Injuries May Result From Property Owners’ Negligence
Slip-and-fall accidents can happen anywhere: at your home, in a store, in a parking lot, in a hotel, at work and many other places. Whether you slipped and fell because of a spill or icy spot or you tripped over an uneven surface or on unsafe steps, you may suffer serious injuries. Falls can lead to traumatic brain injuries, broken bones and back injuries. In the worst cases, brain injuries can be fatal.
Were you robbed or assaulted because a property owner did not maintain adequate security? You may have a negligent security claim. Hotels, apartments, gas stations, malls, parking ramps and other dangerous properties may cause serious injury or death when owners and/or landlords fail to take security measures. Security measures may include having security guards and cameras, installing good lighting, and fixing broken or missing door and window locks.
In general, property owners must fix or warn of any dangers on their property. They must also provide safety measures such as locked gates around hazards such as pools or trampolines. When they do not, they may be held accountable for resulting injuries and deaths.
