Holding Negligent Property Owners Accountable For Injuries
The owner or manager of a property is responsible for maintaining it in a reasonably safe manner. People who enter a property are responsible for using reasonable caution. Not every slip-and-fall accident in a supermarket or broken arm on a school playground entitles an injured person to bring a claim against a property owner.
Dangerous Property Conditions
When an injury occurs in a public building, a pool or playground, or even at a private residence, a judge will look for evidence that the owner knew or should have known about the potential danger. For example:
- Was that spill left in the store aisle for 15 minutes? Was it a repeated problem?
- Had parents previously complained about unsafe playground equipment?
- Was the owner sited by safety inspectors for a missing handrail?
- Were the safety harnesses missing for construction workers working at elevations?
- Did the homeowner have a history of not shoveling the sidewalk?
