Owning property comes with a lot of responsibilities. One of those responsibilities is making sure that the property is safe for others and reasonably maintained. If an owner fails to address dangerous property conditions and a person is injured, they are responsible for all damages and injuries.
Every single property owner is responsible for keeping conditions safe to some degree, whether they own a retail store, restaurant, apartment building or a parking facility. Injuries can happen at any time, but negligence is something that should never be tolerated.
Some of the more common injuries due to these conditions include slips, trips, something falling from the wall or ceiling on a person, elevator accidents, unsafe stairs and slippery conditions outdoors after a rain/snow storm. Any injury that was caused by something out of the ordinary should be looked at a bit more thoroughly to see if a case can be made.
