Under both the local, state and federal laws of the United States, property owners have certain responsibilities to take in other to show their ethical and legal duties needed to make sure that their environment is free and safe for easily avoidable dangers. Unfortunately, thousands of visitors, shoppers and guests still get hurt every year by occupiers and owners who have one way or the other neglected or refused to take basic safety measures.
In most cases, few among the resulting accidents are minor although few results in death catastrophes, disabilities or severe injuries. Thanks to the law of the land that gives victims of cases like this the right to file for premises liability lawsuits.
In Florida generally, the law requires property occupiers or owners to take proper care of imminent apparent hazards off both their buildings and nearby public walkways. These include homeowners that regularly welcome guests as well as government agencies and public places like amusement parks, stores, or museums. Taking responsible care most commonly means fixing or warning visitors about the dangers of things like wet spills, uneven floors, crumbling stairways or icy steps.
However, if we are to categorize liabilities for unsafe premises, then we will make mention of casualties like, elevator accidents, dogs or other forms of animal attack, poor ventilation injuries, sickness and other causes that are unpredictable but preventable.
