Inadequate Maintenance Cases

Premises liability cases can result for a number of reasons. Many times this is due to a lack of maintenance which made the property unsafe. These types of cases can occur in many settings, and examples of maintenance cases include injuries resulting from:

  • Uneven or missing steps
  • Fallen items
  • Lights that have gone out
  • Loose handrails
  • Fixtures that have not been repaired
  • Overgrown vegetation
  • Items in the walkway
  • Broken windows or glass
  • Spills
  • Broken gate a dog can get past
  • Electrical malfunctions

As a property owner, there is a responsibility to look after the area and make any necessary repairs. This can be overlooked and can cause accidents that could have been avoided if greater precaution had been taken. Many times these dangers were not new but had been left there for a time due to an owner who was too lax about maintaining their property. When seeking compensation in these cases, there will be a few areas that must be proven for a case to be successful:

  • The owner was aware or should have been aware of the dangerous conditions
  • The owner failed to repair or provide warning about the potential dangers
  • The injury resulted from the dangerous conditions
