Negligence Cases can take on a variety of forms
Accountability in these matters is often unclear, but in matters of premises liability, it lies in the hands of property owners who have a duty to ensure that facilities they own are properly maintained.
Some circumstances under which premises liability may apply include:
- Slippery Floors
- Loose Building Materials
- Blocked Walking Paths
- Improper Exits and Ramps
- Inadequate Lighting
- Uneven Pavement or Flooring Including Carpet
- Dangerous Work Environments
- Host of Others
Building owners have a responsibility to provide safe walkways leading to their property, even when adverse weather conditions come into play
Though the property owner’s insurance will more than likely cover the cost of medical bills, the property owner can be held liable for other monetary damages, such as those associated with loss of income.
