People visit many locations around Tampa Bay, either as tourists or as part of their everyday lives. Whether you are shopping, visiting an attraction, or anything else, you do not expect to suffer injuries. However, many people need medical treatment for injuries they sustain in businesses or on someone else’s property, and such injuries can lead to premises liability claims.
Premises liability refers to the responsibility of business or property owners to cover the losses of those injured due to avoidable hazards. Companies and owners must maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition if they invite customers or other guests in. When a dangerous condition causes an accident and injuries, the injury victim can bring a premises liability claim to seek compensation for their losses.
Whether you live in Tampa Bay or are visiting, there are many places where you might suffer injuries in a premises liability accident.

Slip and Fall Accidents
“Slip and fall” is a term for an accident when someone slips or trips on something, causing them to fall. Slip and fall accidents are the most common type of premises liability cases, and they center on the question of a property owner’s duty to care for the property and avoid slip and fall hazards.
Some common slip and fall hazards include:
Wet or slippery floors
Items in walkways
Cords not secured to the wall
Loose carpet or rugs
Dangerous steps, ramps, or stairs
Failure to warn when a floor is wet
To get compensation in a slip and fall case, you must prove either that the defendant created the hazard that led to the accident or that the defendant knew or should have known about the danger and did not remove or repair it. This can often be difficult to prove since establishing when a given hazard first appeared can be challenging.
That is why Lucas, Macyszyn, & Dyer Injury Firm aggressively represents victims of slip and fall accidents – to help ensure they prove their claims and receive full compensation for their injuries.
Slip and falls can cause serious injuries, including fractures, back injuries, concussions, soft tissue injuries, and more. Always report the accident to the premises owner, get the medical attention you need, and call our office to learn about your rights.
Other Premises Liability Accidents
While slip and falls are common premises liability claims, other accidents fall under premises liability.
Swimming pool accidents
Theme park accidents
Assaults due to inadequate security
Carbon monoxide poisoning
If you suffered injuries in these ways, we can help determine whether you have a premises liability claim.
