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.
