People who are injured because of hazardous conditions on someone else’s property may be able to recover damages for their injuries. Florida property owners have legal duties to people that they invite or allow into their homes or businesses. This includes, at a minimum, a duty to warn about dangers on the premises. The term “slip and fall” refers to injuries caused by hazards on someone’s property. It evokes the image of a person slipping on a wet floor and suffering injuries. It can also refer to almost any accident caused by a defect or hazard in the floor, on the ground, or on a set of steps or stairs.
Slip-and-fall accident claims are a type of personal injury claim. They require evidence that the person allegedly at fault owed a duty of care to the injured person, along with evidence that they did not fulfill this duty, and that the injuries were the result. The goal of a slip-and-fall claim is to recover compensation for the injured person. Property insurance or general liability insurance typically cover slip-and-fall claims, so knowledge of the insurance business is just as important as legal expertise.
