Personal injury attorney David I. Fuchs has more than 20 years of experience in successfully representing premises accident victims and their families and friends who suffered a death in the family or have suffered serious bodily injuries, pain and suffering, lost wages, and medical bills because of the negligence of third parties and property owners in the maintenance, supervision, or construction of their property.

David will fight for you if you have been seriously injured and hurt by virtue of a slip and fall or other accident on the property of a third party in Fort Lauderdale due to the negligence of the owner of property. That property could be a private home, apartment or condo, shopping mall, strip mall, shopping center, amusement park, department store, supermarket, gas station, public sidewalk, commercial office building, building street or pathway, park or recreation center, convenience store, or any other public, government, or private property.

Premise Liability

The concept of "premise liability" is a legal theory of liability for injuries and accidents of various types that occur on property. Examples of premise liability claims include slip-and-fall accidents as well as injuries in amusement parks. As an experienced Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorney, David I. Fuchs can attest that premise liability varies case by case. Different factors can influence a case, such as the property’s condition, the owner’s role in the accident, as well as the activities of the visitor or injured party.

Top Five Conditions to Consider for Premise Liability

  1. Visitor’s legal status:
    • Invitee: invited to the property
    • Social guest: friend or close relation
    • Licensee: enters the premises for own agenda with the consent of the owner
    • Trespasser: enters a property without consent
  2. Property condition:
    • Many states consider the property condition when evaluating a premise liability case.
    • It is the responsibility of the owner and caretaker of a property to ensure a standard of reasonable care, which is designed to ensure that guests are safe from dangerous or potentially hazardous conditions.
  3. Determining standard of care:
    • Reason and circumstance for the visitors presence
    • Current function or use of the property
    • Ability to foresee the accident which occurred
    • Owner’s efforts to prevent the accident
  4. Trespassers:
    • Proper care must be taken to guard off trespassers.
    • If danger or perilous conditions are apparent, the landowner does not need to warn potential trespassers.
  5. Children and liability:
    • Landowners must provide a different form of warning to children.
    • Reasonable care must always be given when It is likely that children will be affected.
  6. Landlords:
    • The landlord has lack of control over property, thus is not considered liable of injury on their property.
    • If a known defect or a defect that should have been discovered results in injury, the landlord may be held liable if concealed by the landlord to the lessee.
  7. Legal aid:
    • If you or a loved one has suffered a premises liability injury, you should speak with an experienced personal injury attorney to ensure that your legal rights to compensation are fully assessed and protected.

Hear What Our Clients Have To Say

I wanted to alert others that Mr Fuchs is the consummate professional and Attorney. I was referred to him by a friend as I required an experienced Attorney who knows the laws in Florida and is willing to fight aggressively for the injured party. He was extremely knowledgeable and patient and answered all of my questions and concerns. Unlike another Attorney in the area who didn't think much of my case and wasn't responsive, he rolled up his sleeves and triumphantly steered the defendant toward a settlement we both desired from the outset. I'd recommend him to any individual that also was injured or sustained damages and requires the expertise that Mr Fuchs can offer.
