Resonable Man Standard
A standard that applies to business owners in order to help find who is at fault for slip and fall accidents within a business facility. The standard states that owners are not guarantors of every person’s safety that enter their establishment, but to be reasonably careful and aware of conditions that may be unsafe. If a business owner is aware of an unsafe condition in their store or on their property but do not take care of the problem or warn visitors, they are most commonly found liable for the visitor’s injuries. This standard is often upheld for victims of a slip and fall claim.
