When someone slips and falls in a Walmart store in Florida, whether it is in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Naples or Ocala, Walmart generally has a duty to reasonably maintain their premises. When they breach that duty and it causes a customer to slip and fall and get hurt, a jury may find that Walmart caused the injury and may award a large amount of money to compensate the customer.
Florida’s slip and fall law may allow a victim of a slip and fall to recover money for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other out of pocket expenses.
