We're Here to Help After a Slip and Fall
Every state has property laws that regulate how premises must be configured, maintained, and managed. These laws ensure that visitors to the property stay safe. Florida's property laws remain the same whether the property is the home of a corporate business, a small business, or the private residence of an individual. The laws that cover accidents occurring on someone else's property are usually referred to as slip and fall incidents but can include any injury incurred while on such real estate. These types of injuries happen all too frequently and have the potential to cause severe injury.
A wet floor, broken concrete pathways, materials that block or fall on a visitor can all lead to unfortunate results. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that from 2000 to 2013, the death rate from slip and fall injuries in adults 65 and over came close to doubling. The National Floor Safety Institute found that 23 percent (over 8 million) of hospital emergency room visits are due to unintentional falls.
