Melbourne Premises Liability Attorneys
Accidents Because of Dangerous Property Conditions
Property owners have an obligation to provide safe conditions for visitors to their property. When they do not and injuries result, the owner may be liable for any injuries caused by the unsafe property conditions. At Nance Cacciatore, our lawyers help people who have been injured because of dangerous property conditions seek compensation for their medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering.
This area of the law, known as premises liability law, covers accidents such as slip and falls, dog bites, debris falling from buildings, and negligent security.

Our Attorneys Handle Slip & Falls, Dog Bites, Negligent Security, & Other Injuries Arising from Dangerous Premises
Our law firm, founded in 1963, boasts several attorneys certified by the Florida Bar in civil trial law. We are trial lawyers who prepare every case as if we will present the facts to a jury. Known for our trial advocacy, we are able to obtain good settlements because insurance companies know we are not afraid to try a case. This reputation, our credentials, and our experience combines to ensure the best result possible for our clients.
We have handled all types of premises liability cases for our clients. This area of the law, like many others, is constantly evolving. For example, liability for dog bites has changed from strict liability (with a “one bite” exemption) for the dog owner, to now including possible negligence on the part of the victim. We stay on top of changes such as these and develop cases that adapt to the differences in the law.
We handle challenging cases involving negligent security, poor maintenance of public facilities, and failure to warn about hazards. We have helped people with serious and catastrophic injuries sustained in slip and fall accidents, dog attacks, and collapsing building structures. We have filed wrongful death actions on behalf of grieving parents whose children drowned in unfenced swimming pools and dangerously designed retention ponds. In all these cases, we investigate the facts, determine the liability, and work hard to get needed compensation as quickly as possible. With years of trial experience, we always prepare as if a jury will be determining the outcome.
If you have suffered an injury because of dangerous or defective premises, contact our lawyers to learn if you have a case.
