Sometimes a serious injury or death is caused by the negligence of a property owner who failed to secure his or her premises, perform proper maintenance or repair a problem on his or her property. Poor maintenance and faulty repairs are preventable issues.
The law requires that certain safety standards be adhered to on private, commercial, and public property. Owners and managers can be held liable when they are shown to be at fault in their actions or inaction.
