This type claim typically involves a slip and fall or trip and fall or poorly designed structure, resulting in an accident that causes injury. Most of the time an owner of property has a duty to people who come on their property by invitation as a business invitee or social invitee or a license to maintain that property in a reasonably safe condition and to remove any defect that may cause someone to be injured and to warn those invitees of the potential danger. If the owner fails in their duty and someone is injured, then the owner is responsible to the injured parties for the damages incurred.
If a dog causes injury, there is a specific Florida law that applies to your claim.
The owner of the dog that bites you while you are on or in a public place or lawfully on or in a private dwelling, including the property of the owner of the dog, is responsible for damages to the person bitten regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or owner’s knowledge of viciousness, unless the person bitten causes the biting and if so the owner of the dog’s responsibility is reduced by the person’s bitten own fault.
