An accident and injury can only be defined as a compensable slip and fall accident if the property owner was aware (or reasonably should have known) of a problem and did not resolve the problem within a timely manner. For example, imagine that you go to one of the car dealerships on Goodman Road. There is an oil spill from a previous car that they worked on in an area where customers are expected to walk, and the owners/employees looked over their duties to clean it up. When you go to get your car serviced and you slip on the spill that nobody cleaned up (but knew existed) and hit your head.
In this case, you would have a potential claim for a slip and fall injury against the property/business owner. Slip and fall accidents are most common due to ice, water, lose floorboards or carpets, cords, stairs, and debris. If the property owner knowingly does not fix these tiny but important problems, they can be responsible for the damages and injuries that you receive.
