NEGLIGENCE

Who has not seen this before?

Unsafe property conditions cause personal injuries

Property owners have a duty to keep their premises in reasonably good condition and to warn visitors of any danger that the owner knew about or should have known about.  Premises Liability is when private or public property owners know about a dangerous condition on their property but fail to fix it. An unknowing visitor who is injured by that condition is entitled to be compensated.  These premises liability claims include—
  • Slip and fall
  • Escalator or stairway accidents
  • Elevator malfunctions
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Environmental hazards and toxic substances
  • Dog and animal attacks
At Woodruff Injury Law, we handle claims arising from dangerous property conditions throughout the Tampa Bay area and the West Coast of Florida.

Inadequate security measures lead to physical assault and battery

Premises liability claims can also be based on dangers such as lack of security measures for guests.  When owners or managers of property open to the public know that there is a danger of harm at certain times or locations within their control, they have a duty to warn and protect their lawful visitors and guests.  Failure to do so can result in serious injuries from assaults or other types of physical attack.  Robberies, sexual assault, and other types of attacks may be preventable when appropriate security measures are in place.  Attorney Tom Woodruff and the Woodruff Injury Law firm has handled numerous cases on behalf of victims of serious crimes due to inadequate security in private and public buildings in unsafe areas.
