Lake City is located in Columbia County, Florida and is known as the “Gateway To Florida.” With a population of about 12,000 and in a county whose population is on the rise (Columbia County has close to 68,000 inhabitants as of 2006), Lake City has become a popular tourist destination as well as a stop for those on route to Southern Florida. With such an expanse of visitors and residents passing through various private homes, shopping centers, hospitals, and many other public places, incidents of injury due to overlooked safety precautions are bound to occur from time to time. In such cases, a person who suffers from an accident on someone else’s property can seek legal assistance from a dedicated and skilled Lake City premises liability lawyer.
Businesses and property owners must do everything possible regarding their premises to warn, maintain, repair, and inspect any dangerous or hazardous conditions present. In the most severe accidents, a slip and fall accident or other premises incident can result in wrongful death, in which the decedent’s family has the right to seek compensation. Being injured on another’s premises can result in steep medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of wages, and other expenses associated with your injury that a quality premises liability attorney can help you receive compensation for.
Property owners are responsible for any safety hazards on their premises that could cause harm to guests or customers. A far too common example is a homeowner with a pool who neglects to take necessary steps to protect children from drowning. Another unfortunate injury could result from a store with a wet floor that did not post a warning to shoppers. At Farah and Farah, our experienced Lake City slip and fall attorneys may be able to hold the business owner responsible for neglecting to uphold his or her premises in a reasonable safe condition for the welfare of all customers.
