What Are The Duties Of Property Owners?
Owners of both public and private properties have a duty to keep their property safe for those who enter into it. This duty includes the following:
- Cleaning or fixing known hazards
- Keeping up with regular maintenance
- Marking hazards/warnings
- Providing advance notice of existing hazards
When property owners fall below this duty, and someone is injured, they may be liable for those injuries. However, Pennsylvania law is more complicated than this simple explanation. If you have been injured on another’s property, it is important to have a skilled Philadelphia premises liability attorney explain your rights and assess a property owner’s liability. Trust van der Veen, Hartshorn and Levin to stand up for your rights, in and out of court.
When is a Property Owner Held Liable?
Premises liability cases are very situation-specific. There are, however, some common circumstances that give rise to premises liability claims:
- Unattended spills or leaks on floors
- Snow or ice buildup on walkways
- Missing or broken stair safety railings
- Faulty or inadequate lighting
- Sub-par security measures
Through more than two decades of hands-on experience, attorney van der Veen has developed a deep understanding of how to secure optimum settlements in premises liability cases. Rely on him to leverage the facts in your case to secure compensation and facilitate recovery in a way that no other attorney can.
