When you visit a store, a bank, a park, or any other place open to the public, the owner or entity responsible for that place has a duty to you to make sure they have kept the place reasonably safe for you.
Public places, including stores, banks, public parks, parking garages, parking lots, and similar kinds of places, must keep their floors or pavement free of ice, water, spills, or tripping hazards. Â They must also take reasonable measures to make sure that their premises are secure, especially when the place of business or public place is in a dangerous or high crime area. Â Without adequate security, people can be victimized or attacked, or even killed, due to a business’ irresponsible failure to put security measures in place to protect the public.
If you or someone you know has been injured due to a business’ or public place’s failure to keep their place free of hazards and safe for the public, you may have a claim for damages.
