PREMISE LIABILITY LAW WITH SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENTS
Generally speaking, business owners have to maintain reasonably safe premises for the guests that come onto their properties. When a business fails to maintain a reasonably safe environment and a person is injured in an accident, the business owner may be liable for that injury. Business owners should be weary of potential hazards that may injure their guests and work to eliminate them. A guest on a business owner’s premises may be able to seek compensation for their injuries if they are involved in an accident caused by a dangerous condition on the property. Poor lighting in walkways, wet floors, cracked floors, unguarded balconies, loose electrical wiring all are all hazards that can injure guests.
