How to Find the Responsible Party
Falls that result in serious injury are rarely the result of mere clumsiness. Property owners are responsible for maintaining safe conditions to a reasonable degree. Even if the accident occurs on ground maintained by a third party, like a sidewalk, it is the property owners may be liable for not alerting the proper officials of unsafe conditions.
Maintaining safe conditions includes:
- Cleaning up slippery substances such as mud or ice
- Removing debris
- Fixing warped floors
- Closing off recently waxed or mopped floors
- Covering electrical wires and cords
Just because you can see that an area is dangerous does not mean that you are at fault if you are injured while walking there. If the owner did not place up warning signs or close the area off completely, they are responsible for making dangerous areas easily accessible.
