It is important to know that injured plaintiffs have a particular burden of proof in slip and fall cases that occurred as a result of a foreign substance (like a liquid spill) in a business establishment. Under Florida law (Fla. Stat. § 768.0755), a plaintiff either needs to show that the business had actual knowledge or constructive knowledge of the foreign substance and failed to remedy it.

A plaintiff can prove that a business had constructive knowledge either if the substance was there for such a long time that it should have been discovered, or if the situation was foreseeable to the business because it happened with regularity.
