Miami Slip & Fall Lawyer
Slip and fall accidents occur when a person loses his or her footing, falls, and is injured on the property of another. These types of accidents fall under Florida’s premises liability law, enabling the injured party to file a legal claim against a landowner or business if the property is not kept in a reasonably safe condition.
In Florida slip and fall cases, the injured person carries the burden to prove three things:
- A duty of care was owed to the injured person;
- Reasonable care was not exercised in maintaining the property; and
- Due to the failure to use reasonable care, a person was injured.

An injured party in a slip and fall accident must bring a legal claim against the property owner or business within four (4) years from the date of the incident, according to Florida’s statute of limitations. If the injured person timely files, he or she may be entitled to recover medical costs, lost wages, permanent disability, emotional distress, and more if the court determines the property owner or business was liable for the relative injuries.
