Trespassing on Property

Many property owners are galled to find out that trespassers on their property are protected by law. However, this is in fact the case. While trespassers are granted limited protections when it comes to the law, they can bring about a premises liability claim in Miami or anywhere in Florida if they are seriously injured on a property due to a property owner's negligence. Most often, this occurs because a property owner has set up a system for stopping trespassers or has noticed a trespasser but has failed to notify the trespasser of dangers that may not be obvious.

If you have been injured on a property and you believe that you may have a legal claim, you need to speak with a personal injury attorney in Miami or wherever the injury has occurred in order to discuss your claims and your rights. You may be entitled to compensation that helps pay for medical costs, lost wages, and other costs related to your injuries. The Flaxman Law Group legal team has worked with personal injury victims across South Florida for more than 25 years. They have extensive experience helping people preserve their rights.

Trespassers Can File Premises Liability Claims in Miami and Other Florida Communities

In many cases, premises liability claims in Miami and other communities involving trespassers occur because a property owner has set up a system for keeping trespassers out. For example, a trespasser may bring about a claim due to a dog bite in Miami or another community if a property owner has purchased aggressive dogs for the sole purpose of keeping trespassers out. Similarly, if a property owner has set up tripwires or other protection systems that can result in serious injury, a person may have a claim if they have been injured on the property – even if they were trespassing at the time of the injury.

Child Trespassers Have Added Protections Under the Law in Florida

Children trespassers are granted even more rights under Florida law. Property owners have a high obligation of protection for children, even if children enter their property without permission. This type of claim usually comes about as a result of pool accidents or near drownings in Miami and other southern Florida communities. If a property owner fails to secure a pool, playground area, trampoline, used appliance, or another object that may attract a small child and a small child is injured or killed on the property, the property owner may face legal action. Property-related injuries to minors and children in Miami and South Florida can result in legal claims, even if the child was trespassing, because the law believes that property owners have addition responsibilities to keep curious children away from hazards.

If you have been injured on a property and you believe that a property owner's negligence or wrongful act caused your injuries, contact the Flaxman Law Group legal team to discuss your situation. You may be eligible for compensation that can help pay for medical costs, lost income, and other expenses. Sustaining a serious injury is always upsetting, but if your injuries were caused by someone's negligence you can at least seek compensation so that you do not have to suffer financially for your injuries.
