Overview

Many injuries occur because of a dangerous condition on a property.  Whether somebody slips on a liquid substance, or trips over an object or other dangerous condition, usually the injured person can recover if they can establish that the property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition, and failed to take the appropriate steps to fix it.  The same applies for dangerous conditions in the actual structure of the building, or with improper inspections and maintenance of a property that lead to injury.
