If you were involved in a slip and fall or a trip and fall in Florida, a common defense by insurance companies is that the condition that caused your fall was open and obvious. All that means is that they're saying that you should have seen it and been able to avoid it. However, even if a condition is open and obvious, all it means is that the property owner didn't have to warn you of the condition. They still have a duty to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition, so you can still pursue your case.
