What Happens if You Get Hurt on Private Property?
If you are attacked by a property owner or someone else on the property’s grounds, you should call the police first. A police officer will file an official report on the attack. This official report will be crucial evidence in proving a property owner’s negligence and that a criminal act was committed in your case.
It is also important to seek medical attention. Many people in Florida avoid going to the emergency room for fear of medical costs. You don’t need to worry, as an experienced lawyer at our firm can help you claim back these expenses at a later date. Additionally, the medical report produced is important to ensure you have a viable claim. You will be able to further prove the negligence of the person responsible or how a property owner’s negligence contributed towards you getting hurt.
We also advise that you talk pictures of the scene. Especially if you can prove that the property owner was unable to provide adequate security, there was no adequate lighting, the property lacked safety precautions, and/ or the property had not been properly maintained.
Can I Defend Myself if Attacked?
Under Florida Statute 776.012, you are justified in using non-deadly force in self-defense if you believe that such conduct is necessary to protect yourself against another’s use of unlawful force.
Simply, if you need to respond to an immediate threat, you are allowed to protect yourself without the fear of criminal charges against property owners. However, cases of self-defense are complex and can be messy.
If you are facing charges after defending yourself, you need to contact The Law Place straight away for a free consultation.
