Slip and fall incidents may seem like something harmless, but in fact, these cases can absolutely devastate the lives of people who are unfortunate enough to suffer them. Slip and falls can deal serious injuries -- even permanent injuries that change a person's life forever. Businesses, homeowners, landlords and other people in charge of maintaining a safe premises have this duty for a reason, and if they fail to uphold their duty, they could be held liable for any slip and falls on their premises.
Take a case from three years ago. A man was outside of a Panera Bread and trying to enter the restaurant when he slipped on a thin layer of ice outside of the Panera Bread location.
