PRACTICE AREA:

Premises Liability

Unsafe Premises

In Florida, property owners, managers and landlords have a responsibility to keep their property secure and free of hazards. Property owners legally have a responsibility to provide a safe premises to everyone who uses them. Since 1991, the Zappitell Law Firm has been protecting the rights of tenants, customers, clients, guests, employees and other individuals who have been hurt as a result of unsafe property conditions.

Strained spinal muscles, bruised or broken tailbones, open and closed head wounds — these are common types of injuries we see our clients suffering from when they come to our law firm after their slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents. While extremely painful, these injuries are also very expensive to treat, which is why financial support is crucial for our clients.

For three decades, our AV-rated* founding partner, David J. Zappitell, has successfully obtained tens of millions of dollars in recoveries for our  injured Florida clients.

Our firm has handled all types of premises liability cases involving injuries resulting from:

  • Wet surfaces
  • Spills
  • Broken handrails
  • Defective stairs
  • Poor lighting
  • Unevenly paved walkways
  • Defective sidewalks, potholes, or unmaintained parking lots
  • Unmarked hazards like curbs and steps
  • Inadequate security
  • Slippery surfaces
  • Icy or other slippery surfaces
  • Wrong use of floor coverings
  • Poorly installed carpet
  • Debris
  • Poorly secured retail displays

A property can be negligent by:

  • Failing to inspect the premises on a regular basis
  • Failing to supervise employees and/or contractors properly
  • Failing to maintain premises
  • Failing to staff properly
  • Failing to staff the property properly
  •  Failing to remedy broken or defective things timely
  • This includes homes, apartments, and condos
