Protecting against dangerous property conditions
Video Transcript for the Hearing Impaired:
I’ll give you an example. When you have a job and you are called away to active duty while in the middle of that job, our laws say that when you come back, that job is yours. If you have come back and some employer says,
“No, no, no, no. We don’t have that job for you anymore,” we want to talk to you. We want to represent you. You may have a valid claim or case against that employer for violations of federal laws. It is important that you talk to a lawyer, because we can walk you through your rights, and what you are entitled to in terms of benefits or compensation; as a result of wrongdoing by that employer.
Property owners, landlords and managers of shopping centers, parking garages, hotels, airports, schools, night clubs and other properties have a responsibility to maintain their properties in a way that does not pose an unreasonable danger. By law they are required to make reasonable efforts to protect visitors from hazards such as:
- Slippery or uneven flooring
- Unsafe stairwells
- Criminal activity
- Dangers due to lack of security
- Other unkempt conditions that could cause serious injuries
- Tripping hazards
Sometimes these businesses are not aware of such dangerous conditions. Other times they know about them but do not take the necessary steps to protect the public. In both of these cases, property owners and managers can be held liable for injuries and death on their property. This constitutes premises liability.
