From wet surfaces to rolled-up mats, and who is responsible

How many times have you been out and about and had one of those moments where you almost fell?  I am sure you can even remember yourself saying things at the time like, "that was a close one" or "that darn mat." What if you did fall, who is responsible then? Wet surfaces, broken pavement and rolled-up mats do have one thing in common; they are hidden dangers that retail owners and operators are responsible for. It falls to them to ensure they are safe to walk on for every person entering their place of business.

If we hear of someone falling, and that fall resulting in serious injury, we often presume that they must have fallen from something high. However, in most cases, they didn't fall off anything, rather they fell on a solid surface, or what they thought would be a safe and secure surface to walk on.

When we go to the shopping mall, grocery store or other retail store, dangerous property conditions are not usually at the forefront of our minds. We tend to automatically assume that these businesses will be free of hazardous conditions because property owners are supposed to keep surfaces dry, pavement repaired and mats secure so we don't injure ourselves.

If, after learning more about premises liability, you feel you are entitled to compensation for an injury that occurred in a public place as a result of business or property owner negligence such as wet surfaces, or if you would like to know more about your rights as a consumer, the best course of action is to speak with an attorney who is experienced in personal injury compensation.
