Association Not Liable for Slip-and-Fall Injury
Facts: A member's housecleaner filed a personal injury lawsuit against the association. While cleaning one of the condominium units, the housecleaner slipped and fell on a wet tiled exterior walkway. The walkway is a common area that leads from the member's condominium down a stairway to the door of his garage. The lawsuit alleged that the association knew about the danger created by the wet tiles on the walkway but failed to make repairs. The trial court granted a judgment without a trial in the association's favor. The housekeeper appealed.
