When people purchase property, they do so with an understanding that they have a legal obligation to keep that property safe for both their use and the use of others. It doesn’t matter if the property is public or private — all property owners have this obligation. For example, people who live in areas that receive heavy snowfall must keep their sidewalks snow- and ice-free for the safety of others. A person who owns a store or a parking lot has a legal obligation to keep the parking lot well-lit and properly paved.
Accidents happen when property owners neglect their duty to maintain safe conditions on their property. In terms of premises liability cases, “unsafe conditions” could mean anything from shoddy pavement to the presence of a criminal population due to improper lighting and lack of security. Common dangers and injuries that result from unsafe conditions include:
A Tazewell product liability attorney investigates the property to determine whether or not the property owner satisfied his or her obligation to keep the property safe. If we can prove negligence, we seek compensation on your behalf for medical bills, rehabilitation costs, loss of consortium and more. We can also seek to punish the property owner with hefty fines to ensure that he or she follows proper safety precautions in the future.
