Nature of Activities
In many premises liability claims in Miami and other Florida communities, both the condition of the property and the nature of activities on the property are important in resolving the claim. When looking at the condition of the property, personal injury attorneys in Miami and other Florida communities look at how often a property owner maintained a property and what steps were taken to keep a property safe. When considering the nature of activities on a property, an attorney may look at why the victim was on the property, whether the property was a business property, and whether there were any illegal activities occurring on the property.
The Flaxman Law Group legal staff has worked on many premises liability and personal injury claims in Miami and across South Florida. They have seen firsthand how much the nature of activities on a property affects the strength of a case. They have also seen how injuries caused by negligent property owners create pain and suffering as well as financial distress for victims. As part of the Miami community, the Flaxman Law Group has dedicated itself to advocating on behalf of personal injury victims.How Will the Nature of Activities Affect my Premises Liability Claim in Miami or My Community?
The nature of activities for which a property is intended will affect a premises liability claim. For example, if you are injured in a slip and fall accident in Miami or another community while visiting a restaurant or a business, your claim may be stronger than if you had suffered the same injury at a personal residence. This is because the duty of care that business owners owe to their business customers is significantly higher than the duty of care owed by the owner of a house to a social caller.
What you are doing at the time of the injury or accident can also have an impact on your claim. For example, were you using the property as it was intended, or were you wandering into an area that was clearly marked as “off limits”? Were you on the property by permission? Were you taking the reasonable precautions that a visitor would be expected to take? All of these issues are ones that you will likely want to discuss with your personal injury attorney.Seeking a Premises Liability Claim in Miami or Another South Florida Community
