Premises Liability Attorney
in Sarasota, Florida
Commercial and residential property owners and managers have a duty to maintain their homes, stores, and general grounds in good repair — or to properly warn visitors if there are known hazards to be avoided. When property owners fail to do so and you suffer harm as a result, you may have the right to seek compensation for your injuries. At the Law Office of Roger L. Young, P.A., I have experience representing people in the Sarasota area and throughout Florida who’ve been injured on someone’s property due to the owner’s negligence. I possess an impressive knowledge of Florida premises liability laws and will seek to hold the responsible property owner accountable.
I Strive to Help You Prove Negligence
When I represent you in a premises liability case, I must be able to prove that the property owner was negligent — that the owner, whether a person or business, failed to use reasonable care to maintain the property safe for visitors. Visitors are those such as invitees and licensees who have a legal right to be on someone else’s property. Not all such accidents, however, automatically make property owners liable: you must be able to show that the owner knew or should have reasonably known that unsafe conditions existed and failed to remedy them and that those conditions were the cause of your injury.

I Expertly Advise Clients Injured in a Range of Accidents
Slip and fall accidents are the most common type of premises liability cases. They can be caused by a wide range of hazardous conditions, such as wet floors, cracked pavement, uneven steps, and snow- and ice-covered sidewalks. Falls on these surfaces can result in injuries that range in severity from cuts and bruises to broken bones and head trauma. If you’ve slipped and fallen on someone’s premises, I will seek to hold the property owner accountable for the harm you’ve suffered.
Premises liability suits may also be brought for other types of property accidents, involving injuries caused by:
Construction zone conditions
Elevator or escalator failures
Exposure to toxic substances
For any injuries suffered on someone’s premises in which the property owner can be held liable, I will seek full, fair compensation for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other relevant damages.
Determined Advocate Takes a Detailed Approach
To succeed in your case, I undertake a full investigation of the circumstances behind your accident. That may include:
Consulting medical professionals to verify the extent of your injuries and the cost of recovery
Photographing the scene of your accident and preserving other evidence
Researching whether anyone else has been injured in the same location, or if anyone has previously complained about the property’s condition
I have helped clients file suit against property owners, tenants, landlords, security guards and companies, management companies, and other at-fault parties in premises liability claims. In all cases, I will structure sound arguments designed to help you receive the maximum compensation possible.
