What Is Premises Liability? 

Under Florida law, property owners must maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition to prevent people from sustaining injuries. The extent of a property owner’s duty of care depends on the person’s status: invitee, licensee, or trespasser. 


Invitees are those who have an express or implied invitation to be on the premises, such as people who enter a business (e.g., a store) or a place open to the public (e.g., a museum). To be classified as an invitee, you must have entered the property for the property owner’s benefit, such as to conduct business (e.g., purchasing something). 

Invitees are owed the highest duty of care. Property owners must keep the premises reasonably safe, fix any known hazards, warn of non-obvious dangers they cannot repair right away, and regularly inspect the premises to discover dangerous conditions. Because they must conduct regular inspections, a property owner could be liable for an invitee’s injuries if they should have known about a hazard but didn’t.


Licensees are those who have express or implied permission to be on the premises but enter for a non-business purpose rather than for the property owner’s benefit. An example is a social guest or someone who enters a store just to wash their hands (not to buy something). 

Property owners must warn licensees of any hidden dangerous conditions they know of and use reasonable care to maintain the premises. However, they don’t owe a duty to licensees to inspect their property for dangers. 


A trespasser doesn’t have the property owner’s permission to be on the premises. Therefore, they are owed the lowest duty of care. A property owner owes no duty of care to an undiscovered trespasser. However, you cannot intentionally harm them, such as setting up a trap to hurt them. 

If the property owner discovers a trespasser, they have a duty to warn the trespasser of known, non-obvious dangers that could cause harm. 

Additionally, under the attractive nuisance doctrine, property owners must exercise reasonable care to avoid foreseeable harm to children caused by alluring items on the premises. Examples include heavy machinery, appliances, and swimming pools. You must make reasonable efforts to prevent children from accessing an attractive nuisance on your property.

Contact the attorneys at Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers to discuss how you were injured and the compensation you can seek. 

What Is My Tampa Premises Liability Case Worth? 

The value of your Tampa premises liability claim will depend on many factors, including: 

  • The types of injuries you sustained on the property 
  • The severity of your injuries and how they affect your life, including everyday activities and your ability to work 
  • The expenses you’ve incurred due to your injuries 
  • The amount of time you’ve missed from work due to your injuries 
  • Whether insurance covers the accident 
  • The identity of the property owner 

We’ll discuss your accident and injuries to ensure that we include the full extent of your losses in your claim for damages. 

What Damages Are Available in a Tampa Premises Liability Case? 

People injured due to a Tampa property owner’s negligence can recover compensation for their financial and personal losses. 

Economic damages may include:

  • Medical expenses incurred, including the cost of future treatment or rehabilitation 
  • Lost income from work 
  • Diminished earning potential 
  • Any out-of-pocket expenses incurred due to your injuries 

Non-economic damages will cover: 

  • Mental anguish 
  • Pain and suffering
  • Inconvenience 
  • Loss of quality of life 
  • Disfigurement and scarring 

We’ll identify every loss you’ve sustained due to the unsafe condition. Call us today to discuss your injuries and the compensation you can seek. 

What If I Share Blame for Being Injured on Someone Else’s Property in Tampa? 

Florida’s modified comparative fault statute will affect the amount of money you can take home if you share the blame for your injuries. Under this statute, your awarded damages are reduced by your portion of fault. Your right to damages is eliminated if you are mostly at fault.

For example, if you’re assigned 30% of the blame for causing your injuries, you can only recover 70% of your settlement or verdict. Insurance companies and property owners will use this law to their advantage to attempt to limit their financial liability. 

If you’re being blamed for your accident on someone else’s property, contact us as soon as possible to get help. Otherwise, you may receive far less compensation than you deserve. 

What Types of Injuries Can Result from an Accident on Someone Else’s Property? 

Because a premises liability claim may result from all types of accidents – slips, assaults, and dog bites, for instance – the types of injuries will vary significantly from case to case. 

We’ve helped accident victims who have sustained all types of injuries after being injured on someone else’s property, including: 

  • Brain injuries, such as concussions 
  • Broken bones 
  • Spinal cord injuries 
  • Stab wounds 
  • Burns 
  • Soft tissue injuries, such as sprains 
  • Neck and back injuries 
  • Amputations 
  • Internal organ damage 
  • Catastrophic injuries, such as paralysis 
  • Respiratory illnesses
  • Eye injuries 
  • Crushing injuries 
  • Hearing loss 
  • Drowning 
  • Nerve damage 

No matter what injuries you’re suffering from, we’re here to help so that you can focus on recovering. 

What Is the Statute of Limitations for Filing a Premises Liability Lawsuit in Florida? 

People who are injured on someone else’s property in Florida have two years from the accident date to file a personal injury lawsuit. If your loved one was killed due to a hazardous property condition, you also only have two years to file a wrongful death case. 

You may have more or less time under certain circumstances. It’s particularly important to get an attorney’s help with a premises liability claim as soon as possible. The property owner may try to fix the hazard that caused your injury to make it harder to prove your case. The sooner we start gathering evidence, the better chances you’ll have at recovering compensation. Contact us today to discuss your legal rights and options.

This was my first personal injury experience. I wanted to choose a law office I could trust. A friend of mine recommended the law offices of Winters & Yonker, Personal Injury Lawyers in Tampa. Through the entire process Attorney Marc Yonkers was helpful and communication was stellar. I never felt out the loop. I felt confident throughout entire process. Which this month (Sept. 2023) they were able to settle my accident case successfully and to my 100% satisfaction. I cannot recommend Winters & Yonker and or Marc any higher. In short they are firm, fair, aggressive, responsive, super smart and know the numerous ins and outs of Personal Injury cases (which can be quite complicated). Upon hiring them you get a law firm that will leave you confident that your case will be handled expertly and with your interests front and center.

Winters and Yonkers has been a legend of the Tampa Bay personal injury Attorney community for a long time. I was in a car accident recently with my husband, we suffered back and neck pains after two days and thought to get someone’s help. I found Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers through a google search and called them right up. The same day Mr. Winters contacted both of us, listened, and was compassionate to our situation. He helped us through the entire process including getting me seen by a Doctor so we could heal our injuries correctly, and we got our medical bills reduced! Bill Winters, my case manager, and the entire staff were very knowledgeable and exceptional at their work. We would like to express my sincere gratitude to them and recommend them without any hesitation to anybody who needs help, don't try and fight the at fault's insurance on your own. If you're injured and need someone to protect your rights you won't find a better Attorney than Bill Winters at Winters & Yonkers!-Geneva, Tampa FL#personalinjurylawyer #caraccidentlawyer #tampainjuryattorney

My wife and I are work in Mediation and Arbitration but know nothing about personal injury cases. When a young delivery Truck driver who was distracted by his phone hit us at full speed and rear-ended us as we were stopped in traffic on Wesley chapel. We knew we needed to hire the best lawyers with PI experience and expertise in the Tampa legal community that we could.From our first phone call with Bill Winters and then all the way through Trial preparation then Trial, we never felt any bad about our case because we knew Bill and the entire staff at Winters and Yonker would take care of us.Their dedication, innovation, motivation, reliability, unparalleled intellect, and exceptional skill as trial lawyers make them extraordinary individuals. My experience working with them was nothing short of exceptional. Experiencing a car accident is an ordeal that encompasses fear, trauma, and frustration. It's a life-changing event in anyone's life. There was no amount of money that could ever make me alright, because I would give any amount of cash to not have to go through the nightmare that the car accident was and continues to be.It took almost 2 years from the time of the car crash to go to trial, but ultimately the jury verdict that Bill Winters got for my family was worth fighting for. There were so many times over the course of the three years that we actively realized how amazing it was that we felt no anxiety or concerns or worries about our case, because Bill is truly outstanding!If you or anyone you know gets hurt in a car accident, call Winters and Yonkers RIGHT AWAY! And then rest assured that you, your family, or friends are being cared for by the ABSOLUTE BEST legal team in Tampa Bay. Thank you, Winters & Yonker!

Winters & Yonker law firm did excellent work with my injury case. Luckily, I was referred to Winters & Yonker from a good friend after I was injured in a car accident. I did some initial research about injury lawyers near me, but the reviews for this office really stood out to me in Tampa. I decided to call and after a single phone conversation, the choice was easy to make! Not only was everyone extremely professional, they made the entire process smooth and clear. I was at ease with each step of the way because they were always there to answer my questions and keep me informed of what was happening. All expectations were met and my settlement was exceeded. I got much more than I thought was even possible from the insurance company. I highly recommend the Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers, and their team in Tampa to anyone in need of help after a car, truck, or motorcycle accident. You'll be in good hands!

I was injured in a car crash here in town. Since it was essentially a "he said she said" accident case the opposing insurance claimed it was a 50/50 fault. Even though it clearly could not have been my fault. However, Bill worked diligently to get me everything I was needed to get my life back. He worked to get me access to all the doctors I needed and medical treamtment for my neck and back. Plus, a large settlement amount. Bill even took the time to calm me down when I saw the initial amount and cost for seeing my medical bills piling up! He even managed to get them to reduce their bills significantly! Plus, I received as much as possible. Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers in Tampa provided a great legal service. They were strait forward and honest about the approach, and communicated every aspect of the process. The firm took care of everything. I would 100% without a doubt recommend him if I knew someone that need a personal injury attorney. Given the circumstances of our introduction I hope I never have to, BUT Bill Winters will definitely be my first call if I'm ever injured again!

Everyone on their staff is amazing! Chris and Sara won my case and helped me out with an accident that occurred a few months back. They made the entire process so easy! They called with case updates but not too often where it was constant phone calls. It was just enough to know what was going on the whole time without being bombarded. Thankful for Tayler on their staff who helped inform me on why Winters and Yonker was the best choice to go with!

Highly recommend. Bill Winters and his staff took time to answer my questions, and handled my case in a timely and professional manner. I almost didn't contact a lawyer over my "small" injury case because I feared it would be so difficult and stressful. But he got me the settlement that my insurance company owed me, and I would never have been able to do that on my own. And with less stress that I anticipated. I'm glad I called them.

Winters and Yonker is who you want to go to when you get in a car accident because they will take care of you and won’t let you get low balled on your settlement. I got in a car accident where my back and shoulder was injured and I was referred to a attorney named Trevor. I appreciate Trevor for handling my case and keeping me informed with all the information I needed.

One of the best law firms in Tampa. My family was involved in a serious car accident. We went to that other personal injury firm with the two M's they were trying to make us settle the case quickly and they we're not listening to us with the arrogant attitude that they were the experts and we were just ignorant. We promptly fired them and then hired Winters & yonker. Our settlement was 5 times higher than what the MM wanted to settle for.I would like to thank Winters and Yonkers entire staff for a wonderful experience. They were all very knowledgeable and walked us through the whole process. We really felt like they cared, unlike the other firm.

I’m giving Winters & Yonker a shout out. My mother fell in Winn Dixie afew months ago. Her first choice wasMorgan & Morgan; however, after theinterview with them they decided not to take the case. My perception was that it was not a big enough case for them. I knew that she deserved to be compensated for her injuries, and I had mad faith in Winters & Yonker from using them in the past. They not only took the case but settled it in record time. Thanks Winters and Yonker, and I like to send a special thank you to Christopher Smith, who was never to busy when I needed answers. I would recommend your law firm to anyone. I found you to be ethical, professional, and respectful to my family, but most of all you will fight for the little guy. Much love and respect. God bless you all and your families👏👏👏👏
