Property owners have an obligation to take reasonable care to maintain their property to ensure it is safe for lawful visitors. They are required to repair known hazards or to warn visitors of hazardous conditions that cannot be remedied. By failing to do so, a property owner may be liable to visitors for injuries they sustained while on the owner’s property. If you were injured while on the property of another, you may be entitled to file a premises liability claim or lawsuit. Claims often arise from slip and fall accidents, construction accidents, inadequate lighting, inadequate security, attacks from dogs or other animals kept on the premises, and a myriad of other causes.
Dangerous conditions can be created by negligent employees or tenants or by the failure of owners, businesses, or property managers to adequately maintain property for which they are responsible. A visitor or guest may be injured as a result of a dangerous condition existing on the property. If you were injured on someone else’s property, you may be able to recover money for medical bills, lost earnings, future medical treatment, emotional trauma, and possibly more.
