Business and property owners are required by law to maintain reasonably safe premises; when they negligently fail to do so, the owner is legally responsible. Accordingly, establishments such as supermarkets, bars and restaurants, swimming pools, stadiums, shopping malls, and hotels are all required by law to maintain safe property conditions. Premises liability claims that can arise include:
