When an injury is caused by an unsafe or defective condition on someone’s property, negligent owners may be held responsible. Business owners, landlords, private property owners, and City and Government officials all have a duty to provide a safe environment for residents, pedestrians, and guests. When they neglect their responsibilities and people get hurt or killed, the victims and victim’s families have the right to seek compensation.
In order to win a premises liability case, the injured person must prove that the property owner was negligent with respect to ownership and/or maintenance of the property. Common building defects that lead premises liability accidents include cracked or uneven sidewalks and floors, wet or slippery surfaces, broken or uneven stairs, defective elevators, and icy conditions.
