One of the obligations that a property owner, business owner or landlord has is to maintain a safe environment for any visitors, customers or guests. When you enter into a store, you expect to be able to look around, shop and conduct your business without having to worry about being injured due to a slippery floor, a loose railing, a malfunctioning escalator or an improperly secured display rack.
When you visit a friend at home you do not expect the home to be in such a state of disrepair that it is capable of causing serious injury or harm. Children and parents alike expect their local park to be maintained so as to help prevent any unnecessary accidents from taking place. If an individual slips & falls on a wet floor, or trips on an uneven walkway, or stumbles and falls while walking along a designated path, there are likely legal grounds to seek damages from the property's owners.
To prove liability in such cases it is necessary to show clear and concise evidence that the property owner, homeowner, business owner or other individual responsible for the upkeep of the property, knew of the potential danger and neglected to repair the problem or to adequately warn others about it. Providing you are able to establish that the property owner's careless or negligent actions were the direct cause of the injuries you sustained, you will have grounds to seek compensation for your injuries.
