PREMISES LIABILITY CLAIMS
Property owners in the state of Florida have specific responsibilities to individuals entering their premises. However, there are different responsibilities towards tenants, patrons, guests, and trespassers.
What Does Premises Liability Cover?
The steps taken by a property owner to protect someone on their property are based on the visitor’s status (the reason for their presence there.) If you have not been invited to the property or if you are a trespasser, the landowner can refrain from causing you any wanton/wilful injury. The exception is a child attracted to something like a heap of construction debris or a pool on that premises.
On the other hand, if you are a business visitor or a member of the public and someone has invited you to their property, the property owner has a greater responsibility towards you. They are not obligated to look for any situations or conditions that might harm you. However, they must determine whether any dangerous conditions exist on their property that could potentially cause harm. The landlord or owner needs to inspect and repair all common passageways, elevators, stairways, and other common areas.
