Property and business owners have a duty to maintain their property and, to the extent necessary, warn people of hazardous conditions on the property. The duty usually exists both inside and outside a building located on the owner/business's property. A failure to do so can result in serious injury. Common causes of the conditions that lead to these falls are ice, standing water, loose railings, broken or uneven flooring, a hole in the floor, loose stairs/steps, optical illusions caused by a failure to differentiate changes in grading of the floor/steps, inadequate lighting, and trash or food on the floor.
