Premises liability law establishes that, if you are hurt on someone else’s property as a result of the owner’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. This negligence can come in the form of a failure to properly maintain the property or even the failure to warn guests of a potential hazard.

Premises Liability Lawsuits
A property owner or occupant of a property is responsible for maintaining safe conditions throughout the property. It is his or her duty to eliminate any hazardous conditions or to warn visitors of any potentially unsafe conditions. Property conditions can quickly deteriorate from a lack of maintenance.
With a successful premises liability lawsuit, victims may recover damages for medical expenses (hospital, surgical and ambulance bills, etc.), rehabilitation costs, lost income, diminished earning capacity, property damage and pain and suffering.
Each premises liability lawyer at our Sarasota-area firm has the knowledge needed to win these complicated claims. We can help you hold the reckless or negligent party who is liable for your injury accountable for his or her actions.
Many accidents happen on work sites. Construction sites are particularly dangerous, with ladders, scaffolding, heavy equipment and power tools capable of contributing to serious injuries that could put a worker out of commission. If you’ve suffered a work injury on a construction site, you have several potential avenues of compensation. One is the state-run workers’ compensation program, which is a no-fault program designed to save injured workers the hassle of filing a lawsuit, while simultaneously protecting employers from fielding such lawsuits.
On top of workers’ compensation lawsuits, workers may also be able to file third-party lawsuits if another party independent of the employer can be shown to be partially responsible for the accident. For example, the manufacturer of a faulty drill press may be liable if that drill press caused an accident on a construction site. A lawyer at Heintz & Becker can evaluate your case and determine what avenues of compensation may be available to you.
Stairway Slip-and-Fall Accidents
If you have suffered a serious personal injury as a result of a slip-and-fall accident, an injury lawyer from Heintz & Becker in Bradenton, Florida can help you obtain the just compensation to which you are entitled. Slip-and-fall accidents can be caused by dangerous conditions such as:
- Wet floors
- Poorly constructed steps
- Torn carpeting
- Poor lighting
Slip-and-fall cases are governed by premises liability law because these injuries typically occur on the property of another party. Proving liability in a slip-and-fall accident lawsuit is not an easy task. Our attorneys must prove that the property owner failed to act carefully to ensure that an accident was unlikely, that you exercised reasonable care and that the property owner’s negligence caused you to suffer a personal injury. Whether you have suffered a slip-and-fall injury on commercial, residential or government property, a premises liability lawyer from Heintz & Becker can help you obtain fair compensation.
Victims of slip-and-fall accidents on commercial property may be able to file a premises liability lawsuit against not only the business, but also the landlord or owner of the property. To ensure that you recover the compensation allowable by law, our premises liability lawyer will pursue all responsible parties.
