ACTUAL AND CONSTRUCTIVE KNOWLEGE IN FLORIDA SPLIT AND FALL CASES -LAW OFFICE OF TROY & SCHWARTZ, LLC MIAMI 305-279-4749

If you have a slip and fall injury in Florida,  It’s important for you to understand the difference between actual and constructive knowledge and how it applies in a personal injury case.

UNDERSTANDING ACTUAL VS. CONSTRUCTIVE KNOWLEDGE

To successfully gain compensation in a slip and fall accident case , you must be able to prove that the defendant had actual or constructive knowledge of the problem that caused your injury.  If you can prove that the defendant had knowledge and did nothing to correct the problem, you may be able to win your case.

Constructive knowledge is when the hazard either occurred regularly and was foreseeable and preventable, or existed for long enough that the entity should have reasonably known about it.  Constructive knowledge can be proven through  circumstantial evidence.

A skilled Florida personal injury attorney will be able to tell you whether enough actual or constructive knowledge exists to form a successful slip and fall case.
