In the United States, building codes are in place so that we can be sure that the structures we enter are safe for us to be inside of. Businesses, such as hotels, stores, and restaurants, also must adhere to certain codes to ensure they are providing a safe place both for their employees to work in and for their customers to visit. However, sometimes people are more interested in saving a few pennies than in offering their workers and customers a modicum of safety, and they may opt to willfully ignore safety issues in order to protect their bottom line. If you were hurt while on a premises like a hotel or restaurant and you want to speak with a premises liability lawyer, the expert legal staff at Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C. can help you become better informed about your legal rights as an injured party.
People who own or manage a premises made available for public use have a duty of care, meaning that they owe visitors to the premises the assurance that their premises is reasonably safe and free of harm. This means if a restaurant owner wants to save a buck or two by not purchasing “wet floor” signs and a customer slips and falls on a slick, fleshly mopped floor while walking from the restroom to their table or booth, the owner could be held liable for any injuries the customer sustained because of a breach in the duty of care. When an injury could have been prevented if not for the owner or manager’s negligence, the owner or manager can be held liable—or accountable—in civil court.
