Upon entering the property of another person, we are usually under the impression that certain steps have been taken to ensure our safety. This remains true regardless of whether the property is a private residence, public store, restaurant or government building. Unfortunately, some property owners fail to take proper precautions, which could result in a serious injury to a visitor or patron of the property. Failing to clear the floor of spills and debris is the frequent culprit of a slip and fall accident.
