Do I have a Case?

Here are some common scenarios in which negligence could cause an accident:
ñ Snow and ice are not properly removed from sidewalks, parking lots and roadways
ñ Stairways are left slippery, broken, poorly lit, or without proper railings.
ñ Roads and sidewalks are in disrepair
ñ Worn-out or unmaintained carpets and rugs cause unexpected trips
ñ Stores and markets fail to clean up spills, cleaning products, or other debris
