Promoting Safety In Premises Liability Claims
Property owners and managers have a responsibility to maintain the premises safe for those who use the property. When people suffer injury on someone else’s property, they often do not fully understand that they may be able to hold the property owner accountable. If a landlord, property management company, homeowner or business knows (or should know) of a dangerous condition on the premises, it has a responsibility to fix the problem or warn others of the hazard to prevent injury.
Types Of Hazards In Premises Liability Claims
When most people think about premises liability issues, they likely think about slip-and-fall-injuries. There are a number of hazards beyond slippery or faulty surfaces that can cause or contribute to serious personal injury.
For instance, failing to maintain smoke detectors in an apartment complex can lead to serious or fatal injuries if a fire breaks out. Inadequate security in a building located in a dangerous neighborhood may allow a resident, visitor or patron on the premises to suffer the indignity of an assault. Missing or broken handrails in a stairwell, faulty lighting, improperly stacked merchandise on a store shelf and a variety of other hazards can subject unsuspecting people to significant harm. A dog owner who fails to properly control his or her pet can be a real danger for others if the animal attacks.
