Business owners and people who lease business properties have a legal obligation to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition. Private property owners and people who lease private properties should be held accountable for injuries that occur on their property. If there were dangerous conditions or lack of proper safety precautions associated with your injury, the property owner or lessee may be financially responsible for your injuries and associated losses.
Examples of unsafe conditions that can lead to injury are:
- Wet, slippery floors
- Tripping hazards
- Poorly maintained stairs, halls or floors
- Lack of handrails
- Exposed wiring
- Exposure to asbestos or other toxic substances
- Lack of cameras, alarms or other safety devices
These conditions can lead to many serious injuries, including back injury, brain injury, burns and illness from toxic material thereby warranting contact with an experienced premises liability lawyer in Boynton Beach.

Premises liability cases also include “attractive nuisances,” which include property items or conditions that are naturally likely to attract children or other individuals, yet have hazardous conditions that present significant risk for harm or injury. An attractive nuisance may be a swimming pool that is not properly secured, construction equipment left unsecured or an abandoned house. When children or adults are injured as the result of an attractive nuisance, property owners may be held responsible, even if those injured were trespassing.
