Accidents, and slip & fall cases usually arise because the owner didn't realize a danger, or systems were not put into place to fix a potentially-dangerous situation. While the property owner may not have intended for someone to get hurt, an injury claim can be pursued so long as the owner acted negligently. The question to be asked is whether or not the the premises was reasonably safe for a visitor.
