Slip, Trip, and Fall Injuries

If you’ve been injured in a slip-and-fall accident in Florida, you may be wondering what your rights are under Florida premises liability law.
First, you need to understand what a slip-and-fall accident is. It is simply what its name suggests: someone slips on a surface, and that slip results in a fall. Falls of this sort often cause injuries. If you have been injured in this type of accident, your first step is to get whatever medical treatment you need.

Florida Premises Liability Law: What You Need to Know

To win your slip-and-fall case, you must prove that the owner of the Florida premises has liability for the accident because he or she was negligent, or neglectful, in keeping the property safe. You also must prove that you suffered damages as a result of that neglect.
