The general public takes for granted that shopping store aisles are level, dry, and free from debris, that a loose branch won’t fall from a tree in a parking lot and onto a new car, and that the coffee shop’s electrical outlets are grounded and safe for plugging into a laptop.
However, not all property owners are so diligent with upkeep. When a property owner or manager doesn’t keep his or her property in a safe condition, visitors are more likely to be injured. Poorly-executed maintenance, insufficient security, and aggressive dogs are all potential causes of accidents that can be included in a premises liability claim. Accidents that occur due to dangerous conditions such as these may result in very serious injuries, particularly if the victim sustains injuries to the head or back.
