Owners could be liable for failing to maintain safe conditions

Serious injuries that result from falling can often create many issues for the injured parties. If the harm occurred due to a property owner’s failing to maintain safe conditions, the individual may have reason to file a premises liability claim. This type of claim could allow the negatively impacted party to seek compensation for resulting damages.

New York residents may be interested in one woman’s case currently underway in another state. Reports indicated that the woman was on the premises of a car dealership when she tripped over an uneven sidewalk. Her tripping caused her to collide hard with the ground and suffer serious injuries, including a broken arm and shoulder. It was unclear how she had her injuries assessed and treated. 

She believes that the company that owns the car dealership was negligent due to not keeping their premises in a safe condition. There were apparently no warnings or markers to indicate that the sidewalk was uneven, which could potentially have prevented the accident. She is hoping to receive an amount over $50,000 in compensation for the damages resulting from the injury-causing incident. 

Failing to maintain safe conditions could put anyone at risk of suffering injuries. Accidents that do cause injuries may result in civil claims just as this case did. If New York residents have fallen and suffered broken bones or other wounds due to certain premises conditions, they may wish to look into their legal options. If this route seems to fit their situations, they may want to confer with experienced attorneys who could provide additional reliable information.
