A person is injured while shopping, dining or conducting business on the premises of property owned or controlled by another. All too frequently, shoppers slip and fall where the business owner has allowed debris or water to accumulate or where a store employee has mopped the floor and not placed the appropriate wet floor signs. In other instances, a person may be walking down the stairs of a building when the steps collapse as a result of faulty design, construction, or maintenance.
In general, a property owner has a responsibility to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition and to exercise reasonable care for your safety, which includes a responsibility to warn of a dangerous conditions.
