Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents caused by dangerous property conditions are covered by an area of law known as premises liability. Under this law, the owners of stores, commercial businesses and other property in Florida are obligated to make their properties hazard-free and to keep up repairs. If you are injured because a property owner failed to do so, you may be entitled to damages.
