Slip and fall accidents can cause terrible injuries

Have you ever been to the supermarket and as you are walking down the dairy aisle, you watch as a customer drops a gallon of milk? The liquid spills everywhere and covers the floor, creating a wet, slick surface that would be dangerous for anyone to walk on, let alone unsuspecting shoppers. This situation, as comical as it may seem to some, is indicative of the premises liability risks that commercial property owners face.

Such a spill could occur for any numbers of reasons. Yes, a customer may have dropped something on the ground; but it also could have occurred because of a leak in the ceiling, or a broken down refrigeration system, or an area that was improperly cleaned by an employee of the commercial establishment.

Commercial premises' must remain safe and acceptable, otherwise patrons are put at risk of injury. It is the responsibility of commercial property owners to quickly and appropriately address any dangers on their premises. Specific to spilled liquids: they need to put out warning signs of a wet floor and they need to clean and dry the are as quickly as they can.

Falling short of their duties means that patrons could slip and fall as a result of dangerous conditions. The victim in such a scenario would be well within his or her rights to pursue civil litigation against the commercial entity. If you are considering a slip and fall lawsuit in West Covina, California, then please consider the Law Offices of Mauro Fiore Jr.
