Is the warning of a store employee about a spill important in a Florida slip and fall case that resulted in an accident?
In the state of Florida when you have a slip and fall case that results in an accident, and you have a store employee or manager warning of some sort of dangerous condition or slippery substance that’s on the floor, the evidence of that warning is extremely important. You have to understand that in the state of Florida, slip and fall cases are very hotly disputed by the Defense attorneys, whether it’s insurance companies or lawyers representing the Defendants.
In a fight most of their fight is on liability or fault; who was at fault for the accident? Was it the person walking who was ultimately injured? Or was it the store owners or the store for presenting this person with a dangerous condition?
If there is evidence that a store employee or manager warned of the condition prior to this person falling, that is extremely important evidence regarding liability or fault to show that the store may not have been at all responsible and in fact the person walking who was ultimately injured was responsible. It’s extremely important evidence.
