Property owners are required to take appropriate steps to keep people who visit safe from harm. While this includes residential property, it also goes for those who have private businesses such as shops and restaurants. Unfortunately, thousands of people are injured every year when they have accidents away from home. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a slip and fall accident, contact us for a free consultation.
REMEDY, REMOVE, OR WARN
Owners and occupiers of land or property must make sure that their property complies with applicable building and safety codes. If a person on their property is injured as a result of a code violation, the owner or occupier of the property can be held presumptively negligent. Common sense prevails too. If that owner knew or should have known of a dangerous condition on their property, they must either remedy it, remove it or warn others of it.
