When you enter a store or a restaurant, you have the right to assume that your safety is not in jeopardy. Property owners are legally responsible for ensuring that their premises are safe for anyone who enters. Unfortunately, not all property managers and owners take this responsibility seriously, and as a result, innocent people are hurt.
Slips and falls are common at stores and restaurants. These accidents often occur because of:
- Wet floors due to cleaning, spills, or leaks
- Ice or snow on sidewalks or in parking lots
- Unmarked or slippery stairs or staircases without proper railing
- Uneven tiles, carpet, or ground
- Debris, electrical cords, and blocked walkways
- Inadequate lighting
Business owners are responsible for the safety and security of customers on their properties. When the people in charge of keeping a property safe and maintained fail to do an adequate job, customers can get hurt. If you or a loved one has been injured in a slip and fall accident, you may be able to pursue legal action against the person or party responsible for your injuries and related losses.
