Property owners have a responsibility to ensure their premises are free from hazards and defects that they know could cause harm to others. They have a duty to fix dangerous conditions. Accidents or injuries resulting from known dangers take many forms, including the following:
- Slip, trip and falls
- Swimming pool accidents
- Playground accidents
- Daycare accidents
- Construction site accidents
- Security problems or inadequate security and criminal assaults
- Injuries in public spaces such as stores, schools, restaurants, amusement parks, commercial or government buildings
- Broken glass
- Faulty store displays
- Elevator accidents
Although the property owner has a legal duty to exercise reasonable care to maintain safe premises, other people, such as a manager, contractor or tenant may also be responsible for the property’s condition. These cases require extensive legwork and investigation.
