Did The Owner Create The Danger Or Know About The Defect?
A slip-and-fall on slippery food or spilled liquid is a difficult case to win. The owners can claim they did not have knowledge of the danger or a reasonable opportunity to address it before the accident. The best cases involve injuries in which a person tripped or fell because of a code violation or some other longstanding defect, or a safety hazard created by the actions of the owner or employees. For example:
- Broken handrails and broken steps
- Stair treads and risers not to code
- Dimly lit stairwells and entrances
- Unexpected step-ups/drop-offs
- Heaved sidewalks and broken curbs
- Waxed or mopped floors without warning signs
- Electrical cords and other tripping hazards
- Leaking coolers and hoses
- Unmarked construction holes
