You’re injured from a fall, don’t blame yourself. It’s not your fault and we’re here to help.
Experienced at Personal Injury Law, Jordan Maurer
Owners of grocery stores, restaurants, department stores, gas stations and other businesses have an obligation to maintain their property so as not to expose patrons to unsafe or dangerous conditions.
If their failure to maintain a safe premise leads to a slip and fall or any other type of falling injury, they should be held accountable.
While slip and falls are common accidents, not all are the result of property owner negligence.
For example, if the vegetable sprayers in a grocery store are over-spraying, slipping on the excess water could lead to an injury.
However, if the sprayers just started to malfunction and the store does not know about it and there has been no time for the store owner to address the problem, they may not be negligent.
On the other hand, if the problem with the sprayers has been ignored by the owner for a long enough period of time where they should have known about it and fixed it, or at least warned of the dangerous condition, then that is negligence.
