This case involves a slip and fall on the stairs. At a mass transit station in an urban area, the plaintiff was buying a monthly train ticket since he commuted to and from work daily. The stairs in the station all had treads to prevent slippage, but the steps leading up to the ticket booth were especially worn due to the high rate of foot traffic. It was a snowy day, and there was some slush from people’s footwear on the stairs, blocking the view of the worn treads as well as increasing the chance of slippage. While approaching the ticket booth, the plaintiff slipped and tore his meniscus. It was later revealed that the plaintiff also sustained a concussion. As a result, the plaintiff had to miss five months of work.
