Property owners have a societal duty to keep their property in decent condition so that it does not present a hazard to guests and visitors. Unfortunately, many landowners are careless when maintaining their property and ignore potentially dangerous conditions out of negligence or a desire to escape costly renovations. Hazardous surroundings, such as broken floorboards, dilapidated staircases, or a hole in the rug that might cause a slip and fall injury have the potential to cause serious long-term injuries. Suffering an injury on someone else’s property because they failed to take the appropriate steps to remedy dangerous conditions can be a painful and exasperating ordeal. Ensuring property is in safe condition is vital to any neighborhood or community, especially if there is a possibility of children entering the premises and suffering injuries.
