Generally, in Florida, the owners or possessors of property can be held liable for injuries on their property if they created a safety hazard or failed to address dangerous conditions of which they had, or should have had, knowledge.
Your slip and fall injury may have been accidental, but it happened because a store employee or company violated a basic customer safety rule. Or your injuries or trauma from an assault happened because the property owner failed to provide adequate security.
