Hurt on Another’s Property?
An Injury Lawyer Can Protect Your Rights
Property Owners Must Take Basic Safety Precautions
When an injury occurs on the property of another, the owner of the property may be at fault. Liability can be established if it is determined that the property owner was negligent for failing to maintain his property or give proper warning of dangerous conditions. This includes slip and fall injuries.
A property owned by a business must provide adequate warning of hazardous conditions to anyone they invite onto their property. Unsafe conditions on property such as retail stores, amusement parks, hotels, apartment complexes or parking garages can cause serious and life-long injuries. Failure on the part of the property owner to maintain safe conditions in a public space, notify any potential guests of hazardous conditions and provide adequate security measures could constitute negligence.
Who is Responsible for Slip and Fall Injuries?
A slip and fall injury is a term that is applied when someone slips or trips as a result of a dangerous condition on someone else’s property. Dangerous conditions that can result in serious slip and fall injuries are:
- Slippery substances like water or ice
- Changes in flooring
- Poor lighting
- An unseen hole or gap
Although slips and falls may seem like very minor injuries, the truth is that they can cause an immense amount of harm. Typical slip and fall personal injuries can include:
- Broken bones
- Back injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Lacerations (deep cuts)
