Property Owners Are Responsible for Dangerous Conditions

by Staff Blogger | August 4th, 2017

Whether they own homes, rental properties, retail stores, industrial sites, or even undeveloped land, property owners are responsible for the safety of anyone who enters the premises of those locations.

And when people get hurt because of dangerous conditions that property owners should have been aware of, they can file claims for compensation for their medical bills and lost wages.

If you were injured due to dangerous conditions on a property, it’s important to speak with an experienced Nashville premises liability lawyer, especially if the injury occurred due to:

  • Wet or slick floors – Pooling rain water, spills that aren’t immediately cleaned up, or recently mopped floors with inadequate warnings can lead to slips and falls and severe injuries.
  • Uneven walking surfaces – When rugs or carpets are torn, stairs are broken or chipped, and sidewalks are cracked or loose, people can suffer lower extremity injuries, head injuries, and spinal injuries.
  • Poor lighting conditions – Not being able to see where you’re going is a major risk factor for slip and fall accidents. When property owners fail to install adequate lighting, serious accidents can occur.
