Every customer has been in a business and seen the wet floor sign depicting a person slipping and falling. These signs put individuals on notice of the hazard, preventing customers from sustaining serious injuries. Yet, all too often, a wet floor goes unnoticed and an accident occurs. A recently filed lawsuit exemplifies a typical premises liability case.
The lawsuit was filed against Country Inn & Suites after a man entered the side entrance of one of the company’s hotels, slipped on a wet floor, and fell.

Furthermore, the man claims the property owner should have been aware of the dangerous property condition and remedied the situation before the accident occurred.
