Have you ever gone onto another person’s property and seen something that seemed fairly dangerous? Maybe it is a floor that has not been mopped or some stairs that are a bit wobbly. Perhaps there are shelves that look like they are about to fall over. We know that you probably take steps to avoid getting hurt in these situations, but there are times when people are injured due to the negligence of a property owner or the people in charge of their premises. If you need a San Diego premises liability attorney, you can count on Sean Simpson to be by your side, working to secure the compensation you deserve.
There are many locations in which a property owner could be held liable if they cause you harm. We will go over businesses, government buildings, and private residences today.
Business owners have a responsibility to ensure that anyone who is allowed to be on their property is safe during day-to-day operations. Parking lots are the first and last place people go when they visit a location and they need to be well-maintained and well-lit in the evenings and nights.
Inside of a building, slip and fall injuries are a major cause of injuries, particularly at restaurants. These incidents send over one million people to the hospital each year and can be particularly devastating to the elderly.
Most establishments use chemicals of some kind, whether they are used for cleaning or as a part of regular operations. All chemicals need to be stored and used appropriately.
Many business owners overlook the security needs of their patrons. They should always provide adequate security (security guards, lights, cameras, locks, etc.). This will help deter any criminal behavior that could bring harm to patrons.
There are many government buildings we go to each year. These can include the DMV, our county tax office, courthouses, schools, etc. Each of these places should also be well maintained so that everyone who has a right to be there is free from harm. This also includes local parks and playgrounds.
Even private residence owners must ensure that anyone who is invited over is free from harm or knows about potentially hazardous conditions. This can include securing a private pool or maintaining walkways.
You should not have had to worry about getting hurt when you went onto another person’s property. Unfortunately, there are times when a property owner or the people responsible for the premises are negligent in their duties.
