A slip and fall or violent incident can have life-altering consequences.
But, it is often only later, after a victim comes forward and begins to question how they fell or tripped—or begins to ask whether security at the location was adequate—that they discover a property owner knew of the dangers, but failed to take reasonable steps to warn or protect visitors, guests, or tenants. In these cases, premises liability lawyers may be able to help.
A property owner may be liable for injuries resulting from improperly maintaining the premises, like:
- Not eliminating physical hazards that could cause people to trip or slip
- Not warning of physical hazards that could cause injuries
- Not maintaining surfaces, walkways, structures, and stairs in safe condition
- Not taking reasonable precautions to ensure appropriate security
A property owner may also be liable when foreseeable violent crimes lead to injuries, such as assaults, shootings, or other foreseeable violent attacks.
