Fault In A Slip & Fall Case
Most slip-and-fall injuries occur on the premises of a business. These businesses can be of all sizes and types including:
Local independently owned businesses
Restaurants such as Chili’s, Ruby Tuesday’s, Outback Steakhouse and McDonald’s
Department stores such as Target, WalMart and K-Mart
Sporting good stores
Home improvement stores such as Home Depot, Lowe’s and local hardware stores
Drug stores such as Walgreen’s, CVS and local pharmacies
Shopping malls, strip malls and outlet malls
Business owners have a duty to protect their invitees and customers and provide reasonably safe conditions. They have to protect them from known hazards and hazards that should be known. This is known as premise liability — the owner has liability if he/she doesn’t protect invitees and customers from unsafe conditions. Sometimes this does not happen, whether it is from spilled liquid on a floor, a loose brick on a stair, or loose hand rail, etc. The most common injury that results from this poor maintenance is a slip-and-fall injury.
