If you or a loved one has been injured on a commercial, public or residential property, you may be entitled to compensation. Under Florida law, property owners and managers are required to keep their premises safe and free of known hazards. When they fail in this regard and people are injured, they can be held accountable.
At Jorgensen Gibbons, P.A., we provide dedicated legal representation in premises liability cases in Saint Petersburg, Sarasota, Bradenton, Tampa and the surrounding areas. We help victims assess the true costs of their injuries, prove property owners liable, and negotiate favorable and prompt settlements with property owners and insurance companies. When necessary, we aggressively advocate for our clients in court.
If you have been injured on someone else's property, you may have already been asked by the company or its insurer to agree to a settlement. Do not sign any agreements before talking to an experienced premises liability lawyer about your rights.
In Florida, property owners must keep their premises safe and secure. The law requires them to correct any hazards on the property and adequately warn guests of dangers. Landowners may be liable for property negligence if they either knew or should have known of a hazard and failed to repair it or sufficiently warn guests, resulting in injuries.
