Proving Property Owner Negligence in Premises Liability Claims
Not all accidents are caused by negligence; some accidents are truly blameless. However, the presence of dangerous property conditions can come down to property owner negligence in certain circumstances. If a property owner knows of or should have known of a dangerous property condition, yet failed to take any actions to address, correct, fix, or warn of the condition, this is considered negligence. For example, if the manager of a grocery store sees that there is spilled liquid in one of the aisles but does not clean up the spill/assign someone to clean up the spill or put out a wet floor warning sign and someone slips, falls, and breaks their wrist as a result, the injured victim may bring a claim.
So, what exactly is a “dangerous property condition?” Some common examples include:
- Spilled liquids/merchandise
- Accumulated ice, snow, and other tripping hazards
- Torn carpeting, uneven floors, and defective sidewalks
- Unsafe stairs/stairwells
- Lack of sufficient lighting, including security lighting
- Failure to post warnings/emergency exit signage
- Lack of handrails
- Inadequate or lack of security guards/security cameras
- Unsafe swimming pools
This list is not exhaustive; there are many other examples of dangerous property conditions that can lead to serious accidents and life-altering injuries.
