Dangerous Property Conditions
Property owners are responsible to make sure their properties are safe for people. When dangerous conditions exist on their properties, they could be held liable to cover the damages and losses that result.
In addition to the outside hazards already mentioned, the most common premises liability claim comes from slip-and-fall accidents. The slip-and-fall accident usually occurs in a restaurant or grocery store. When an employee or a customer spills food or drink, and the victim slips on it, causing injuries.
These cases often involve serious back injuries, neck injuries and fractures. As long as we can establish that management knew or should have known about the dangerous condition, we have a good chance of getting you a fair and reasonable settlement.
