Premises Liability Lawyer Jacksonville
Property owners in Jacksonville and across Florida are responsible for taking reasonable precautions to ensure their property is safe and secure—whether it’s a home, an apartment complex, a retail store or a factory. When they fail to do so and a serious accident occurs, the accident victim has a legal right to collect compensation from the negligent property owner.
Premises liability cases come in a variety of forms, including injuries from falls at workplaces, falling merchandise at retailers, dog attacks, inadequately fenced swimming pools, and injuries from crimes caused by inadequate security.
Experience in Property Injury Cases
Florida law allows people harmed in premises liability accidents to recover money from negligent property owners for injuries caused by unsafe conditions. Holding a negligent property owner accountable after a serious accident makes our community safer and can prevent others from suffering a similar injury or loss.
At The Law Firm of Pajcic & Pajcic, our Jacksonville accident attorneys handle property injuries involving:
- Falls — Falls cause more serious injuries and deaths than any type of accident other than vehicle accidents. To bring a successful premises case involving a fall, our attorneys and investigators document the scene of the accident and the property owner’s practices and operating procedures. The Law Firm of Pajcic & Pajcic has had many substantial recoveries for victims of falls, including a million dollars for a Jacksonville Beach widow, a verdict for a fall in Gainesville, and a multimillion recovery for a fall from a houseboat in the St. John’s river near Deland.
- Negligent Security — Visitors to retail stores, hotel guests and apartment tenants have a right to a safe and secure environment. If proper security would have prevented you from being the victim of a crime, you may have a claim against the negligent property owner. Our personal injury lawyers understand the key to a successful lawsuit is showing how companies scrimp on security and safety in order to increase profits. Among the verdicts and settlements The Law Firm of Pajcic & Pajcic has recovered from negligent owners are $2 million from an apartment complex for an elderly Jacksonville woman and a verdict from a Duval County jury for a family staying at a Jacksonville motel.
- Other Property Injuries — Property owners may be liable for negligent maintenance of their property even when the accident doesn’t involve a preventable fall. Swimming pools with inadequate fencing pose a serious hazard, particularly to young children. Drowning is the number one cause of death for children under the age of five in Florida. We have obtained settlements of $750,000 and $2.1 million on behalf of families who lost young children in preventable pool drownings.
