Bradenton Premises Liability Lawyer

Representation for Victims Injured on Another's Property

If you or a loved one has been injured on another's property, you may be entitled to compensation for the damages you suffered. Under an area of law known as premises liability, premises owners - which can include business and property owners - are legally responsible for the health and safety of visitors and guests.

This means that they must ensure that the conditions they provide keep visitors free from preventable harm. When guests or others lawfully permitted on the property suffer injuries or illnesses as a result of a premises owner's failure to provide safe conditions, they can be held liable for the damages victims endured.

Some common examples of situations and accidents where premises liability law may apply include:

Should you choose to work with Carl Reynolds Law, a Bradenton personal injury attorney can help you understand your legal rights as a visitor or guest and how we can hold premises owners liable for their failures or negligence. We investigate these claims thoroughly, and work diligently to establish the fault.

Negligent Security

Among the more common premises liability claims are those that involve insufficient or negligent security. A lack of security, or inadequate security, can subject guests and visitors to the risks of being victimized and injured by third party altercations. These can include assaults and attacks, battery, sexual assaults, and rape, among others.

These types of situations frequently occur on the following types of properties:

  • Bars and night clubs
  • Sports stadiums
  • Parking lots
  • Hotels
  • Shopping malls
  • Apartment complexes

No matter where your incident took place, our legal team can be of assistance. As a general rule, business proprietors are not liable for crime occurring on their property. However, if there has been a pattern of crime on and around the business property, or if the nature of the business makes it susceptible to criminal activity, the business owner has a duty to implement reasonable security measures designed to prevent or deter future crimes.

Examples of such measures may include increased or better lighting, security guards, better or additional locks, perimeter protection and overall improved maintenance of the business property. A breach of this duty is called negligence.

By conducting thorough investigations into the police reports of the particular business or premises, we can better determine if there was a history of crime or violence. If it can be established that there was evidence of consistent criminal activity in the area, for example, premises owners would reasonably be expected to provide adequate security in order to keep guests safe. Their failure to do so can result in their liability to compensate victims.
