Florida is a strict liability state. This means that in certain circumstances a person will be held liable for any injuries or deaths, regardless of whether they were negligent or reckless. In other words, the law views certain activities as so inherently dangerous that fault simply does not matter. It is therefore of no consequence that every possible safety precaution was taken; you will still be found at fault.
Types of Claims We Handle
At the South Florida law firm of Heller & Heller, P.A., we help people throughout Broward and neighboring counties pursue strict liability claims against negligent homeowners, landowners, companies and local governments for injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one.
Our Coral Springs personal injury lawyers handle a wide array of strict liability claims, including:
- Premises liability — dog bites and other animal attacks
- Attractive nuisance — construction sites, equipment, swimming pools and parks
- Product liability — defective manufacturing, design or marketing
- Injuries to children — sports fields, recreation centers, school playgrounds or school bus accidents
Who Can Be Held Liable?
Private or public property owners have an obligation to protect the safety of guests, while product manufacturers have an obligation to protect the safety of consumers. Failure to do so can result in a finding of strict liability.
