But a business that opens its doors to people to make a profit has a duty to protect those people. Failure to do so constitutes an element of negligence and may form a strong base for a negligence lawsuit.

What Will A St. Petersburg Slip And Fall Lawyer Do?
What Is The Business Owner’s Duty To Me?
Florida law requires a property or business owner to keep their properties safe for visitors, guests, and customers and to give warnings about any dangerous or hazardous condition. The owner of a properties’ duty depends to you depends on whether you are an invitee, a licensee, or a trespasser.
You Are An Invitee
If you came to the business to conduct commerce then you are an invitee and are owed the highest level of care. Think the grocery store, liquor store, restaurant, or other “shop” that sells goods. If you are an invitee, the business has a duty to inspect the premises and fix any dangerous conditions and to warn you to be careful until they are fixed.
You Are A Licensee
If you enter a location with the permission of the property owner but are not there to conduct business you are a licensee. Think going over to your friend’s house or going to a baseball game.
If you are a licensee the landowner has a duty to fix any potential dangers or warn the licensee. The landowner has less of a duty to you to protect you if you are a licensee than if you were an invitee.
You Are A Trespasser
If you enter someone else’s land without permission, you are trespassing. Trespassers have the lowest amount of protection from a landowner. however if the landowner has created an artificial condition that is hidden or otherwise not noticeable to a reasonable person, the property owner may be liable to the trespasser.
