Is a property owner liable for a victim’s injuries no matter where the injury occurred?

Posted By on May 23, 2016

According to Florida case law as of the date of this article, the owner of property is not liable for a victim’s injuries if the injury occurred in the part of the property that was not covered by the invitation.  An owner does not have a duty to an invitee to keep the entire property in a safe condition nor does the owner have a duty to give notice of all hidden defects.

See: Sonn v. Swindal-Powell Co., 88 So. 2d 319 (Fla. 1956)
