With an experienced local personal injury attorney in your corner, you could be more informed and more prepared for your journey toward recovery.

    Negligence Theory

    Plaintiffs who file a personal injury case based on negligence must prove four elements: duty, breach, causation, and harm. When it comes to slip and fall cases, plaintiffs are required to show that the defendant’s conduct was negligent and caused the condition that leads to the slip and fall.

    Duty of Care

    The first two elements are duty and breach in a negligence claim. All persons owe a duty to act as a reasonably prudent person would under the same circumstances. Property owners owe a duty to protect visitors from dangerous conditions by properly maintaining their property and warning visitors of potentially harmful conditions on the property that they know about. Though different standards of care are owed to different types of visitors, generally, property owners do not owe a duty of care to trespassers. A property owner defendant would be in breach of their duty if they failed to warn a visitor, or failed to maintain the property with reasonable care.

    Causation and Harm

    It is not enough to show that the defendant breached their duty of care. Slip and fall plaintiffs in Pasco County must also prove that the defendant’s negligent conduct was the actual and proximate cause of their injuries. Actual cause states that “but for” the defendant’s negligent conduct, they would not have been injured. Proximate cause is the legal cause of the injury and occurs when the defendant’s actions are reasonably related to the plaintiff’s injuries and is not superseded by another intervening cause.

    Fault Limitations on Slip and Fall Cases in Pasco County

    Florida follows the pure comparative fault rule, enacted under Florida Statutes §768.81. Under pure comparative fault, the plaintiff may recover damages even if they are 99 percent at fault, but their recovery is reduced by their percentage of fault. For example, if the court finds that the plaintiff was 20 percent at fault and the defendant as 80 percent at fault, the plaintiff would get 20 percent less of the overall damages that they would have been entitled to receive.
