You may not be aware of the fact that the owner of a property has a legal obligation to use reasonable care to keep the property safe and prevent dangerous conditions. These dangerous conditions may include:
- Dog bite as a result of improperly confining the dog
- Bad lighting
- Uneven or slippery surfaces
- Toxic chemicals
These dangerous conditions could lead to serious injury including burns, broken bones, brain and spinal cord injury, and may cause permanent disability or disfigurement. It is important to determine who had the right to control the property at the time of the accident. Control of the property could fall under a tenant, the property manager, or contractors working on the property. The party in control could be liable for injuries which occur as a result of the property being poorly maintained causing dangerous conditions. As a knowledgeable premises liability lawyer, Mr. Fox will work diligently to determine who is responsible for the accident.
Even with that said, just owning or occupying property does not automatically make the owner liable for injuries that occur on the property. There must be actual fault or negligence on behalf of the property owner to keep the property in reasonably safe condition. Only an experienced Fresno premises liability lawyer can help you walk through the details of your case and determine if you are entitled to compensation for your injuries.
