Injury or death caused by unsafe premises, improper maintenance, or lack of signage.
Injury that occurs when the location is not safe due to improper maintenance or unmarked hazards, are examples of Premises Liability. It is the body of law that makes the owner responsible when injuries occur on the property.
Many people think of slip and fall injuries that occur because of a danger – such as ice, an unmarked curb, or a faulty railing. It can also mean a fall on a slick supermarket floor that is not well-marked by cones or a trip and fall over an unmarked or poorly designed display.
One of our clients slipped and fell at a bowling alley due to improper maintenance.
More than a few of our clients have been seriously injured in a fall on a slick grocery store floor.
Ensuring that parking lots, stairwells, and other areas are safe is the responsibility of the owner of the premises. Falls, slips –even assaults – happen when premises are not adequately safeguarded.
Instead of assuming responsibility to help the injured person, the victims are often blamed for being clumsy or inattentive.
