Tamarac Premises Liability
Property owners are much more than just owners of real estate. In Tamarac and across Florida, they are also expected to maintain safe property conditions for those who would visit the property. There are many types of visitors to a property who are protected by this law. For example, on a business property, patrons, potential customers, and clients are all protected by this law. Property owners are expected to make a property safe for these visitors. Social visitors and friends and family are also protected by premises liability laws. In addition, some workers – such as utility workers and postal workers – are expected to have access to properties as part of their work and property owners – including private property owners – are expected to maintain safe conditions for these workers.
Property owners also have an obligation to keep property safe for children. This is the case even if children trespass in some cases. For example, it is understood that children may be attracted by a swimming pool and property owners are expected to maintain a gate and fence around the pool to ensure that children do not wander into the pool area. If property owners fail to correctly secure a pool and a child trespasses the property and is injured in the pool, the property owners may still be held partly or entirely liable for any injuries.
