Lee County reports many development plans are continuing in Lehigh Acres, including a growing number of commercial enterprises, such as retail stores, golf courses and restaurants.
When these businesses welcome members of the public, they owe customers the highest duty of care in making sure the site is in reasonably safe condition. Customers are owed a warning regarding any hazards about which the owner knows or should know. Failure to do so is a form of negligence called premises liability.
If you are injured in a slip-and-fall accident in Lehigh Acres, our attorneys will compare the facts of your case to the proof burden established in F.S. 768.0755. This statute requires plaintiffs (the injured parties) prove the defendants (party accused of negligence) had actual or constructive knowledge of a dangerous condition and should have acted to fix it. Constructive knowledge can be proven with circumstantial evidence tending to show the condition existed for a time during which the business owner should have known about it had ordinary care been exercised OR the condition occurred with regularity and thus was foreseeable.Lehigh Acres Car Accident Injuries
Lehigh Acres is patrolled by the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, which reports more than 5,020 car accidents and nearly 2,500 total injuries in a single year. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for young people, with most crashes caused by drivers who break the law or otherwise fail in their duty to use reasonable care.
