Can I receive compensation from a Florida store where I was injured in a trip and fall accident?

There’s a common misperception that just because you were injured on someone else’s property or in a store, you’re entitled to compensation. What you have to establish is that the store owner was legally responsible for causing the accident. For example, if you simply tripped over your own two feet, then you’re not entitled to compensation from the store owner. However, if the store did something like leave a bunch of boxes where they shouldn’t be and created a trip hazard and that negligence caused you to suffer injury, then yes, you would have a cause of action against the store owner.
