Obligations To Take Reasonable Care

The problem with a slip-and-fall case can be determining who is liable. You have a duty to look out for yourself that extends to avoiding manifest defects or dangers. If a reasonable person would not step into an open manhole marked with warning signs, you cannot expect to recover damages for your broken bones if you do.

If the manhole is not signed, it is a different story. The owner of business premises — such as a grocery, a restaurant or a casino — invites people to come on to those premises to spend money shopping, eating, gambling or whatever the business may be. As an invitee, you are entitled to a safe place to conduct your business.

The property owner has an obligation to ensure that the property conforms to building code standards, as well as state guidelines about how buildings can be designed and traversed. The owner also has an obligation to provide proper security, to maintain the premises and not to ignore obvious hazards.
