Premises Liability

Basic duty of care: A person who [owns/leases/occupies/controls] property is negligent if he or she fails to use reasonable care to keep the property in a reasonably safe condition. A person who [owns/leases/occupies/ controls] property must use reasonable care to discover any unsafe conditions and to repair, replace, or give adequate warning of anything that could be reasonably expected to harm others. (CACI 1001) Unsafe conditions are when: A condition on the property creates an unreasonable risk of harm; the person knew or, through the exercise of reasonable care, should have known about it; and the person failed to repair the condition, protect against harm from the condition, or give adequate warning of the condition. (CACI 1003)

An injury resulting from a slip and fall on property that has not been maintained can cause serious and even fatal injuries. Many of these injuries will leave victims unable to work, care for their families, and may even leave permanent scars or disabilities. If you or your loved one has been injured on the premises of another, a premises liability attorney can help you recover maximum compensation for your injuries. Negligent maintenance may lead to serious, catastrophic, even fatal injuries. If you were attacked while at your rental property, you may be entitled to recover for negligently maintained locks, faulty fire exits, and other failed maintenance.
