When you enter someone else’s property, whether as a guest, consumer, or renter, the owner has an obligation to maintain the safety of their residence or business.

Do I Need a Premise Liability Lawyer?

Premise liability law is extremely complicated, especially in the state of Florida. Proving legal negligence is a multi-step process that requires an abundance of evidence that you may not know how to collect. Furthermore, you may find yourself fighting big businesses that will try to take advantage of you. Corporations hire powerful lawyers with the skills and experience to work against you so that they can avoid a settlement payment and a tarnished reputation. The last thing these corporations want to do is shell out money, even when they are the party at fault.

In order to meet all the requirements of a claim, you will likely need the assistance of an experienced lawyer. While you focus on your recovery, your lawyer can launch an independent investigation into the fire, identifying both the cause and the responsible parties. From there, they can gather all the necessary evidence to prove all the aspects of negligence, and negotiate with insurance agents or corporate attorneys on your behalf. With their help, you are far more likely to receive the full amount of compensation you deserve.

Types of Cases We Handle

There are many different circumstances in which you may need to pursue a premise liability case due to a fire. Though many situations involving a fire may be accidents, the property owner still has a responsibility to protect anyone who is legally on the premises. Many cases like this could have been avoided if the property owner had done their due diligence.

Common premise liability cases involving fires include:

  • Faulty or exposed electrical wiring – The International Code Council has a very strict definition of how wires in a building should be installed and maintained. If you were injured, and your attorney can prove that the wires exposed or not connected properly resulted in a fire, you can then pursue compensation.
  • Natural gas leaks – Lack of safety training and improper installation are just two of the common causes of natural gas leaks that may result in a fire. Particularly in circumstances in which you were not aware of a gas leak, you can successfully hold property owners accountable for your injuries and property damage.
  • Faulty or improper use of outlets – Any firefighter will tell you that faulty wiring in outlets can be a major fire hazard. Property owners should not put your safety on the line for their own convenience or gain.
  • Improper fire escape plans – Even if the fire itself was not the property owner’s fault, you may be able to hold them accountable if they did not have appropriate fire alarms, fire escapes, or emergency plans in place, making your injuries worse than they would have been.

A lawyer from Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller & Overbeck P.A. can investigate your accident to determine how and why the fire occurred and who to hold accountable for your injuries.
