Premises liability: Slipping on ice in Washington, D.C.

Imagine walking down the street. It's a little slick out, but you get to the store you wanted to go to without any problems. Suddenly, you slip and fall when you step into the store's entryway. There were no signs to indicate wet floors, but ice and water had pooled there. Now you've been left with a twisted ankle and head injury that has to be treated at the local hospital. What happens now? Who's going to pay for the injury you've suffered?

This case is an example of why premises liability. When you get hurt, the business should be willing to pay your medical bills and to get you any extra compensation you need to cover your expenses. If you are missing work, accruing medical bills or need additional recovery expenses, it's important that those are available to you. When you're hurt due to negligence, like failing to clean up slippery pools of water on the floor, then the law is on your side.

Slip-and-fall accidents are some of the most common that take place, especially during the winter months. It's important that businesses take the time to salt their walkways and to mop up melted ice and snow. Those that don't do so put their customers at risk willingly, and that's not something that should be allowed to let slide.
