Were You Hurt On Someone Else’s Property?
Property owners that invite the public onto their property, such as the owners of retail stores, restaurants, malls and apartment buildings, have a responsibility to maintain a safe premises for their customers and guests. When they fail in that duty and people are injured on their property, they should be forced to compensate the person who was injured.
There are many ways that a property owner’s failure to maintain a safe premises can cause someone to be injured, including:
- Slip-and-fall accidents — Spilled liquids, debris, broken pavement, faulty stair treads and unsecured entrance mats are just a few of the situations that can lead to someone slipping or tripping and falling.
- Swimming pool accidents — Swimming pools are as attractive to young children as they are dangerous to them. Property owners need to take steps to ensure the safety of their swimming pools.
- Negligent security — Owners of hotels, motels, apartment buildings and other locations where security may be an issue need to take steps to ensure the safety of people on their property. This can include installing proper lighting, fencing, security cameras or hiring security personnel. If the owner has knowledge of the risk people face on his or her property and he or she does not take steps to minimize that risk, he or she may be liable for any injuries from an assault.
