slip and fall injuries

When a person is inured through no fault of their own on another’s property, this is called premises liability. Most often, this is in the form of a slip and fall. These cases require the injured party to prove certain elements. If even one element is not proven, a court will dismiss the case.

Elements of a slip and fall case

First, an injured party must prove that the defendant owed the injured party what is called a duty of care. Second, the defendant breached that duty of care in some way. Third, it was the defendant’s breach that caused the injury.

In addition, Florida statute requires that the defendant know of the dangerous condition. Specifially, the defendant must have “actual or constructive knowledge of the dangerous condition and should have taken action to remedy it.”
