Fort Lauderdale Premises Liability Attorney
Were You Injured on Someone Else’s Property?
In Florida, property owners are responsible for keeping their premises
safe and secure. This means that they are obligated to fix or remove any
hazards in a reasonably prudent manner, and, at the very least, to warn
visitors about potential dangers on the property. If they fail to uphold
this duty, they can be held accountable through a premises liability lawsuit.
If you or someone you love was injured in a preventable accident, you may
have grounds to seek compensation. Contact a Fort Lauderdale personal
injury lawyer at Kelley/Uustal today to learn more about your rights!
Our firm has more than 325 years of collective experience, and has recovered
over a quarter of a billion dollars in compensation for our clients.

Property Owner Responsibilities in Florida
According to Florida’s premises liability laws, property owners owe
different levels of care to the different types of guests they host –
be they invitees, licensees, or trespassers.
Invitees: An invitee would be someone who has entered the property with the expressed
permission of the property owner. One example would be a customer in a
grocery store. Under the law, invited guests are owed the highest level of care.
Licensees: A licensee would be someone who enters the property with permission from
the property owner, but not for commercial purposes. This may include
friends, family members, or social guests. Licensees are also owed a high
level of care.
Trespassers: A trespasser would be someone who enters the property without permission
from the property owner. Since they were not invited onto the premises,
trespassers are owed a low level of care from the property owner –
or none at all.
When you contact a premises liability lawyer at Kelley/Uustal, we can investigate
the cause of your accident and fight to hold the responsible party accountable
