Premises Liability: Your Rights If You Are Injured On Another's Property

Property owners have the duty to keep their premises safe. If dangerous conditions exist, they must be repaired in a timely manner and passersby must be warned of the danger before it is remedied. Unfortunately, not all property owners are diligent in their duties. When spills are left uncleaned, sidewalks uncleared of ice and snow, sidewalks and parking lots left in a state of disrepair, and dangers go unmarked, innocent people get hurt.
