But the experience can sour quickly when a customer is injured due to the business’s carelessness or intentional disregard of its duties.

Businesses which have allowed such conditions to exist may be held liable for these accidents if the owner “reasonably” should have known of the danger and he or she failed to take reasonable steps to correct it.
