Premises Liability

Florida Premises Liability Attorney John M. Howe, West Palm Beach

Parking garage underground interiorProperty owners, retailers, apartment managers, and parking lot companies can be held liable for unsafe conditions that lead to injury or death of patrons and customers. Even in cases involving assault or theft, a failure to provide an appropriate level of security may constitute a violation of a duty to provide care for “business invitees” and the general public.

At the Law Office of John M. Howe, we investigate accidents involving hazardous conditions or a lack of security that leads to injuries or fatalities. As your attorney, John M. Howe interviews eyewitnesses, reviews surveillance film, consults safety experts, and works with other professionals in exposing negligence on the part of property owners.

In many cases, however, property owners may attempt to remove incriminating evidence or fire employees who witnessed what happened in an attempt to avoid financial liability. That’s why it’s important to hire a lawyer who can begin legal proceedings quickly to preserve evidence and protect your interests.
