According to Florida case law as of the date of this article, an owner must use reasonable care in maintaining the premises in a reasonably safe condition, and, the owner must warn the invitee of concealed perils which are or should be known to the owner, and which are unknown to the invitee and cannot be discovered by the invitee through the exercise of due care.
