This is a difficult question to answer without knowing more about your situation. In general, each personal injury claim will need to have the following elements: negligence or carelessness on the part of another person or organization; a connection between the negligence and some harm suffered by you; and damages. In many instances, this analysis is easy. Other times, it is more difficult. Sometimes there is clearly negligence, but very little harm. Sometimes there is great harm, but a questionable connection between a negligent act and the harm.
One common misconception in premises injuries is that the property owner is responsible for all injuries that occur on the property. THIS IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE IN FLORIDA. In order to recover damages against a property owner, you must prove that the property owner created the dangerous condition, or allowed a dangerous condition to exist after it knew or should have known of the danger.
