It is the property owner’s responsibility to ensure your safety while on their premises. Legally termed premises liability, so called slip & fall events injure millions of people. Most often, we think of accidents caused by wet floors or damaged handrails, but the unsafe conditions can exist in countless forms. Unlabeled hazards or construction areas, poor lighting, unsecure objects and countless other conditions can result in people getting hurt. Even the presence of security systems and/or personnel can play a role.
Maintaining a safe environment for visitors is a basic expectation. No one enters a business or other venue expecting to be injured, yet it happens all the time.
