Property Owners Have A Duty To Maintain Safety
Injuries and accidents on another party’s property that are caused by the property owner’s negligence are generally referred to as premises liability cases. Property owners have an obligation to maintain reasonably safe conditions and warn of any dangers on the premises. If they fail to do so, they may be held liable for injuries or deaths that result from their failure. At Shelly Law Offices, LLC, we are committed to securing justice for those injured because of a property owner’s failure to maintain safe conditions.
What Unsafe Conditions May Be The Property Owner’s Responsibility?
Any unsafe property condition of which the owner should have been aware and failed to correct could lead to a premises liability lawsuit. Some common dangerous conditions include:
- Uncleared snow or ice
- Broken railing
- Broken or uneven stairway
- Unstable deck
- Uneven or broken sidewalk
- Insufficient lighting
- An unsecured and unsupervised trampoline, pool or other feature that would be attractive to children
If you get hurt on someone else’s property, you might feel that it was your fault, whether you slipped or tripped and fell or were injured in another way. There are some unsafe conditions you can’t predict though, and they may in fact may be the fault of the property owner, not you. We can help you get the compensation you deserve to pay for medical expenses, lost wages and other costs associated with the accident.
