Fort Lauderdale and Miami Slip and Fall Attorney
Miami, Plantation & Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Business owners have an obligation to keep their properties safe from unsafe conditions. Sometimes the business owners do not live up to their obligations by failing to clean up liquids or spills that they know of, or should be aware of. And as a result of this failure, someone slips and falls at that business or property.
Often slip and fall accidents occur at:
- building lobbies
- someone else’s home
Thanks to the efforts of businesses and insurance companies, Florida has specific laws which protect property owners regarding slip and fall accidents. Florida Statute section 768.0755, provides that the owner or operator of property or business is legally responsible for another person’s injuries, if the injured person and their attorney can prove that the:
“business establishment had actual or constructive knowledge of the dangerous condition and should have taken action to remedy it.”
Proof of the property owner’s knowledge about the dangerous condition can be shown by either direct or circumstantial evidence, such as by the dirty condition liquid, or the age of the object, which caused you to slip and fall. If you are able to prove that the business knew of the dangerous condition, injured victims may be entitled to compensation for unpaid medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, scarring, disfigurement, disability and inability to lead a normal life.
