5 Common Misconceptions about Slip and Fall Cases in Florida

Posted on

When it comes to slip and fall cases in Florida, many misconceptions can mislead victims and potentially harm their claims. Here, we debunk some of the most common misconceptions about Florida’s slip and fall cases.

Misconception 1: A Fall Automatically Means Liability

Just because you slipped and fell on someone’s property doesn’t automatically mean they are liable. To have a valid claim, you must prove the property owner knew or should have known about the hazardous condition and failed to address it.

Misconception 2: You Can’t Claim If You Were Partly at Fault

Florida follows a comparative negligence system. Even if you were partly at fault, you could still recover damages. However, your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault.

Misconception 3: Minor Injuries Don’t Warrant a Claim

Even minor injuries can lead to substantial medical costs and other damages. Never underestimate your injuries or their potential impact on your life.

Misconception 4: Slip and Fall Claims Are Easy to Win

Slip and fall cases can be complex and challenging to prove. Hiring a Florida slip and fall attorney can help strengthen your claim and navigate the legal complexities.

 Misconception 5: You Have Plenty of Time to File a Claim

Florida’s statute of limitations for slip and fall cases is four years from the date of the accident. If you fail to file within this timeframe, you may lose your right to compensation.
