Generally, customers who are injured by slips and trips at stores or malls, can recover if they can demonstrate negligence on the part of the person or corporations who maintained the premises. Negligence can be demonstrated by proving that the someone at the store or mall knew or should have known about a dangerous condition that caused a customer to fall. Examples of this are found in leaky food refrigerators, defective stairs, holes in the floor, and permitting liquids or debris to remain on the floor for too long a period of time without cleaning it up. If such negligence can be demonstrated, the customer may be able to recover for their injuries.
