Tripped on an Uneven or Damaged Surface...Who's at Fault?

Some people are of the notion that if they're injured in a slip or trip and fall at a business, the business is automatically liable for their injuries. The fact of the matter is that in Florida the owner of property can be held liable if someone falls so long as the fall is due to the owner's negligence, i.e. the owner breaches his duty owed to persons who come on to the property. Liaibility is not automatic.

Ready or Not? Semper Paratus or Non Paratus?

The motto of the United States Coast Guard is "Semper Paratus" which is Latin for "always ready" or "always prepared."
