Jacksonville Premises Liability Lawyer
Filing a Premises Liability Claim in Jacksonville
When you have been hurt in an accident, you may be able to file a
personal injury claim against the owner of the property where the incident occurred. The
courts in our state recognize that a property owner has a responsibility
to safeguard guests, patrons and customers against the possibility of
injuries, and if it can be proven that your accident should have been
prevented you may be able to recover compensation. Call us as soon as
possible and speak with a Jacksonville personal injury lawyer from our
firm to determine whether you have grounds for legal action and to learn
what your claim may be worth. At Jason K.S. Porter, P.A., we know what
it takes to get favorable results for our clients.
A property owner incurs premises liability through negligently causing
or contributing to an accident occurring on the property. Slip and fall
pedestrian accidents are the most common example, where the victim trips on debris or clutter
or slips on a wet or greasy floor, often suffering a severe
spinal cord injury or
brain injury. Such accidents are common in retail stores and restaurants, as well as
shopping malls and amusement parks. Premises liability can be a factor
in accidents occurring on residential property as well, such as in
dog bites or drowning accidents in private swimming pools.
Injured on another's property?
If the property owner was aware of a hazard and failed to either remove
it, place a fence or other barrier around it or clearly mark it with a
warning sign, you will likely be able to claim compensation for your injuries.
Even if the owner claims not to have known about the hazard, the courts
will consider evidence that he reasonably should have been aware of it.
Our Jacksonville premises liability attorneys will carefully research
every aspect of your accident to discover any evidence to support your
claim, and are prepared to work tirelessly to help you recover your settlement.
