If you have been injured on someone else’s property, you may be wondering
who should be held responsible for your medical bills and other expenses.
You must determine if the incident was purely an accident that no one
could have prevented, or if your injuries resulted from a hazardous condition.
If the accident was directly related to someone’s negligence, you
may be able to pursue compensation for the damages you have suffered.
There are a number of dangerous conditions that property owners are legally
obligated to rectify. When a hazardous condition on the property cannot
be repaired immediately, it is the property owner’s responsibility
to post warning signs and to notify visitors about those dangers. For
example, broken staircases can lead to serious injury accidents and they
must be repaired as soon as is reasonably possible. When a property owner
is notified of the dangerous condition and fails to mark the area as dangerous,
anyone hurt there may hold the property owner liable for the accident
by filing a premises liability claim.

premises liability claims often involve a failure to post signs near a slippery floor, criminal
activity that could have been prevented by an increase in security and
cracks in a walkway that should have been repaired. There are many types
of dangerous conditions that property owners are obligated to fix.
Negligent property owners may be held liable for losses such as medical
bills, past and future suffering, therapy fees and time away from work.
