Where Do You Go?

Most of us walk in and out of buildings or a person’s property without ever considering that we may be at risk. Why should we think about that? Property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises safe, right?

That is how it is supposed to work. However, we know that is not always what happens. Think about how many places you go each week: bank, gas station, parks, grocery store, movies, schools, etc.

Premises injuries happen all the time and usually occur when a property owner or the people who work for them are negligent in their duties.

What Can Happen?

One of the most common types of premises liability cases are those arising from slip and fall or trip and fall incidents. People can sustain major injuries due to these preventable falls. How do they happen?

  • Wet floors that have not been mopped and dried
  • Wet floor signs being absent
  • Low-lying obstacles like boxes on the floor
  • Loose carpeting or floorboards
  • Uneven walking surfaces
  • Broken pavement in parking lots

These are not the only type of premises injury cases. It is up to a property owner to regularly inspect and maintain their entire premises. This can include:

  • Elevators and escalators
  • Benches and railings
  • Store shelves and displays
  • Doors and entryways
  • Playground equipment
  • And more

Any chemicals used as part of regular business operations need to be properly used and stored. This includes chemicals used in pools and hot tubs as well as cleaning supplies.

It is also important for property owners to provide adequate security for their patrons. Nobody should ever have to worry about getting assaulted or robbed when they go to the store or another location.
