Florida law imposes a duty on property owners and lessors to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition. Property owners or lessors can be held responsible for certain injuries or deaths on their property, even if caused by intentional criminal conduct. More than just slip and fall cases, premises liability issues can also include the failure to provide reasonable security in apartment complexes, shopping centers, restaurants, bars, parking lots and garages. Cohen has filed suit against numerous property owners for a variety of injuries, ranging from sexual assault to fatal shootings.
Example of recent Premise Liability Results:
- $15.7 million for university student assaulted in a carjacking at a apartment complex.
- 6 figure award for poorly maintained apartment complex, leading to tenant injury
