Florida Slip and Fall Law

Slip and Fall in a Store in Florida

Florida Statute section 768.0755 defines premises liability for transitory foreign substances in a business establishment.

If a person slips and falls on a transitory foreign substance in a business establishment, the injured person must prove that the business establishment had actual or constructive knowledge of the dangerous condition and should have taken action to remedy it. Constructive knowledge may be proven by circumstantial evidence showing that:

  1. The dangerous condition existed for such a length of time that, in the exercise of ordinary care, the business establishment should have known of the condition; or
  2. The condition occurred with regularity and was therefore foreseeable.

This section does not affect any common-law duty of care owed by a person or entity in possession or control of a business premises.
