Florida Law Update: Slip-And-Fall

A 2010 law makes it more difficult, but certainly not impossible, for an injured victim to receive compensation after a slip-and-fall accident.  House Bill 689 requires that an injured plaintiff prove that the defendant either actually knew about the defective condition that caused the injury, or that the condition had been present long enough to […]
