Apopka Slip & Fall Attorney
Understanding Property Owner Liability in Florida
Slipping and falling is not only embarrassing, it can also cause serious injury. Maybe you were visiting a favorite retail store when you suddenly lost your footing because a floor mat was sticking up across the threshold of the door. Perhaps you were taking the stairs in an office building when you slipped on a puddle and fell. Maybe you were at the grocery store when an unseen crack in the floor caused you to trip and fall, hard. In any such scenario—and many others—you may be entitled to financial compensation from the owner or manager of the property for failing to maintain safe premises.
