“Negligence” refers to a person or entity’s failure to take proper care. For example, a store owner may be negligent if they do not warn visitors of a large hole created by construction, by placing signs or warning tape around the hole, and then someone falls in. Or a hotel could be negligent if they do not put up warning signs during winter or rainy weather, when they know or should know that these conditions cause the lobby floor to become slippery, causing someone to fall.
Other examples of potential claims include accidents caused by:
- Damaged walkways
- Snow and ice
- Falling objects
- Poor security
- Unstable floors
