If you suffered serious injuries on someone else’s premises as the result of a property owner’s failure to fix or warn you about a dangerous condition, you may have the right to demand compensation for the damages you have incurred as a result. Businesses, government offices, and even homeowners all have a responsibility to keep their premises safe for those who visit. When they fail in that responsibility and someone is injured on their property as a result, they can be held financially responsible for the resulting expenses and harm in a premises liability claim.

The Law Offices of David Golden, P.A. has represented innumerable Stuart residents who found their lives disrupted by the negligent behavior of property owners.

Why You Need a Lawyer
Premises liability claims can be especially tricky to understand and pursue. You will have to be able to show that the owner owed you a duty of care to keep you safe, that they failed in this duty by not fixing or warning you of the hazard that caused your injury, that their neglect directly led to your injuries, and your injuries caused you significant damages. This will require knowledge of the law, medical evidence, and strategic legal arguments.
An accident lawyer can be instrumental in proving all of these elements and gathering all of the necessary facts. They can take the stress off your shoulders and let you focus on recovering while they handle the legal battle. With a lawyer’s help, you are likely to receive a significantly higher payout than you would trying to handle your case on your own.

Premises Liability Cases We Handle
Premises liability cases come from any instance in which those responsible for a property fail to keep it safe for others. Some of the most common premises liability cases we see are:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Animal attacks
- Elevator accidents
- Escalator accidents
- Falling objects
- Negligent security
- Inadequate maintenance
Most premises liability cases will require a victim to prove the same four elements central to any negligence claim. This means that a negligent party had a duty of care to a victim, the negligent party breached that duty of care, that breach of duty caused the victim’s injuries, and those injuries resulted in damages.
Premises liability cases can be further complicated depending on whether a victim is classified as an invitee, licensee, or trespasser. An invitee is a person who is on a property for the property owner’s benefit, such as customers and contractors at businesses, and is owed the highest duty of care. A licensee is a person who is on a property with the owner’s permission but usually for their own purposes, such as a houseguest. A trespasser is on a property without permission and is usually owed no legal duty of care.
An important exception to the trespassers rule in premises liability cases concerns children, as property owners may be liable for failure to secure “attractive nuisances,” or items such as swimming pools and trampolines that involve inherent dangers that small children do not appreciate.
