What can happen on another person’s property?
We would ask you to count how many places you go each week, but that would be a tough task. Whether you are at the store or the local playground with your kids, you should never have to worry about something happening. However, we know that there are times when the negligence of property owners and the people who work for them can cause injuries.
- Slip and fall/trip and fall incidents – These are the most common causes of injuries on other people’s property. They are also the most easily preventable and are caused by wet floors, loose carpeting or floor material, stairs that have no grip or are broken, uneven pavement in parking lots, low-lying obstacles, and more.
- Poor maintenance – Regular inspections and preventative maintenance are a must for property owners. Any area that patrons or workers have access to should be free from hazards, including, stairs, benches, store displays, shelving, elevators, escalators, doorways, and more.
- Restaurants – Restaurant owners and employees have the added responsibility of ensuring that food is properly stored and prepared. They also have a higher risk of slip and fall incidents due to spills of drinks and food.
- Private residences – Private residence owners also have a duty to ensure anyone who comes on their property is safe by locating and repairing any hazardous conditions present.
- Security concerns – Property owners should also ensure that there is adequate security for anyone who has a right to be on their property. Sometimes this takes to form of ensuring law enforcement or security personnel are present. It also includes ensuring that door and window locks work properly (important for apartment complexes and dorms) and that surveillance is continual.
It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries as a result of these incidents:
