Property Owners Have A Duty To Keep Premises Safe

Property owners and managers have an obligation to maintain their buildings and premises in a reasonably safe manner. This means the owner:

  • Complies with building codes and other laws
  • Repairs broken items that pose a safety hazard
  • Takes action to remove hazards within a reasonable time or when notified
  • Warns people of potential dangers
  • Installs safety equipment where needed
  • Provides adequate security
  • Trains employees to act in a safe manner

When a business or property owner fails in these duties and someone is injured, they have an obligation to compensate that person for the injuries and losses caused by the negligence.

At the law office of Culpepper Kurland, our lawyers represent people throughout the Tampa Bay area who have suffered serious injury due to dangerous property conditions. If a wet floor caused you to fall, a faulty escalator caused foot lacerations or merchandise left in a store aisle caused you to trip, you have the right to seek compensation for your injuries and expenses.
