Florida Slip & Fall Law

According to Florida law, specific elements must be proven for a property owner to be held liable for injuries in a slip and fall accident. When a fall occurs as a result of a transitory substance on the floor, actual or constructive knowledge of the dangerous condition must be proven for the premise owner to be held liable.

It is possible to prove constructive knowledge by showing:

  • The dangerous condition has been present for a long time that the owner of the property should have known about it as part of his/her due care.
  • The cause of the dangerous condition is a regular occurrence, making it foreseeable.

A statute of limitations refers to a timeframe for filing a lawsuit. When a lawsuit is not filed within that time period, you will forfeit your right to pursue legal action, even when the other party is responsible. For this reason, we encourage you to consult with our Pensacola slip and fall injuries lawyer as soon as possible to leave plenty of time to file your claim before the deadline.

Determining the Value of a Claim

The value of a slip and fall claim is determined by several factors. The nature and extent of the injuries can be determined by qualified doctors and medical testing, such as X-rays and MRI scans. It is essential that you seek treatment at the hospital, from your family doctor, chiropractor, orthopedic surgeon, or other specialists. In addition to medical expenses, you may be entitled to recover compensation for loss of wages, loss of a job, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and other out of pocket expenses.
