Slip and fall hazards due to ice machines can also be due to malfunctions. A restaurant could have proper signage to warn customers about the possibility of falling due to ice on the floor, but then also have the machine break. Such a broken machine could cause a large amount of ice to fall onto the floor or to have ice fly out of the bottom directly into a walking area. If this is the case, the company that made the ice machine and/or those that were responsible for maintaining it could be held responsible.
It is often shown that injuries spike around areas of the store that do not have proper signage up to notify customers about such a slip and trip hazard. There can also be a higher risk of injury around freezer sections from constant defrosting. In any case, the stores are expected to hold a high standard of quality for their visitors.
