Pennsylvania Premises Liability Accidents
If you were hurt while shopping at a supermarket or mall, who is responsible for your injuries? When accidents occur, premises liability law determines which parties will be held accountable.
In general, business owners must warn their customers of known hazards on their premises. So, if the business had just washed its floors, it must warn customers that the floor is wet and may be slippery. Additionally, businesses must take reasonable care to protect their customers. This issue often arises when criminals attack customers in parking garages or parking lots. These cases then focus on whether the business provided inadequate security to protect its patrons. Lastly, businesses must inspect and fix known and foreseeable hazards on their premises. So, some supermarkets will periodically inspect their floors to make sure that they are clear of slippery objects or substances.
