We know that you are busy and that you do not want to have to worry about whether or not you are safe when you go somewhere. Whether you are at the gas station, the bank, or the local courthouse, you have the right to expect that you are safe on another person’s property. However, there are times when property owners and the people they employ do not take the steps necessary to keep patrons safe.
At the Law Offices of Greg Prosmuskin, P.C., we are here to help when a property owner’s negligence causes you or a loved one harm. When you need a Philadelphia premises liability attorney you can count on us to secure the compensation you deserve.
What Can Happen
You will face risks no matter what you do or where you go, but when you are on another person’s property you should be able to expect an acceptable level of safety. We know that one of the most common causes of premises liability cases are slip and fall accidents. These incidents send over 1 million people to the hospital annually according to the National Floor Safety Institute. Most of these incidents are completely preventable when employees follow proper safety protocols.
There are many other ways in which people get hurt on another person’s property. Just about anywhere you go will use some kind of chemicals. Whether you are at a hotel with pools or at a grocery store that uses cleaning chemicals, it is vital that they are used and stored properly.
A particular area of concern, and one that does not receive enough attention, is the neglect of parking lots. Often, parking lots are not the responsibility of the stores they serve but rather third parties. This can lead to their disrepair. Uneven pavement, broken curbs, and inadequate lighting can all cause injuries to patrons.
Restaurants must be particularly careful when it comes to many aspects of their operation, especially when it comes to wet floors, broken plates and glasses, as well as food preparation.
We also want to note that private residence owners can be held liable for injuries that occur on their property. When they have guests over, they should always alert them to potential hazards. Things such as open pool areas, broken stepping surfaces, wobbly stairs, and more can cause major injuries.
