Owners of commercial, residential or industrial property are legally obligated to make certain that their premises are free from any safety hazards. Additionally, maintenance companies and contractors that perform services at commercial properties may bear some responsibility in creating the hazard or permitting the hazard to remain upon the premises. In the event that you have been injured on someone’s property, photograph the condition of the property in a manner that will show the height, width, depth and nature of the substance or danger that caused the injury, before someone removes or repairs that dangerous condition.
Premises liability accidents can cause victims to sustain physical injuries, pain and suffering, emotional injuries and can cause victims to incur significant medical bills and lost wages. Even accidents that seem relatively small in nature can produce injuries with severe consequences.
