Liability in a Sanford Slip and Fall Case
At The Benenati Law Firm, we understand that accidents can happen to anyone at any time and can change lives forever.
Who is liable when a slip and fall happens? Generally speaking, under Florida law, a property owner (or anyone who controls the property, such as a renter) has a duty to make sure that there are no dangerous conditions on the property that can cause injury to another person. That property owner typically must either remedy the dangerous condition or warn anyone on the property about risks.
If you slip and fall as a result of a foreign substance at a business in Sanford, you must prove specifically that the business establishment had actual or constructive knowledge of the dangerous condition and should have taken steps to correct it. How can a plaintiff prove that the business had actual or constructive knowledge? A plaintiff must show one of the following:
- Dangerous condition existed for so long that the business owner, in exercising ordinary care, should have discovered it; or
- Dangerous condition occurred with regularity at the business, and therefore the condition was foreseeable.

Don't Just Take Our Word for It
“The Benenati law firm makes you believe that you are the single most important PERSON (not case) to them. Throughout the entire process, they maintained weekly contact with me, asking how I was doing or if I needed anything. I was provided with frequent updates as to how my case was progressing and was pleasantly surprised with the speed at which they were able to reach a substantial settlement. I've had the unfortunate experience of dealing with other well-known personal injury attorneys in Orlando who were unable to provide the level of expertise, care and service that Walter Benenati and his team can!”
“I would like to thank the Benenati Law Firm for helping to take the stress out of dealing with the insurance company and for everyone being very professional and always available to take my calls. The speed of the case being closed exceeded my expectations and any future needs I will definitely be contacting them.”
“My experience with the Benenati Law Firm in Orlando was a great experience. They helped right away after a heartbreaking experience at another law firm. THEY MADE MORE PROGRESS IN MY CASE IN TWO MONTHS THAN 2 YEARS WITH MY FORMER LAW FIRM. I am so grateful.”
