Holding Property Owners Accountable
When you enter someone else’s property, you have the expectation that they have kept their property reasonably maintained and safe. However, if their negligence has led to unsafe conditions, then they are liable for injuries that their negligence caused. Unsafe properties can take many forms, including:
- Poorly-maintained sidewalks,
- Handrails, speed bumps and other safety measures that are not kept in good condition
- Lack of reasonable security precautions like locks or video cameras
- Slippery sidewalks and floors
- Dogs that are not fenced or under control
- Improper lifeguard monitoring at a swimming pool
If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of negligent property maintenance, working with an attorney can help you hold that property owner accountable. You may be eligible for compensation to help you cover your medical costs and the suffering you have experienced as a result of your injury.
