paved parking lot can cause major injuries, especially for the elderly. Over 95 percent of hip fractures are caused by falling.
Whether it is a retail store, grocery store, or some other store you frequently visit, they should all be safe. This means that employees should be attentive to spills and wet floors, doing everything they can to prevent slip and fall accidents.
All cleaning chemicals should be stored appropriately and away from customers. All areas of the building should be maintained. This includes:
All displays should be made appropriately. In a grocery store, beer and soda displays are often stacked too high. If they fall, they could cause serious harm.
Restaurants always have to be aware of spills and tend to them quickly. They should also regularly check their plates and glasses for chips to prevent patrons from getting cut.
If a plate is hot, they should inform their guests to prevent burns.
Most of all, restaurant cooks should store and cook food at appropriate temperatures to prevent food poisoning.
Even private residence owners can be held liable to hazardous conditions on their property that cause harm to their guests. They should fix any problems or properly warn their guests of anything that could cause them harm.
Property owners have a duty to ensure you are safe and secure when you visit their premises. If they fail in this duty and you or a loved one get hurt, they should be held liable. An injury can mean more than just high medical bills. It can mean lost income if you cannot work. It can mean you aren’t able to do the things you love to do.
