A legal entity or individual who owns or controls a business premises may be liable for the injury to a person on or near the premises. Premises liability claims are generally based on the negligence of the property owner for failing to warn invitees and other parties of a known dangerous condition on the property that is not readily apparent.
One definition of an “invitee” is defined as a person who is invited to enter or remain on land as a member of the public for a purpose for which the land is held open to the public. Thus, a person’s status as an invitee may be determined by the express or implied acts of the property owner or his or her agents, as well as others with a special relationship with the property owner.
A good piece of advice if you believe you have a premises liability claim, is to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer to learn about your rights. The sooner you act the better, because there are time limits in Florida to file a lawsuit (statute of limitations).
