If my child was hurt on another’s property, can I sue on their behalf?
Yes. If your child was injured as a result of another’s negligence, so long as you and your attorney are able to satisfy the burden of proof, you will be able to pursue legal action as the parent. Property owners are responsible for ensuring that their property is safe for all passersby, including children. If they fail to make their premises safe, and someone is hurt as a result, the property owner can be held liable.
How can I file a successful premises liability claim?
If your child was injured as a result of another property owner’s negligence, and you would like to pursue legal action, you will want to retain the services of a skilled personal injury attorney who will work to fulfill the burden of proof on your behalf. The first step your attorney will take is to verify that the property owner knows or should have known of the unsafe conditions on their property and failed to take action to fix them. They will then prove that your child was injured and faced significant injuries as a result.
If you would like to ensure your premises liability claim is successful, you will need an attorney on your side who has the experience, skills, and background specific to premises liability claims and the nuances they have. Do not wait to reach out to our firm to discuss our services and how we can assist you to receive the compensation you and your child need to move forward.
What is the statute of limitations for premises liability claims in Florida?
Premises liability claims are time-sensitive. This is because, in Florida, there is a statute of limitations of four years for most premises liability claims. This is essential to comprehend because this indicates that you will have four years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the negligent party involved in your accident. If you wait to take legal action beyond this time period, you will likely lose the opportunity to file this claim entirely. Reach out to our firm today to discuss the details of your case and your options.
