The standard of reasonable care applies to homeowners and business establishments alike in the context of maintaining their property to protect people who are visiting the property. Property owners are not liable simply because someone falls and gets hurt on their property. Someone who is injured because of the condition of someone else’s property must establish that the person in possession of the property was negligent. It is important to obtain as much information as possible about the circumstances surrounding a fall to enable the attorney to evaluate whether or not a claim exists. There are special considerations surrounding the conditions of the floor, ice and snow, and/or a foreign substance on the floor. You should speak with an experienced attorney at the O’Brien & Wolf Law Firm who can help you evaluate your claim.
