Holding Property Owners Liable For Dangerous Conditions
Commercial properties such as retailers, landlords, restaurants and private individuals have a duty to maintain their properties. If unsafe conditions exist, owners and renters must warn visitors of the unsafe condition and take steps to correct the problem. Poorly maintained properties pose a risk to all who enter. When injuries result, property owners and occupiers are liable.
At Trinity Law, our lawyers hold property owners responsible for breaching their duty. Our firm thoroughly investigates the circumstances surrounding our clients’ injuries to identify unsafe conditions, health code violations and safety hazards that contributed to the accident. We incorporate evidence of unsafe conditions — such as unmarked wet floors, faulty elevators and inadequately maintained construction sites — into our legal arguments to ensure that clients get just compensation for their injuries.
