Premises Liability Lawyers

Tampa Florida Premises Liability Attorneys

“Accidents happen!” You may say this in the days after your feet left the ground and your body landed on the hard linoleum floor of your local grocery store. You may assume that the ensuring aches in pains are merely the price of not watching your surroundings more closely. But before you dismiss the incident as a product of clumsiness, consider this. Property owners and tenants have a responsibility to maintain safe conditions and eliminate foreseeable dangers for visitors to their properties and facilities. They must also provide adequate warning of any dangerous conditions. Before assuming an injury on a business’ property was your fault, talk to an attorney who can properly assess the situation and help you attain what may be due to you.
