I work for a large retail store in NY who usually rents space in malls, as is the case for my particular place of employment.
I slipped on water and fell outside the restroom at work. There are two sets of restrooms; male and female, situated adjacent to each other, and are for the use of the store's customers and employees.
Both sets of restrooms have had leaking toilets for more than a year. The seal around the base of the toilets are not for commercial use. My employer submitted a request for the mall to fix this problem long ago to no avail. The leak collected in the ladie's bathroom foyer where it had completely saturated the carpet near the exit/entrance. On exiting, I slipped and fell right outside the door on the tiled floor, injuring my back and shoulder.
