Who Can Be Held Accountable For a Fall?
Florida law creates an obligation for landowners to keep their premises in a safe condition and warn of any dangerous condition on the property. This duty also extends to any person or business possessing or controlling the property. For example, if a business leases a building from the landowner, both the landowner and the business that is using the building could be responsible for keeping the premises safe.
What Is a Dangerous Condition?
A dangerous condition can be a wide variety of things. As discussed above, it could be a substance that had been spilled and not cleaned up, a pothole, uneven flooring, or obstructions in the walk way. Additionally, if businesses fail to follow local ordinances or safety codes that cause injury that can also be considered a dangerous condition. If you suffer injuries from a fall, it is important to call a personal injury attorney right away and discuss the specific facts of your case.
