If you are ever injured on someone else’s property in the Pompano Beach area because they were negligent, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical bills and related losses. Schedule a consultation with Pompano Beach premises liability attorney Brian L. Elstein of Elstein Legal to learn more.
Pompano Beach Premises Liability Cases: What You Need to Know
The specifics of premises liability laws can vary somewhat from one state to another. Generally, they require that property owners or managers maintain their properties to a reasonable degree to ensure hazards do not put legally-permitted guests at risk. They must also vigilantly monitor for hazards, eliminating any they find swiftly. If a hazard cannot be eliminated, perhaps because it is an inherent part of the property (such as dangerous chemicals at a plant), property owners must alert guests to the presence of the hazard.
You may be injured if a property owner neglects their responsibility. Be aware that a property owner also has to ensure that those authorized prevent hazards from causing accidents are equipped to do so. If you were injured at a store because an employee failed to clean up a spill in a timely manner, ownership may still be technically liable from a legal perspective, as an employee is an extension of ownership in this context.
The Role of a Premises Liability Law Firm in the Pompano Beach Area
You are not always able to seek compensation when you are injured on someone else’s property. Under Florida law, you could only be eligible for compensation after slipping on a “transitory substance” if you can “prove that the business establishment had actual or constructive knowledge of the dangerous condition and should have taken action to remedy it.”
This is one reason to enlist the help of a Pompano Beach premises liability lawyer if you believe you may have a valid case. Brian L. Elstein can review your case and determine if you have reason to file a claim. If it does appear you were injured because a property owner was unreasonably negligent, attorney Elstein is prepared to conduct a thorough investigation to generate evidence proving negligence. Brian Elstein can account for all your relevant losses to determine how much compensation you can request.
