Duty to secure and repair property damaged by extreme weather
South Florida is constantly bombarded with hurricanes, tropical storms, high winds, heavy rains and blazing heat. These extreme weather conditions can hasten the disintegration of property and contribute to trip, slip and fall accidents. Property owners have a duty to adequately secure their property during a hurricane and make repairs to damaged property that present a danger. If unable to repair slip and fall hazards, the property owner must provide clear warning of the unsafe conditions.
