The duty of care owed by an owner of land to those on the premises depends on the legal status of the person with regard to the property. A business invitee is a person who enters the premises of another for a purpose connected with the business or other interest of the landowner. This includes store customers and persons accompanying them.
A store owner has a duty to exercise reasonable and ordinary care in keeping the property reasonably safe for the benefit of its customers and persons accompanying them. The store owner also has a duty to warn of or make safe nonobvious dangerous conditions that are known, or should be known, by the store owner.
The National Retail Foundation reports that the most common in store injuries are related to slip and falls from liquids, faulty staircases, broken escalators, and merchandise falling from shelves.
