When you go to a shopping mall or amusement park you are typically focused on enjoying yourself. You are probably not thinking what kind of legal duties the owners of the property have with respect to you and other guests or shoppers. Unfortunately, this type of question usually comes up after you or a loved one is attacked or otherwise injured while in a public place.
At the law firm of Karikas & Kasaris, P.A., we are committed to helping people in South Florida who have been injured because of someone else’s negligence. Our number one priority is your health and helping you recover.
Pinellas County Unsafe Premises Attorneys
When a business invites people to their property the law says that the owners have a responsibility to keep the grounds reasonably safe and free of known dangers. This type of legal responsibility extends to owners of a wide range of places, including:
- Apartment complexes
- Shopping malls
- Grocery stores
- Amusement parks
- Private schools
When the owners become aware that visitors may not be safe and they fail to take reasonable precautions to help protect their guests, the property owner may be liable for the unsafe premises. Reasonable measures may include hiring security guards, installing additional lights or cameras, or constructing new entry systems. Each situation is highly dependent on the facts surrounding the injuries and it is important that you talk with an experienced attorney about your legal rights.
