Whether you're strolling into KFC or browsing the aisles at Walmart, sustaining a serious and potentially life-altering injury is the last thing you expect. Yet, slip-and-fall injuries are quite common and can lead to medical bills, lost wages and a range of personal difficulties. Unfortunately for Florida residents, a recent statute has shifted the responsibility from business owners to injured parties in slip-and-fall cases.
A trip to the hardware store or grocery store is usually a fairly uneventful activity. One finds the items on one's list, pays at the register, and heads back home. However, one Florida man's trip to Walmart a few years ago ended up changing his life.
