Slip and Fall Accidents — Property Mismanagement
From apartment complexes to department stores, you have the right to go about your day free from fear of improperly managed property conditions. Unfortunately, however, many property owners do not take the required steps to keep their property safe from hazards.
As a result, many people experience preventable injuries due to unsafe premises. These injuries can range from falling on an improperly managed staircase to slipping on a spill that was not promptly addressed. Injuries like these can cause a significant amount of damage and stress, including short- and long-term medical costs as well as emotional pain and suffering.
Landlords are legally required to maintain their premises safely. This includes routine inspection, promptly addressing hazards, and warning visitors about potential safety issues. If property owners fail to maintain the safety of their property, they can be liable for injuries sustained by visitors.
If you slipped and fell due to improperly managed property conditions, you may be entitled to compensation for things like medical bills and missed wages.
