Explaining Premises Liability
In a nutshell, premises liability means that the property owner showed negligence in maintaining their property, resulting in a dangerous condition.
For example, something on their property needed to be fixed (e.g., rotting wooden stairs) that they knew existed, yet they did not fix it or do anything to address it. If those rotting stairs cause you or a loved one to sustain an injury, the property owner could be liable to pay for your injuries and other damages, such as your missed time at work.
Other premises liability issues could happen that make the owner liable for any damages. For example, if you live in a rental property, and the owner fails to provide adequate security against break-ins, they could be liable if they neglect things like:
- Insufficient lighting in common areas
- Overgrown bushes
- Broken door or window locks
In a premises liability incident, you or a loved one could end up suffering from all sorts of injuries ranging from mild to severe. These can be caused by accidents such as:
- Swimming pool incidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Dog bites
- Playground incidents
- Construction site accidents
- Nursing home incidents

How the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine Can Help with Your Case
Without a lawyer at your side, premises liability cases can be challenging to prove. You typically must demonstrate that the property owner had knowledge of the dangerous conditions that caused your injury and that they took no measures to either warn you or repair the issue. If you can prove these elements, you will then have to deal with their insurance company, which may be working to discredit your claim in any way possible.
As you recover from what happened to you, the last thing you or your loved ones need is the struggle and stress of haggling with an insurance company and trying to prove your claim.
If you decide to work with a Cape Coral premises liability lawyer from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, we can take those tasks from you and manage all aspects of your case, leaving you to focus on your recovery. We will also collect evidence, such as photos of the scene, witness testimony, security footage, medical records, and more, to help you fight for the compensation you may deserve.
We can also show that you were invited on the property as defined by Florida Statute § 768.075(3)(a)(1), which could affect your eligibility to recover damages.
Finally, your lawyer will also work on filing your claim on time so that it does not miss the premises liability statute of limitations, which in Florida is four years, per Florida Statute § 95.11(3)(a). We will also advise you on the best course of action to take throughout your case, which will likely include seeking medical attention as soon as possible.
While you may have four years to file, it does not mean you should wait that long. Call the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine today at 1-800-747-3733 to get started with your free consultation with a team member.
Types of Compensation You May Be Eligible to Receive
When you file your claim, your lawyer will help you determine what kinds of compensation you might be eligible to recover. Many types could apply to your situation, including:
To fully recover from your injury, you may need to take time away from work, which could mean burning through PTO and losing pay. You may be able to recover those lost wages.
Estimated Future Earnings
If your injury is severe enough that it prevents you from returning to your previous job, you might have grounds to claim your estimated future earnings. For example, a spinal cord injury could stop you from going back to work if your job required heavy lifting and a lot of mobility.
Treating an injury is not cheap, even if you do have medical insurance. You may have extra bills piling up and should not be stuck with that additional financial burden. Also, you might have future medical costs for physical therapy, rehabilitation, and other treatments. You can also claim that estimated cost.
If you sadly lose a loved one due to a premises liability incident, you could hold the property owner liable for their death. While we know there is absolutely no amount of money that can ease your pain, you still should not have to be concerned with what to do financially.
