When the weather is snowy, businesses must ensure that they aren’t allowing the areas just inside the interior doors to become too wet. This can be difficult because the bottoms of shoes and boots can grab onto snow, which can track it indoors. People coming in and going out could slip and fall on the wet conditions.
Because businesses have to do their part to protect their customers from obvious hazards, not doing anything just isn’t acceptable. In fact, this could be labeled as negligence and used as the basis of a personal injury claim based on premises liability.
If you were injured in a slip-and-fall accident because a business didn’t use mats, wet floor signs or blowers to keep the entryway dry, you will probably need medical care. This can be costly, especially if your injuries are significant.
