Is a store owner responsible if I get hurt in their store?

Yes, if your injury is the result of a dangerous condition about which the store owner knew or should have known. For example, if you fall in the restroom that has just been mopped by the cleaning staff, there is liability if there were no warning signs. On the other hand, if you slip in the aisle of a department store, it will be difficult to prove that the store knew or should have known about the small puddle of water or other beverage on the floor.
