Premises Liability cases are accidents that happen on someone else’s property or in someone else’s building, store, or that sort of thing. If you are injured on someone else’s property, you should speak to attorneys who experienced in the field. At Charpentier Law Firm, P.A. in Cocoa, Titusville, and Melbourne, Central Florida, our attorneys have experience and resources dealing with premises liability cases.
Premises Liability Overview
When a person is injured on property that is either owned or under the control of another party, the injured party may seek financial damages under a legal doctrine known as premises liability.
Under premises liability law, property owners are not automatically liable for harm done to an injured party simply because an accident or injury occurred on their property. In order to prevail in court, the injured party must be able to prove that the property owner acted negligently or recklessly by creating, ignoring, or failing to give proper warning of a hazardous condition on the property.
For parties who have suffered injuries on property in Melbourne and throughout Central Florida, a personal injury and premises liability attorney from Charpentier Law Firm, P.A. can fully evaluate your case and discuss which types of financial damages you may be entitled to receive.
Commercial Property Liability
As a general rule, the owners of shopping malls, home-improvement warehouse chain stores, and other commercial businesses must keep their properties reasonably safe for customers. The areas must be free from falling debris, slippery floors, and other hazards that may cause serious injuries to patrons. Commercial property owners who fail to maintain reasonably safe conditions on their property may be financially responsible for injuries suffered by customers or other parties who are hurt as a result.
Premises liability claims stemming from injuries sustained on commercial property typically involve slip and fall accidents, workplace and industrial accidents, construction defects, elevator and escalator accidents, and claims for negligent security or assault.

Private Property Liability
Private property owners also may be subjected to a premises liability lawsuit for injuries sustained by others on their property. Dinner guests, repairmen, and in some cases, even people who are trespassing on property may be legally entitled to receive damages for injuries they suffered while on the private property.
Dog bites, construction and home renovation work, and falling tree branches are among the most common types of private property injuries that lead to premises liability litigation.
