Slip and fall accidents can occur at any time and in any place and, by definition, you are unlikely to see the accident coming.

Frequently Asked Questions About Slip and Fall Accidents in Miramar, Florida

What if I was injured in a store, but the store owner did not actually own the property, and instead rented the premises from someone else?

This is a common fact pattern. Despite the complication, business owners who rent property are still required to keep their businesses safe by maintaining their property and placing warning signs when they have uncovered a danger. Even if the business owner who rented the space was not required to fix any problems under the terms of a lease agreement, that person continues to be responsible for placing adequate warnings to prevent slip and fall accidents until the actual property owner has taken the steps necessary to fix the problem.

I fell over a large pothole in a store parking lot and broke my hip, and the owner is saying that I should have been more careful. Can I pursue compensation?

Contributory negligence is an issue under Florida law, but the theory will not bar your right to recovery. If it is determined that you truly could have prevented the injury, your own negligence in failing to exercise reasonable caution could reduce your overall compensation award. However, if you reasonably could not have known that the pothole was there, we can build a strong case that you were not negligent. Further, if the property owner failed to warn customers and visitors that the pothole existed (for example, by placing warning cones or tape, or otherwise blocking off the area), that evidence can support a slip and fall accident claim for compensation.
