Commercial Properties Slip and Fall

Anyone who is a consumer/customer of a professional or commercial business can be injured on that property. Over the last three decades, we have seen cases from injury victims who have sat on a defective bench, chair, or other waiting area that indeed collapsed in one way or the other. Often, a foreign substance on the floor, or a defective like a welcome mat that was not secured to the floor on a rainy day, can become the cause of an injury. Further, the cleaning of floors that could create a wet/slippery hazard should not be done when active foot traffic is present during business hours. Even so, cones or signs or even cordoning off areas is the expected norm although we often see these steps never taken leading to disastrous painful injuries.
