Property owners are responsible by law for keeping their property reasonably safe, so that injuries do not occur as a result of dangerous conditions there. This extends to slippery floors, poorly designed factories, and inadequate security that leads to violent assaults and crime.
When you walk into a business, you expect to be safe. By opening a store or restaurant to the public and actively seeking to draw customers in, business owners take the responsibility upon themselves to keep their premises safe. But slippery floors, poor maintenance, or even an architect’s negligence in designing the building, can cause dangerous conditions.
