Slip & Fall

When a person falls down, slips, or trips due to the negligence of another individual or business, a slip and fall injury has occurred. A Slip and fall accident can happen while walking on a slippery floor containing spilled liquids or tripping on a faulty sidewalk. However, a fall that occurs in a valid slip and fall accident case must be due to the negligence of someone else.  According to Florida Premises Liability law, anyone who owns or is legally responsible for a residence, business or governmental property is legally accountable for any injuries that occur on said property due to negligence or faulty construction. (Faulty construction is a form of gross negligence.) Dylan M.
