Wal-Mart has over 290 locations just in Florida. Every year there are several cases brought against Florida Wal-Mart’s by customers who are injured while conducting business at the various locations. Wal-Mart has had to pay verdicts involving amounts in the several of thousands to several millions of dollars range due to their negligence in certain cases.
Wal-Mart, as does many businesses throughout the Florida and surrounding areas, invites the general public to come onto their properties lawfully for a multitude of reasons including browsing. Since Wal-Mart receives the benefit of their invitees on the property they have a legal duty to create and maintain a reasonably safe environment for all who enter the premises. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for liquid substances to be left on the floor, shelves to protrude into walkways or fall because they are defective, for merchandise on the top shelf to topple onto someone passing by or for other accidents to occur regularly.

A Florida attorney can assist you in assessing whether the business breached its duty (or broke their obligation) to maintain the premises in a safe enough condition for you to lawfully enter onto and conduct business without being injured.
