As the largest city in Florida, Jacksonville boasts an estimated population of 799,875 as of 2006. Jacksonville is located on the banks of the St. Johns River about 340 miles north of Miami and 25 miles south of the Georgia Border, placing it in the First Coast Region of northeast Florida. The city of Jacksonville has a total area of 874.3 square miles, making it the largest city in land area in the United States. Drawn to its many attractions and beautiful city skyline by the water, approximately 2.8 million visitors stayed overnight touring Jacksonville in 2008. Jacksonville is not only home to the NFL Jaguars and a number of minor league teams, but also to two universities, the fourth largest community college in the country, and a four year college.
In a region that attracts many visitors as well as new residents annually, various properties such as department stores, hospitals, private homes, and many other public places receive plenty of foot traffic in which certain safety precautions are overlooked and can cause injury. In such incidents, a person who suffers from an accident on someone else’s property can seek legal assistance from a skilled Jacksonville premises liability lawyer.
