When might a property owner face liability for a fall outdoors?

Florida residents may already understand that a slip-and-fall lawsuit could happen if a person falls down and is injured inside a building, such as a store, hotel or restaurant. However, what they may not know is that slip-and-fall accidents can occur outdoors as well. These accidents could also lead to a premises liability lawsuit, if appropriate.

Premises liability and a property owner's duty to trespassers

People may have a "no trespassing" sign posted on the entrance to their property, but this does not always keep trespassers away. And, unfortunately, sometimes a person is injured or killed while trespassing on another's property. When this happens, it is important to understand how premises liability applies to trespassers under Florida law.

Can you hold a store owner liable for slip-and-fall accidents?

Perhaps you were just doing your weekly grocery shopping when you slip on a spill on the floor in the cereal aisle and break your leg. Or perhaps you were dining at your favorite restaurant with your family when you trip over a torn piece of carpet and hit your head. In either case, you are left with injuries that you may feel were certainly not your fault.
