Property owners and property managers owe a duty of care to anyone invited or expected to be on their premises. They have a responsibility to offer a safe environment to patrons and exercise reasonable care to prevent injuries to guests caused by hazards that were known or should have been discovered. When property managers fail to provide this safety and someone gets injured, they will be held accountable for their lack of care. In these cases, victims will be able to file a premises liability case to recover their medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering for permanent injuries.
Common premises liability lawsuits include injuries or death caused by:
- Collapsing structures
- Slip & fall on wet, oily or waxed floors
- Cracked or broken sidewalks
- Poor lighting
- Falling objects
- Assault in apartment complexes or parking lots with inadequate security
Injuries that result from the lack of care of a property owner can result in serious bodily injury. Victims may be able to hold the property owners liable for their failure to maintain a reasonable level of care, even if the owner was unaware of the danger.
