Whenever someone is a property owner or business owner they have an obligation to keep their property free from hazards so that someone does not get hurt or suffer an injury while on that property. There are many instances where liability claims may arise. For example if a property is neglected or not maintained it can easily injure a guest on that property. Uneven floor, cracks, improperly repaired walkways, wet floors, debris on the floor, broken or cracked steps, cords or wires that pose tripping hazards, ineffective handrails, or even swimming pool hazards are all potential premises liability claims.
In looking at the numerous potential hazards the list is almost endless on where a potential injury could take place. Anywhere from a grocery store to a restaurant, a hardware store to an apartment complex, an office building to a construction site. One major area that needs a special note is when a business or apartment complex is negligent in providing proper security on the premises where there is a criminal presence known.
