You were at an indoor swimming pool when it happened. You exited the pool and stepped onto the walkway. It was so slick that you lost your footing and fell back into the water. You struck your head, and the entire pool was shut down after you were pulled out and rushed to the hospital with a head wound.
Although Los Angeles is unlikely to get snow or similar slick weather conditions, the reality is that people can still suffer from slip-and-fall accidents related to water. Business owners and individuals may be liable for those slip-and-fall accidents if the conditions of their properties were not safe as a result of failing to address water-related hazards.
