Slip & Fall

SLIP AND FALL INTRODUCTION:

Many people in Florida slip and fall on private property every year, some of whom are seriously injured and, in some cases, severely debilitated.

When property owners are at fault, a legal remedy may be pursued to recover medical bill expenses, lost wages and more.

WHO IS LEGALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR SLIP AND FALL INJURIES?

The property owner may be at fault for slip and falls on his or her property if:

  • The owner or an employee caused a spill or other dangerous surface condition
  • The owner knew about the dangerous condition, but did nothing to repair or remedy it
  • A “reasonable” person would have known about the danger and repaired or remedied it

PROVING A SLIP AND FALL CASE

In any slip and fall case, the person who slipped must prove that the property owner was at fault. Effective July 1, 2010, Florida Statute 768.0755, titled “Premises liability for transitory foreign substances in a business establishment,” states that: “If a person slips and falls on a transitory foreign substance in a business establishment, the injured person must prove that the business establishment had actual or constructive knowledge of the dangerous condition and should have taken action to remedy it….”
