Every person has the responsibility to pay attention to his or her surroundings. In North Carolina we have "contributory negligence," which means that an individual who is even one percent at fault cannot successfully collect on a personal injury claim.
However, property owners also have a responsibility to keep their premises safe. If you were injured because a store employee created a hazard that you couldn't see, you may have a viable premises liability case.
