The Responsibility Of Store Owners
Every restaurant and retail company in Florida is responsible for keeping their premises safe. If anything becomes unsafe, the owner is responsible for fixing the issue as soon as possible or placing proper warning signs until it can be fixed.
Some common hazards you could encounter include:
- Wet or oily floors
- Cracked or uneven floors
- Parking lot defects
The store or restaurant could be liable for other injuries that occur on their premises such as falling items, food poisoning or assault in parking lots without proper lighting or security.
An Attorney’s Role In Your Case
Proving that the store was at fault can be difficult. Evidence might disappear quickly if it is an easily fixable problem such as a wet floor. That is why it’s important to speak with a lawyer immediately to start investigating and preparing a claim as soon as possible.
You may also be going against a large entity. Even smaller stores or local restaurants will have their own attorneys and insurance companies defending them. This should not deter you from filing a claim however. The Law Offices of Cameron D. Simpson, P.A., have the resources and experience to succeed in any personal injury case, regardless of the opposing party.
