Proving Property Owner Negligence
In order to prove that a property owner acted negligently and is, therefore, liable for your injuries and other damages, you will need to show a few things:
- First, you will need to prove that the property owner owed you a duty of care. This can typically be proven by showing that you were on the property legally at the time of the incident.
- Second, you will need to show that a dangerous condition existed and that the property owner knew of or should have reasonably known of the condition.
- You will also need to prove that the property owner did not take reasonable steps to address, fix, or otherwise warn visitors (by putting out appropriate signage, etc.) of the dangerous condition.
- Lastly, you will need to show that the dangerous condition led to your injuries and other damages.
Examples of Dangerous Property Conditions
There are many different types of dangerous property conditions, all of which can have devastating consequences when they are not properly addressed by property owners.
Some common examples of dangerous property conditions include:
- Accumulated water, ice, or snow
- Lack of proper signage, including emergency exit signs
- Spilled merchandise
- Hazardous items/materials in walkways
- Unsafe stairs
- Lack of proper railing
- Torn or ripped carpeting and uneven floors
- Lack of sufficient lighting
- Unrestrained animals, such as dogs
- Unsafe swimming pools
- Lack of adequate safety fencing
- Negligent security
