When you visit a shopping mall, doctor's office, gas station, or another type of business open to the public, you have every right to take your safety for granted. Florida law holds business owners responsible for ensuring the safety of customers or visitors by foreseeing possible dangers and correcting them immediately. They must also have an ongoing cleaning and maintenance program to keep the premises safe for everyone. Homeowners also need to keep their property reasonably safe for visitors.
Unfortunately, some business owners try to save money at the expense of others' safety. Because they don't maintain their property as they should, people can and do get hurt. Common causes of injuries include tripping over an object, slipping on a wet surface, and being the victim of assault due to inadequate security. If you have sustained a serious injury due to another person's negligence, a Stuart, FL Personal Injury Lawyer from Lauri J. Goldstein & Associates, PLLC is available to help you file a personal injury lawsuit.
