Q
I slipped on a wet floor in a market. Can I recover money from the market for my injuries?

A

Generally, in "slip and fall" cases like this, the store is responsible if the store employees knew or should have known about the danger and did not take steps to fix it.  If the floor became wet just before the accident and store employees had no time to clean it or post adequate warning signs, the store is likely not responsible.  But if the floor was wet for a while and store employees knew or should have known about it but did not do anything, you have a good case.
