Slip and Fall
Did you slip and fall on someone else’s property? Did you suffer serious injury from this slip and fall accident? A slip & fall accident is defined as an accident that occurs when a person loses their footing, falls and is injured while on another persons property.
- The fall can be caused by the person tripping over something left in their path, or because the surface they are walking on is uneven.
- The fall can be caused due to a hole, or a dip in the path, or it can be caused by a liquid or other substance
- Any of the conditions above may show that the residence owner or business establishment is negligent
In 2010, Florida slip & fall injury law changed the burden of proof in slip & fall cases. This means that we must prove that the business knew about the hazard prior to your injury and neglected to fix the problem.
For example, it is no longer sufficient that there was a liquid substance was on the floor that you slipped on, we must prove that the business knew it was there and did nothing to remove the hazard.
