Negligence : Slip And Fall – Dangerous Condition – Knowledge

Where a plaintiff who was injured in a slip and fall accident provided deposition testimony from himself and a maintenance worker about a wet floor in the bathroom where the fall occurred as well as an affidavit from another employee who said he had never seen the bathroom in a clean condition, summary judgment for the defendant is reversed and remanded because the plaintiff met his burden to show a genuine issue of fact regarding the issue of defendant’s knowledge.

Judgment is reversed and remanded.
