Property owners and managers have certain legal duties to maintain their premises in a safe condition for the public. These duties include monitoring for hazardous conditions that can cause injury to guests. Hazardous conditions must be addressed in a timely manner by either eliminating them or providing an adequate warning. This applies to both public and private properties, with certain distinctions between the two.
This is the basis of premises liability law. When someone is injured on another person’s property because the owner or manager was negligent, they often have the option of filing an insurance claim or lawsuit. Doing so can help them recover compensation for injuries and losses as a result of the incident, including medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
