How Can You Get Injured Or Killed Visiting Someone’s Florida Property?


There are probably a million ways people can get hurt while visiting the properties of friends, businesses, etc. in Venice Florida. Sometimes, the issues aren’t necessarily anyone’s fault. Rather, they are just accidents, and the injured must deal with the aftermath. However, on other occasions, negligence in some form or fashion is to blame. In other words, someone else is the reason why somebody gets seriously hurt.

If you sustain severe injuries due to neglect, did you know that you may have the grounds to seek compensation for the damages? It’s true. Contact Goldman, Babboni, Fernandez, Murphy & Walsh to see if you have a legitimate claim for restitution. The initial case review is free, and you won’t owe any fee unless you win. Now that you know who to call for legal representation when a premises liability problem comes to light, let’s look at how some situations can arise.

A Sidewalk Trip

CDC Reports Deaths From Falls Have Increased 30% since 2016

In this scenario, the sidewalk leading up to a person’s home has been pushed up by roots. The walkway is uneven, and the property owner has known about it for months and months. At one point, they had even gotten someone to come out and give them an estimate to fix it. However, they ultimately decided that the price was too high and left the sidewalk as-is. Then, after inviting friends over for a party, a person’s foot trips over the raised portion, and they fall forward, hitting their face on the concrete. This entire situation was avoidable, but the inaction has now left a companion with a traumatic brain injury and one that will impact the rest of their life.

An Accidental Drowning

Florida Swimming Pool Laws

This time, a family invites the neighbors over for dinner. It’s a husband, wife, and their three kids. Two of the children are teens, but the third is barely five. You know, still in that phase where they’re curious about everything. The kiddo disappears for a bit before the parent finally realize it. Then, when they find him, it is too late. He has fallen into the pool and drowned.

Florida homeowners are required by law to take certain precautions to keep such issues at bay. For example, since 2009, people have been required to install fences at least four feet high around their pools, and there cannot be any gaps in coverage. As it just so happens, this property owner’s pool was installed in 2013. Hence, it should’ve had the barrier around it. Had they followed the rules, this accidental drowning might have been avoided.

Hit In The Driveway

You and some others are standing in the garage of a buddy’s house conversing and having a few drinks after being invited over. Then, the friend decides to pull their car into the garage. That normally wouldn’t be too big a deal.

However, this time around, the driver is texting and pushes the gas instead of the brake. That sends their car speeding towards you, and before you even realize what happened, you’re on the ground and under the wheel paralyzed.

A Few Last Things

These scenarios barely even begin to scratch the surface of what could happen on someone else’s property in Venice. But what you should know is this, if a premises liability claim comes from the situation, you don’t have to deal with the matter alone. Goldman, Babboni, Fernandez, Murphy & Walsh is here to help. Call them whenever you need representation when an accident, caused by negligence, leaves you with a personal injury.
