Types of Cases Our Boca Raton Premises Liability Attorneys Handle

The personal injury lawyers at Donaldson & Weston have achieved successful outcomes in a variety of complex premises liability claims. With proven settlement negotiation strategies and many years of litigation experience, our attorneys have what it takes to help you and your family fight for the maximum compensation.

We handle the following types of premises liability cases:

  • Slips and Falls: Slips and falls account for more than 1 million hospitalizations each year in the United States. Many of these accidents could have been prevented if property owners, managers, and business staff had exercised reasonable care.

  • Inadequate Security: If hotels or other establishments fail to provide adequate security, anyone who is attacked and injured as a result may have grounds for a premises liability claim.

  • Obstructions in Walkways: Leaving objects in walkways can contribute to trip and fall accidents, which often result in broken bones, brain trauma, and other devastating injuries.

  • Poor Maintenance: Business establishments are required to perform regular maintenance to ensure their premises are safe and in compliance with the relevant building codes. Uneven floors, cracked sidewalks, concealed holes, leaking roofs, and other hazards must be addressed in a reasonable amount of time, and adequate warnings must be posted until those dangerous conditions are remedied.

  • Stairways That Lack Proper Handrails: If you were injured on a stairway that lacked a proper handrail, you may be entitled to compensation for any medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages you have incurred.

  • Building Code Violations: Businesses in Florida must comply with strict building code regulations, or they risk being named in a premises liability lawsuit if their lack of compliance leads to an injury.

  • Poor Lighting: Inadequate lighting on stairways, in particular, can be hazardous.

  • Faulty Elevators and Escalators: If you were hurt on a malfunctioning escalator or elevator, contact Donaldson & Weston at 561-299-3999 to discuss your options for pursuing compensation.
