The Duty of a Property Owner

Landowners and the people they hire to manage their property have a duty to provide a safe premise for anyone who may use it. This can include places such a shopping malls, grocery stores, swimming pools, private residences, and even spaces maintained by government entities.

Some of the most common dangers that result in slip and falls include:

  • Icy or snowy walkways
  • Uneven or broken asphalt
  • Uncovered manholes
  • Wet surfaces at swimming pools
  • Spills that have not been cleaned up
  • Poor lighting in stairwells

Sadly, when these and other issues are not dealt with, the consequence is often a devastating injury to an unsuspecting victim. The elderly and children in particular are at an increased danger for slip and fall injuries, but no one is safe when a property is left unmaintained.
