Getting injured in a slip & fall accident can be extremely stressful. However, the lawyers at The Burton Firm can assist you in understanding your rights as a victim that was in a slip & fall accident. Typically, many businesses have liability insurance policies with insurance coverage for slip & fall accidents. However, our legal team will evaluate your case to determine the amount of insurance coverage available to you.

Generally speaking, pursuant to Florida law and procedure (See, Form 1.951, Florida Rules of Civil Procedure), to be successful on a claim for slip & fall, an injured party must be able to prove:

  1. Who owned and/or controlled the property where the slip & fall occurred;

  2. That the injured party was permitted to be at the property where the slip & fall occurred;

  4. The dangerous slip & fall hazard was known to the party that owned and/or controlled the property where the slip & fall occurred; and,

  5. The injured party suffered damages as a result of the slip & fall.


In order to prove damages, an injured party typically needs to show that the slip & fall resulted in injuries on or about their body and extremities, that they suffered pain from such injuries, that they incurred medical expenses in the treatment of their injuries, that they suffered a physical handicap, that they had their working ability impaired, that the injuries are either permanent or continuing in nature, and/or that they will suffer losses and impairment in the future. Our attorneys can advise you on the specifics of your damages claim.
