Falling down can lead to severe personal injuries. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists slip-and-fall accidents as the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries. Dangerous conditions on property can lead to a wide range of serious injuries such as broken hips, damage to ligaments and other debilitating injuries.
Unfortunately, some landlords, property managers and businesses still fail to properly maintain their properties, creating hazardous conditions for other people who are legally allowed to enter the premises.
Common dangerous conditions on property that can cause harm include:
- Spilled liquids or debris on floors in stores, bars and restaurants creating slippery conditions
- Poorly scraped, slippery parking lots, sidewalks and stairs that create serious slip-and-fall accidents
- Poorly maintained, uneven pavement causing a trip hazard
- Poorly maintained or improperly lighted stairwells
- Rusted, loose or unstable railings that lead to falls in a stairwell
- Improperly stacked goods on store shelves that lead to crushing injuries as items fall
- Poorly maintained decks, leading to instability or collapse
- Unsafe conditions or poorly maintained swimming pools
