Defective Property Conditions
Premises liability claims in Miami and South Florida can occur for a number of reasons. They can occur due to dog bites, for example, or due to defective conditions on a property. They can also occur due to inadequate security conditions which lead to a crime. Most attorneys agree that claims arising from defective property conditions have a high chance of success, since there is often evidence of the poor conditions in place. Premises liability claims caused by defective conditions are also one of the more common reasons behind property-related civil claims.
