Defective Property Conditions


Property owners have a legal obligation to keep up on maintenance and repairs so visitors don't suffer injury. Unfortunately, many property owners don't schedule repairs until someone gets hurt.

If you or a loved one was injured because of defective property conditions, it's time to call one of our accident lawyers. We can evaluate your case during your free initial consultation to determine if the property owner can be held liable.

What are Defective Property Conditions?

When you visit someone else's property, you expect the conditions to be safe. Most visitors don't know about the hidden dangers on a property until it's too late. Unfortunately, many property owners try to save money by neglecting basic repairs. Our personal injury attorneys can help you win the compensation you need for injuries caused by defective property conditions.

Defective property conditions include:

  • Uneven walking surfaces
  • Spills
  • Raised tree roots
  • Broken elevator
  • Broken escalator
  • Broken stairs
  • Little to no security measures
Proving Negligence

To prove negligence, you must show that the property owner had a duty of care to maintain safe conditions on his or her property for visitors. Next, our accident lawyers will work to establish that the unsafe property conditions caused your injury and that the property owner knew (or should have known) about the danger.

Florida is a comparative negligence state, which means you can still seek compensation even if you were partially at fault for being injured. For example, you may be found 20% at fault for running down a set of broken stairs and receive 20% less compensation than what you would have gotten if you had walked. It's important to understand that each premises liability case is different, which is why you need the help of an accident attorney.

Our personal injury attorneys can help you win the compensation you need for medical bills, lost income, lost earning potential, wrongful death, and other damages.

They have helped me to get the best ending result possible and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for someone to represent them." - Jennifer H.
"I will highly recommend this firm to anyone. I went to Bruce l Schiner and to morgan and morgan, both of them turned me away, and would not take my case. I got Mark Drasites card from my doctor and not only did they take my case, I got $20,000 when my case was done. Mr. Mark and Rebecca took very good care of me and were always on top of everything. I would use this firm again if anything happens and I will recommend them to everyone I know." - TL K
