Property owners must maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition. When property owners are careless in the maintenance and inspection of their property, dangerous conditions develop, which can cause people to slip, trip or fall, or causing serious injury.
Premises accidents can come from a variety of sources. Elderly and physically challenged people are at greater risk of injury from even minor defects. Here are just some things that can cause premises accidents:
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Loose steps or railings
- Loose or damaged floorboards or carpeting
- Slippery or icy conditions
- Falling debris from walls or roofs
- Defects in pavement
- Insufficient lighting
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Amusement park accidents
- Dangerous playground equipment
- Lack of security in high-crime areas
Private property owners, business owners and municipalities must exercise care to protect those who enter their property from dangerous conditions. Careless property owners needlessly endanger innocent people by exposing them to risks of serious personal injury.
