Florida Law On Slip and Fall Cases and Premises Liability
Premises liability cases, including slip and fall accidents, are based upon the legal theory of negligence. To succeed on a claim for compensation, you need to show that the property owner or operator breached a legal duty of care. In the context of premises liability, negligent acts may include:
- Not repairing a dangerous condition on the premises after receiving notice of the hazard;
- Failure to fix a hazardous condition when the owner or operator had constructive notice through surrounding circumstances;
- Neglecting to inspect the premises to discover dangerous conditions that should be remedied;
- Failure to place a sign, barricade, or other communication warning guests and others of a hazard.

Compensation For Common Slip and Fall Injuries
There are many types of bodily harm that fall under the umbrella of “slip and fall” claims, including:
- Broken bones from debris or slippery surfaces;
- Sprains, strains, and torn ligaments;
- Hip injuries and fractures;
- Burns from chemicals or loose wiring;
- Head injuries, traumatic brain injury (TBI), or concussions; and,
- Many other types of injuries.
Victims suffer physically, emotionally, and financially as a result of their injuries. Premises liability laws allow you to recover compensation for all losses that stem from a slip and fall accident, such as:
- Medical bills to treat your injuries, including the costs of surgery, emergency care, pain medications, crutches, a wheelchair, physical therapy, and many other expenses you may incur;
- Lost wages, for the time you miss work because of your injuries;
- Pain and suffering;
- Scarring and disfigurement; and,
- Other losses that vary based upon your specific circumstances.
You should note that there may be limitations on your claim. For one, you must comply with the Florida statute of limitations. The law gives you four years to file a lawsuit in a personal injury case, including slip and fall accidents. Plus, your compensation may be limited by your own conduct under the state rule on comparative negligence. If your actions contributed to the incident, your monetary award is reduced by the percentage of fault attributable to you. For instance, you may be partially to blame if you failed to heed a warning sign or were engaging in risky conduct on the premises.
