If I slip in a puddle of liquid in a store, or other location, would that be considered a premises liability claim?

It may be considered to be a premises liability claim. However, the plaintiff must show that the occupier of the property or the owner knew or should have known that the liquid was on the floor before the accident. How successful a premises liability claim is usually relates to the facts of the case.

For instance, if the store owner was told that there was a broken bottle of ketchup in an aisle and the owner did nothing about it and a shopper slips and falls, it may be possible to make a case that the owner knew about the hazard and did nothing.
