This includes making sure their storefront is clear of ice and snow, placing adequate warning signs at construction sites or on dangerous surfaces, fixing broken staircases, and maintaining general upkeep of the property.

Slips, trips and falls are some of the leading causes of catastrophic injury on the job and cause more worker deaths than any other set of circumstances.
The Workers’ Compensation Act was introduced in order to provide employees with support immediately following an injury. Previously, workers would have had to take their employer to court and could wait years before receiving any compensation. While the Workers’ Compensation Act ensures benefits for injured workers, it also precludes an injured employee from suing his or her employer.
However, if you are injured on the job because of an individual, or company, independent of your direct employer, you are able to file suit. This is often the case in the construction industry, where many workers are subcontractors.
The majority of slip and fall accidents do not result in severe or life-threatening injuries. But sometimes such injuries do occur. For instance, victims have suffered serious injuries from falling on wet floors. Additionally, some have sustained severe injuries after falling on floors covered with ice or grease.
If you suffered serious injuries from a slip and fall due to the negligence of an employee, you may have a valid claim of negligence against the company. You may be able to recover damages for your injuries.
