Examples of Unsafe Property Conditions

Whether it’s a property owner, landlord, controlling tenant, or maintenance personnel, the agent in control of a premises has a responsibility to maintain safe premises, repair potential hazards, and warn others of known risks. Factors in personal injury lawsuits related to premises liability issues include:

  • Inadequate security
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Broken or missing stairs, handrails or guardrails
  • Wet, icy or slippery passageways
  • Construction or renovation hazards
  • Obstructed walkways
  • Inaccessible emergency exits
  • Hazardous playground equipment
  • Lack of warning signs

Slip-and-fall accidents due to negligence can occur in essentially any setting, from commercial properties such as malls to public properties such as government buildings to private residences to construction sites.

Injuries resulting from slip-and-fall accidents can range from the minor and temporary to those that require long-term care. But even minor musculoskeletal and orthopedic injuries can be accompanied by extensive medical costs.
