When is it appropriate to file a Premises Liability Claim
Anyone that is in a property or business has rights that should be protected by the owner of the premises. Property owners are obligated to provide and secure and safe environment for their patrons.
In Florida, there is a statute regarding the obligations of commercial property owners. That statute, Florida statute section 768.0710, states that commercial property owners and cruise lines act negligently by failing to exercise reasonable care in the maintenance, inspection, repair, warning, or mode of operation of the business premises. It also states that the failure of a commercial property owner or cruise line to exercise reasonable care is a legal cause of the loss, injury and/or damages suffered by an injured person.
