  • Parking lots and parking garages – Uneven ground, potholes, poor lighting, broken or misplaced wheel-stops, unpainted or slick speed bumps
  • Stairways – Poor lighting, improper stair surface, no markings on steps or landings, or no warning signs.
  • Ramps – Wet, slick or slippery surfaces. Improper markings or design.
  • Exercise Rooms and Locker Rooms
  • Hotel Restaurants
  • Balconies or landings
  • Lobby
  • Pool or Spa
