St. Petersburg accidents or injuries can occur anywhere, and at any time: at a shopping mall, grocery store, parking lot, office building, hotel, theme park, resort, house, apartment, cruise ship, or retail store.
But, when a property owner or building manager has been negligent in maintaining the property or has not fixed a known problem that contributes to an accident, they may be liable for injuries occurring on their property. Premises liability claims are a type of personal injury claim where the injury and accident occur on another person’s property.
