Re: What are the present Tort Claims Laws in Fl. State?

Generally, a claimant is entitled to recover medical expenses and costs as a result of another party's negligence.

In order to prove negligence, you must show that your injury was the proximate result of another party's act or failure to act and it was foreseeable that your injury would occur by that party's act or failure to act.

In order to recover more than your medical costs, you must show that your injury was significant and permanent. A significant or permanent injury is one that has resulted either in scarring or a disability as determined by a medical doctor.

That is a very broad question. There are numerous laws in place depending on the facts of your case. Basically if you fell on someone else's premises due to a dangerous condition that existed you are able to recover for your injuries. If you want to discuss the facts in detail feel free to contact me.
