In Florida, slip and fall injury laws are partly created by the legislature and the state courts through case laws. You must know the slip-and-fall laws that apply to your case. Every year 8 million individuals visit the ER because of a fall-related injury.
Florida’s Slip and Fall Injury Laws
Florida's slip and fall injury laws are described under Florida Revised Statutes 768.0755. You must prove that the business failed in remedying a dangerous condition to win a slip and fall lawsuit. You will also need to show the business had constructive or actual notice of the hazardous condition. If you suffered a slip and fall accident, you could legally recover economic and non-economic damages, including:
- Medical bills
- Loss of wages
- Pain and suffering
Furthermore, these laws are complex, and insurance companies make it harder for victims to get the compensation they deserve.
