A slip and fall can change your life, especially if you sustain injuries. If your injuries are serious enough, you may find yourself unable to work, enjoy your hobbies or function normally on a daily basis. Even if your injuries aren’t permanent, you may need physical therapy to recover, or you may suffer emotional damage that lasts long after your injuries have healed.
Florida Slip and Fall Laws
In the state of Florida, slip and fall cases are also termed “premises liability” cases. To win a premises liability case, you must be able to prove that the owner of the premises either (1) had knowledge of the hazard that caused the accident before it occurred or (2) created the hazard that caused the accident. Premises liability cases often involve accidental injuries. However, they may also involve other issues, such as injuries or damage resulting from poor security in areas with high incidences of criminal activity.
If you are involved in a slip and fall incident or other premises liability case, the owner of the premises may carry insurance that will cover some of your expenses, including your medical bills. However, some types of coverage may apply only if a court finds the property owner liable for expenses related to your injuries.
