We routinely pass between private and public property multiple times per day in our busy city and surrounding suburbs. Generally, owners and property managers have a duty to keep their property safe from dangers they know or should know about. If you are injured during your walk to work, while running errands or just enjoying your day, do you know your rights? Do you know who is responsible for the costs you incur as a result of your injury?
Far too many injuries are preventable and caused by the negligence of others. If you or a loved one has been injured due to unsafe premises, it is in your best interest to seek the counsel of an experienced personal injury lawyer.
Owning property comes with responsibilities and making sure that the public are not placed at risk by safety hazards is chief among them. When dangers exist – such as wet floors, slippery sidewalks, elevators or escalators, shaky stair rails or uneven steps – it is incumbent on property owners to remedy the danger or post clear warning signs.
The answer to this question will decide whether or not you have a viable personal injury claim for premises liability. If someone was aware – or should have been aware – of an issue and failed to take timely action, you can pursue damages such as medical expenses and lost earnings.
