Slip and Fall

Slip and Fall

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention over one million Americans suffer a slip, trip and fall injury each year. An even worse statistic is that one third of adults 65 and older fall each year. Indeed, slip and fall accidents account for more injury deaths of older Americans than any other form of accident. The attorneys of Brush & Coyle know these facts and they take slip and fall cases seriously.

What is Florida law regarding slip and fall accidents?

Typically, Florida law requires owners of property to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition and to warn of a dangerous condition on their property that they knew or should have known was dangerous. This law applies to landowners, homeowners, grocery stores, shopping malls, parking lots and building owners.
