Slip and fall accidents can happen just about anywhere. These types of accidents are often the result of:

  • Negligently maintained floors
  • Damaged or Cracked Walkways
  • Leaks/wet Floors
  • Dangerous Construction Sites
  • Negligently Maintained or Guarded Pools
  • Unsafe conditions at markets, office buildings, and retail stores

The key to Florida slip and fall accidents is proving negligence (carelessness) on the part of the property owner or the management in charge of the premises. Owners are responsible in Florida if the condition of the property was dangerous, the owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition, and the owner had a reasonable opportunity to correct or warn of the condition before an injury occurred.

Slip and fall injuries often result from slippery conditions caused by water, paint, oil or other lubricants on a walking surface. Slip and fall Injuries may also be caused by hidden hazards such as poor lighting, uneven walkways, or missing handrails.
