Commercial establishments must be safe for clients and customers.
The owner of a commercial property like a restaurant, hotel or store is responsible for making sure the area is safe for its customers. If the owner does not make sure the place is safe and as a result someone is injured, the owner is responsible for those injuries.
Store or property managers and employees are required to look for conditions that may be dangerous and to fix them as soon as possible to avoid injuries. For example, they must make sure that sidewalks, stairs and parking lots are free of ice, floors are clean and dry, shelves are safely stocked and that elevators and escalators are properly maintained.
