A Central Florida slip and fall lawyer from Dismuke Law can help you file a claim and guide you through the legal process if the liable party’s insurance provider refuses to pay. We will handle your legal case while you take the time you need to heal.
What Is Premises Liability?
When you are a guest on a property, you expect to be reasonably safe and that no harm will come to you, especially if the owner knows about the property’s dangers. Property owners have a duty of care to protect people on their premises from known hazards.
When a property owner is negligent, and someone gets hurt, such as in a slip and fall, because the property owner did not set out warning signs or try to make the area safe, they are liable. You can make an insurance claim for compensation and even file a lawsuit if the liable party’s insurance provider denies your claim.
