Florida Premises Liability Attorney
Premises Liability is the liability for a landowner for certain accidents that occur on his or her property. Some of the most common premises accidents are slip and fall accidents, fire accidents, pool accidents, construction accidents, maintenance accidents, and toxic substance accidents. Snow and ice accidents are also very prevalent, just not in Tampa. In 2014, all premises accident cases that went to trial had a success rate that was a little under 50%.

Florida is no stranger to car accidents with over 400,000 crashes in 2019. A portion of those accidents involves vehicles which are classified as “low speed vehicles” (LSV). Low speed vehicles are defined as four wheeled vehicles that do not reach above 25 miles per hour, and their total weight does not exceed 3,000 pounds.
COVID-19 has reached Tampa at perhaps a greater speed than many could have anticipated. It is paramount to slow the spread and reduce potential overloading of local hospitals. While the danger may be low for a majority of the population, the lack of any vaccine makes COVID-19 significantly more contagious than the common flu.
The sting of the loss seems worse when their death was the result of a wrongful act or negligence, such as, by a person driving under the influence or a car manufacturer defect.
Per the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety report on “Prevalence of Self-Reported Aggressive Driving Behavior: the United States, 2014,” nearly 2 out of 3 drivers in the U.S believe aggressive driving is a growing problem when compared to the previous 3 years.
