San Diego and North County San Diego business owners and managers owe a duty to keep their areas safe for their customers and workers. This means keeping sidewalks and steps in a safe condition, cleaning up debris and spills, and using signage to warn about wet or hazardous surfaces.
If these precautions are ignored, people can get hurt. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, private industry employers reported 3.0 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses in 2013. More than half of those were more serious cases that resulted in days away from work, job transfer, or restriction.
Unfortunately, many of those injuries happen in environments that should have been kept safe. Those responsible for maintaining the area were negligent and failed to meet their duty.
