Premises Liability Claims in Clay County

In Florida, all property owners are responsible for maintaining their premises and ensuring there are no dangerous conditions that could cause someone else to be injured. Unfortunately, many property owners fail to uphold this duty, resulting in serious accidents and life-altering injuries.

At the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A., we can help you determine if the property owner (or another responsible party, such as a property manager) was negligent and, if so, can help you file a personal injury claim. Our goal is to help you fight for the full, fair compensation you are owed. We don’t just settle—we fight for maximum compensation for our clients and are even ready to take your case to trial if necessary.

What You Need to Know About Filing a Premises Liability Claim

Filing a premises liability claim is complex. You not only have to prove that you were injured due to a dangerous condition on someone else’s property, but you must also prove that the property owner (or another liable party) knew about or should have known about the condition but did nothing to address it. The property owner may fight your claim by arguing that the condition was clear and obvious and, therefore, you had a responsibility to avoid it. The property owner may even argue that you were trespassing when the accident occurred and, as a result, they do not owe you a duty of care beyond refraining from causing you intentional harm.

At the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A., our attorneys can help you prove your premises liability claim by establishing the following:

  • You were lawfully on the property when the incident occurred
  • The property owner owed you a duty of care
  • You were injured due to a dangerous condition on the property
  • You were not being negligent/could not have avoided the condition
  • The property owner knew about or should have known about the condition
  • The property owner knew or should have known the condition could cause harm
  • The property owner failed to repair, remove, or warn others of the dangerous condition

We work with a team of 6 in-house investigators and over 100 staff members who help us conduct thorough evaluations of our clients’ cases to establish liability and prove our clients’ damages. With every case, we provide personal attention and legal services tailored to your unique needs, concerns, and goals.

What Is a “Dangerous Condition?”

Many things constitute “dangerous property conditions.” Essentially, any condition that poses a foreseeable risk of injury or harm to others could be considered a dangerous condition.

Examples of dangerous property conditions commonly found in premises liability claims include:

  • Wet, slippery, or uneven floors
  • Torn or ripped carpeting
  • Poor property maintenance
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Lack of proper security
  • Defective sidewalks
  • Improperly stacked merchandise
  • Cluttered walkways
  • Loose dogs/animals
  • Unsafe swimming pools
  • Improper/lack of signage
  • Tripping hazards
  • Toxic substances

A reasonable person could be expected to recognize the risk these and other dangerous conditions pose to visitors. As a result, all of the above could be classified as dangerous conditions. If the property owner (or another responsible party) failed to remove, repair, or warn others about such conditions, leading to injuries and damages, the injured party could be entitled to compensation for their damages.

Helping You Fight to Maximize Your Recovery

Premises liability accidents often result in catastrophic injuries, including brain injuries, broken bones, burns, and spine injuries. Victims may need extensive medical care, including ongoing and future treatments. They may be forced to take significant time off work—or they may be disabled and unable to return to work at all. On top of this, victims are likely to experience a great deal of physical pain and emotional suffering as a result of their injuries.

At the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A., our Orange Park premises liability lawyers believe that you should not have to face these consequences on your own. When another person or party is negligent and you are injured as a result, you have the right to seek fair compensation for your economic and non-economic damages, and we can help. Our team works tirelessly to help secure the maximum recovery you are owed for your medical bills, lost wages, future damages, pain and suffering, lost quality of life, and more. With over a century of combined experience, we are well-equipped to fight for you.
