Millions of people every year are injured when they slip and fall. The people most
susceptible to falling are the elderly. According to the Journal of American geriatrics
society, over 50 billion dollars was spent on medical costs in 2015 from injuries related to falls. Florida is a shared fault state when it comes to slip and fall cases, meaning each party is liable for the percent that they’re deemed responsible for the fall. If a business is found not to have taken proper measures to ensure your safety, then they may be held accountable for comparative negligence. There are many factors involved when it comes to determining who is at fault during a slip and fall case so it’s important
to consult an attorney to see if you’re able to make a claim.
