Many people suffer serious injuries while going about their business on someone else's property. Premises liability cases have many tragic stories. Unfortunately, many victims of accidents often do not know where to turn for help. Most victims may be unaware that they have a right to hold a negligent party accountable for injuries suffered due to a hazard the property owner or property manager knew, or should have been aware, that a dangerous condition existed.
Unsafe conditions at a supermarket may lead to a slip-and-fall accident in situations like:
- A fall on ice or snow that has not been shoveled or plowed can lead to a dangerous condition leading to serious fractures and injuries.
- Sidewalks may be hazardous due to disrepair or improper clearing after bad weather. Decks have detached from buildings, leading to injuries in the collapse.
- Stairwells in public buildings or rental apartments may not have proper handrails, leading to tragic stairway accidents.
- Backyard swimming pools can be an attractive nuisance, calling out to children who can suffer injury in swimming accidents.
