However, recovering compensation is not always as simple as proving that you were hurt on somebody else’s property.

What Should You Do After You’ve Been Hurt on Someone Else’s Property?
When you have been injured on somebody else’s property due to dangerous or defective conditions on the premises, you should remember the following tips, which can help protect your rights to pursue compensation and put you in a much better position to obtain a full and fair financial recovery:
- Notify the property owner of your injuries. If you were hurt on a business property, ask for a copy of any accident or incident report that may be drafted.
- If possible, use your cell phone to take photos of the scene of the accident, including details such as the dangerous or defective condition that caused your injury, the presence of any warning signs or safety equipment, lighting and visibility conditions, and weather conditions (if relevant). Also look around to see if any surveillance cameras may have captured the accident, and ask the property or business owner to preserve the footage.
- Seek medical attention as soon as you can after being involved in an accident on someone else’s property, so that a doctor can diagnose any injuries you may have suffered. If you wait too long to see a physician, it may become harder to prove that your injuries were caused by the premises liability accident.
- Follow your doctor’s treatment instructions and recommendations. Do not put off treatment, as doing so may make your condition worse.
- Keep copies of bills and invoices for expenses incurred due to your injuries, as well as copies of your pay stubs or income records if you cannot work due to your injuries.
Finally, talk to a South Florida premises liability lawyer to discuss the details of the accident and to go over the next steps to take in pursuing your legal rights.

Frequently Asked Questions about Premises Liability in South Florida
Florida’s statute of limitations requires a premises liability lawsuit to be filed within four years of the date that you were injured on another party’s property. If you file suit after the statute of limitations has expired on your claim, you run the risk that your case will end up being dismissed as untimely and you will have lost the opportunity to recover compensation from the parties at fault for your injuries.
In most cases, a property owner is held liable in a premises liability accident. However, depending on the circumstances of the case other liable parties may include a tenant who has control over the premises where an accident occurred, or a maintenance company responsible for repairing or cleaning up a dangerous or defective condition of the property.
