I slipped and fell at a local coffee shop. Is this a premises liability case?

Additional Information:

I have 2 hairline fractures one in my hip and one in my shoulder. I slipped and fell on on some ice at the door of a Newton coffee shop.  It appeared as though the rain and/or melting snow coming out of the downspout froze overnight and caused an icy entrance and exit to the Newton coffee shop.  There was no “caution” sign and there was one witness.  Do I have a premises liability or personal injury case?


You have a premises liability action against the landowner and/or coffee shop because of the unnatural accumulation of ice from the buildings downspout. A landowner is  liable for negligence when an unnatural condition occurred as a result of a building or structure that channeled water, ice or snow or created a dangerous condition.
