slip-and-fall.jpgCurrent Florida law allows individuals injured in slip & fall accidents to prove fault against business establishments through evidence of inadequate maintenance policies and procedures. Owens v. Publix Supermarkets, Inc., 802 So. 2d 315 (Fla. 2001) and Section 768.0710 Florida Statutes.

If so, businesses establishments will have one less reason to perform routine inspections and maintenance to keep their premises safe.
