Overview Of Florida’s Slip & Fall Laws

Slip and fall accidents usually happen because a property owner was negligent in maintaining the premises. In a premises liability case, you need to prove four elements to recover compensation for your losses as an injured victim.

  1. You must show that the property owner or occupier had a duty to keep the premises safe;
  2. You need to present evidence demonstrating that the property owner breached this duty through negligent acts or omissions;
  3. You are required to prove that your injuries were a direct result of the breach of duty; and,
  4. You must establish that you suffered losses because of your injuries.

In addition, you need to file your claim within the time restrictions designated by law. UnderFlorida’s statute of limitations, you have four years from the date of the accident to sue the property owner. After this period expires, you are forever barred from recovering compensation.
