Who is Responsible for Maintaining a Safe Condition
Owners of property are responsible for maintaining a safe condition of the property. While property owners cannot prevent every slip and fall accident on their property, they are responsible for using “reasonable care” to maintain a safe condition of the property. When property owners fail to use reasonable care and cause a dangerous condition on the property then they can be held responsible for their negligence.
Some examples of negligent acts by property owners that may result in slip and fall accidents include:
- Failure to repair a broken step
- Failure to follow building codes
- Failure to post warning signs around hazardous condition
- Failure to respond to complaints about a hazardous condition
- Failure to fix cracked floors
- Failure to provide adequate maintenance on elevators
- Failure to provide workers with warning signs for posting around dangerous locations
