Holiday Parties and Premises Liability Claims

Monday, December 5th, 2022

At MLG Injury, our personal injury attorneys in Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi know that the holiday season brings a substantial increase in parties throughout the southeast and the rest of the country.

Whether it is a private party hosted in someone’s home, a work party hosted on public property, or one or the other reserved in a rented event space, most of these celebrations start and end without incident — which is exactly how everyone should enjoy them.

Unfortunately, when negligence is a factor, attendees can get hurt without notice. When they do, they need to know their rights to pursue compensation for their damages.

Can I Pursue a Friend or Family Member for Injuries that Occurred on Their Property?

When negligence is a factor on someone’s property — especially someone you know, like a neighbor, friend, or family member — it can be an awkward situation to hold them accountable for your damages.

That is why we are here. Our experienced personal injury lawyers can take the lead in negotiating with your friend or loved one’s homeowner’s insurance company directly. This will remove both you and the property owner from the equation, so you can preserve your personal relationship while pursuing the financial compensation necessary to cover your complete damages.

Can I Pursue a Restaurant or Bar for Injuries that Occurred During a Christmas Party?

Property owners and operators owe all visitors a duty of care when they are on the premises. That means providing adequate security for a large event and keeping the property free from hazards that can cause them harm. That may include slip, trip, and fall hazards and/or display and other injury hazards. When they do not uphold their duty, and you or someone you love is hurt as a result, you deserve the opportunity to pursue their property insurance coverage for your full financial recovery.

We can help you understand your legal rights and options to pursue the negligent party that caused your injuries, so you can make informed decisions about your case and your financial recovery.

Are Property Owners Always at Fault for Premises Liability Claims?

Monday, January 10th, 2022

At MLG Injury, our Florida personal injury attorneys know that there may be some confusion when it comes to determining who is responsible for premises liability claims.

When most people think of premises liability claims, the first thing that comes to mind is slip and fall accidents.

While it is true that slip, trip, and fall accidents and injuries fall under premises liability laws, these types of claims can also include injuries or fatalities that result from negligent security, amusement park accidents, swimming pool incidents that involve drownings or near-drownings,  and even dog bites.

When any of these incidents occur, and injuries or fatalities result, most victims assume the property owner is liable for their damages and the corresponding financial recovery.

That is why we are here.

At MLG Injury, our skilled personal injury lawyers in Florida review each of our client’s cases to provide a customized legal strategy to pursue each liable party, which may include, but may not be limited to, the property owner.

Here is what our Florida residents need to know about premises liability claims.

Who Can Be Held Liable for Premises Liability Claims in Florida?

Property owners may be held liable for premises liability claims in Florida, but they are not the only ones.

Depending on the cause and circumstances of the injury or fatality that occurred, homeowners, landlords, property managers, maintenance workers, manufacturers, concert organizers, and event coordinators may be responsible for the victim’s financial recovery or their surviving family member’s damages.

If you have been injured on private, public, or government property in Florida because of another person, party, or entity’s negligence, talk with our skilled personal injury lawyers today to understand your legal rights and options to hold the liable parties accountable for your financial recovery.

Our dedicated Florida personal injury attorneys are available to discuss your case during a free consultation, and never charge any upfront legal fees. We only get paid after you receive compensation for your complete damages.
