Legal Compensation for Your Injuries
Premises Liability cases in Brevard County can be very complicated and it is important to remember that just because an injury was sustained on another’s property doesn’t always mean the cause was negligence. If there was a dangerous condition at the time of the accident, and the dangerous condition was left uncorrected by the property owner, it must be proved. Being hurt or falling due to one’s own inattention or circumstances outside of the property owners’ control is unfortunately not sufficient grounds for a premises liability claim.
