When surfaces are improperly maintained, otherwise normal or safe surfaces can be deadly. What was once easy to navigate because of sufficient grit, grain or traction can become extremely slippery. While ice accumulation is a frequent problem, the combination of the wrong types of paints, water or other foreign substances are disasters lying in wait.
If you or someone close to you has been injured due to a poorly maintained premise, it is important to understand your rights should you choose to pursue compensation.
