Property owners are expected to keep their property in a condition that makes it reasonably safe for the public. If they are negligent in this duty and someone is hurt, the injured party can pursue financial compensation from the property owner. This is true no matter who owns the property: an individual, a business, a non-profit organization or the government.
Dangerous premises can cause pedestrians to suffer all kinds of accidents, including those involving:
Dangerous roadways may cause or contribute to accidents.
Uneven sidewalks can cause falls that result in head injuries, sprains and fractures.
Dangerous intersections may include blind spots or lack proper signs or signals. In some cases, the design of the intersection itself may be at fault.
Construction sites pose a variety of hazards to pedestrians, who can be injured while walking on temporary sidewalks or by objects falling from overhead.
Inadequate lighting or security can provide an opportunity for a pedestrian to be assaulted.
Holes in pavement or the parking areas of malls, shopping centers and other public areas can lead to falls and injuries, as can insufficient entrances and exits, congested walkways and a host of other conditions.
