These cases typically occur when businesses negligently maintain their property. It could be in the form of snow removal, construction, cleaning the floors, or other general maintenance. Even when you are careful, the business can be liable for its negligent behavior. With slip and fall (or trip and fall) cases, you must be able to determine what caused your fall.
