Property owners and operators have a duty of care to make sure that their premises are safe for all people at all times. It is important that property owners and operators uphold this duty so that people are not injured on their premises.
Holding a Property Owner Accountable for Negligence
A property owner or operator may be held liable for any injuries sustained on their premises as a result of their negligence. This means that if the owner knew or reasonably should have known about a dangerous condition and failed to take action to address it, they can be held liable for the injury caused.
The types of negligent conduct that might lead to liability in this situation include failing to properly maintain the premises, not providing adequate security against hazards or criminal activity, or leaving hazardous objects lying around.
In order for an injured party to win a lawsuit over negligent property management, they must prove that the owner was aware of the dangerous condition but failed to act in order to fix it. If successful, then the injured party may be able to collect damages from the property owner for their medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses related to the injury.
