Under Florida Statute §768.0755, a property owner is legally obligated to maintain a safe environment for guests at all times. This includes maintaining the structural stability of a property, alerting visitors of any potential hazards, or prohibiting access to high-risk areas. When a property owner fails to maintain a safe environment, their negligence could serve as the basis for a premises liability claim.
If you were injured while on another party’s property, you have the right to explore your legal options and pursue compensation for your related expenses. A Melbourne premises liability lawyer can protect your legal rights and advise you on your recovery options as they become available.

Determining Liability for Your Losses
Determining who is responsible for your economic and noneconomic damages will rest on the details of your situation. Many times, when a claimant is injured on another party’s property, the property owner can be held liable. However, if you were injured on government or commercial property, liability can quickly become complicated.
Your Melbourne premises liability lawyer can investigate your personal injury claim to determine who is at-fault for your accident.
Some of the elements that may have contributed to your injuries and financial losses include:
- Uneven walkways
- Poorly lit areas
- Unmaintained landscaping, which can house snakes and other pests
- Transitory foreign substances
- Slick pathways caused by ice, rain, or snow
- Debris from a natural disaster
- Frayed or exposed wires
When people are injured due to negligence, our law firm is prepared to help. To learn more about your options in a free case review, call the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine today at 1-800-747-3733.
Demonstrating Fault in a Premises Liability Case
In an ideal situation, the negligent party would readily accept liability for your accident and offer you compensation that leaves you with no out-of-pocket expenses. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Sometimes, even if you have a legitimate claim, the property owner may deny responsibility, or the insurance company may deny your claim.
For your case to be successful, it will need to be built on evidence. Your Melbourne premises liability lawyer can conduct an investigation to prove fault and liability.
Evidence that we can use to substantiate your claim may include:
- Security camera footage of the accident
- Statements from eyewitnesses
- Testimony from third-party field consultants, including medical professionals
- The police report made at the accident scene
Your lawyer’s goal will be to prove that because of another party’s negligence, you have suffered quantifiable damages that have impacted your quality of life.
