Floridians are injured in slip and fall accidents nearly every day, with countless injuries resulting from the negligence and/or misconduct of someone else. Under Florida law, a homeowner and/or business owner must maintain his or her property in a “reasonably” safe condition for the general public. If the owner of a premises (or a person in possession or control of a premises) is aware (or should have been aware) that part or all of the property is unsafe, he or she may be liable for any injury that results from unsafe conditions.
Losing someone you love is devastating, but there is nothing more tragic than losing a loved one due to someone else’s negligence.

While nothing will bring back the one you’ve lost, you can take the steps necessary to hold the offending party accountable and achieve financial compensation to help ease your burden moving forward.
The basic principle of Florida premises liability laws is that homeowners and business owners have an obligation to ensure that their property is safe and sound for customers and/or guests.

You will speak with an attorney and work directly with an attorney throughout the entire process.
