Who Is At Fault?
If you are injured on someone else’s property, the property owner or business may be responsible to pay for your medical treatment, lost income, disabilities, and pain and suffering. Florida law is a “comparative fault” state. This means that if the person who falls is partially at fault for the fall, along with the property owner or business owner, then the jury or judge will decide the percentage of fault of each party and the injured party can collect. These percentages will be decided based upon the percentage of fault attributed to the property owner, business owner, or both.
Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents
Some examples of conditions where the property owner or business owner may be responsible for injuries from a fall are:
- Unevenly paved walkways
- Poor lighting
- Unmarked hazards
- Inadequate security
- Wet surfaces
- Broken handrails
- Defective stairs
- Spills that are not timely cleaned up
- Curbs, stairs, walks, or railings that do comply with building codes
