Property owners and managers have a legal responsibility to maintain their businesses, stores, grounds, and homes safely for customers, patrons, or visitors. Additionally, the property owner or management company must properly warn visitors if there are known conditions and hazards to be avoided. When property owners fail to do so and you suffer harm as a result, you have the right to receive recovery for your injuries. Steve and Al have decades of experience representing Floridians who have been injured on someone's property due to the owner's negligence. Steve and Al know Florida’s complicated premises liability laws and will hold the responsible property owner financially accountable for your damages.


Al and Steve will prove that the property owner was negligent by specifically showing how the owner, and/or their management and maintenance agents, failed to use reasonable care maintaining the property safely for visitors. Visitors are generally classified as “invitees and licensees”, and have a legal right to be on someone else's property. Visitors legally include customers, shoppers, business patrons, residential guests, and many others injured by hazards arising from the property. Al and Steve will show that the landowner knew, or should have known, of the hazardous condition, and failed to correct or warn of the unsafe situation.


Failure to protect visitors from violent acts or to provide security can create landowner liability. When you visit a store, mall, apartment complex, or other business environments, you have the right to expect reasonable security precautions have been taken to protect you and your family.

If you were attacked, beaten, shot, robbed, or sexually assaulted, and the property is in a high crime area or otherwise has a history of violent activity, Steve and Al know exactly how to prove the owner or management of the property is legal responsible for your injuries and losses.

For any injuries suffered from attacks on someone else's premises, the property owner can be held liable and Al and Steve will work to get you the full, fair compensation you deserve for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other recoverable damages. You shouldn’t be a victim twice.


Slipping and tripping accidents are the most common type of premises liability cases. They can be caused by a wide range of hazardous conditions, such as wet floors, cracked pavement, uneven steps, slick surfaces, holes, and improper stairs. Falls from these hazards can cause a wide range of injuries and losses. If you have slipped and fallen on someone's premises, Al and Steve will hold the property owner accountable for your injuries. Florida law is very favorable to landowners, so it is important to have the experience of Meyers & Stanley on your side.

Obviously, premises liability cases can also be brought for many other types of property related accidents, in addition to inadequate security and falls, including but not limited to:

  • Unsafe structures/dwellings
  • Fires
  • Explosions
  • Building collapses
  • Falling objects
  • Construction zone conditions
  • Elevator or escalator failures
  • Electrocution
  • Exposure to toxic substances
  • Dog bites

To succeed in your case, we undertake a full investigation of the circumstances behind your incident or accident. These preparations and investigations include:

  • Consulting medical professionals to verify the extent of your injuries and the cost of recovery from these injuries.
  • Photographing the scene of your accident and preserving other evidence of defect or negligence.
  • Researching whether anyone else has been attacked or injured in the same location, or if anyone has previously complained about the property’s dangerous condition.

Al and Steve have helped clients file lawsuits against property owners, landlords, tenants, security guards, security companies, management companies, and other at-fault parties in all types of premises liability claims. You can rely upon on Steve and Al to advocate strong legal positions to achieve the biggest recovery possible for you and your family.

    Mr. Stanley is a great lawyer. He is very knowledgeable about social security disability claims. It was a long rode but at the end he helped me win my Social Security case. If I ever need him in the future I would defiantly hire him again. ...
