The circumstances present in unsafe premises cases can take many forms, often involving risks such as wet floors, uneven sidewalks, icy surfaces, poor lighting, poorly constructed stairs or floors, aggressive dogs and negligent security. Premises liability suits can be brought against a variety of parties, including commercial businesses, landlords, tenants and homeowners.
Thousands of people are injured each year when they fall due to a slippery surface or uneven area. The key to determining whether an accident is the result of negligence is determining the answer to this question: Should the property owner or tenants have known about the unsafe conditions and taken action? Witnesses can be the key to finding the answer and in providing corroborating evidence to present to juries, which are often skeptical of these claims. So too, a safety expert may provide useful perspective and testimony if needed.
