A premises liability case refers to injuries sustained while on the property that is owned by another due to conditions caused by the negligence and carelessness of the property owner or an employee or contractor. These type of accident are oftentimes referred to as “slip and fall” or “trip and fall” accidents. The most common causes of slip and fall or trip and fall accidents are when these dangerous conditions are hidden or not easily detectable, such as wet or slick floors, uneven ground surfaces, walkways that are not slip resistant, and objects that impeded entrance and exit ways. In addition, oftentimes stairways are uneven, overly narrow, too steep, or do not have sufficient lighting. Injuries from falling on these surfaces or down a flight of stair can lead to serious injuries, such as broken bones, torn ligaments in shoulders, elbows, knees, and ankles, along with injuries to the spine and the brain.
Can I always recover for my slip and fall injury when it happens on someone else’s property?
Premises liability cases can very often be complex as the negligent property owner will almost always attempt to place blame on the injured victim, no matter how egregious his or her conduct. It is important to note that Florida law imposes the responsibility of a property owner to maintain his or her property in a reasonably safe condition to all those that rightfully enter the property. When the conduct of a property owner falls below this standard, and as a result, someone sustains an injury while on the property, the owner may be responsible to pay financial compensation to the injured party. However, Florida law places the burden of proof on the injured party that the fall was caused by a dangerous condition about which the property owner either knew or should have known.
