In Florida, property owners have an obligation to maintain reasonably safe premises. This includes keeping walkways, stairs, and aisles clear of hazards that could cause someone to lose their footing and fall. Some examples are standing water, ice or snow, damaged flooring, large cracks, or even objects. Poor lighting or a lack of railings are other potential slip and fall hazards. When these hazards exist and a property owner does nothing to repair them or warn visitors of their presence, they may be held accountable—if someone is injured as a result.
In handling slip and fall accident cases in Jupiter, we carefully investigate the scene. We must work to prove that the situation was hazardous, that the owner knew (or should have reasonably known) about it, and that the owner did not take reasonable measures to fix the hazard or warn visitors. Using photographs, accident reconstruction, witness accounts, and more, we can work to build a clear and compelling case that offers our client the best opportunity for a positive result.
