Property conditions that lead to death may warrant legal claims

After the passing of a loved one, it may take some time for surviving family members to get their affairs in order. Depending on the nature of the death, some situations may warrant civil legal action. For instance, if a family believe that their loved one died due to negligence on the part of a property owner, they may wish to file a premises liability claim.

New York residents may be interested in a claim that was recently filed in another state. Reports indicated that the family of a man who died at a professional football game last year have filed their lawsuit against the owner of the stadium where the incident occurred, as well as other parties. Apparently, the man was attempting to leave the stadium when he fell from a fire escape staircase. He suffered injuries in the incident that proved fatal.

The family claim that the staircase did not have proper railings and that issues with the fire escape presented a dangerous condition. They also assert that the stadium district should have recognized the potential hazard and taken measures to address it. The family hope that a successful claim will allow them to obtain compensation for lost wages and pain and suffering.

Any type of unexpected death can be difficult for family members to handle, but when the event could potentially have been prevented, it may seem even more unbelievable. If New York residents have lost loved ones under similar circumstances in which unsafe conditions on someone’s property contributed to the fatality, they may wish to explore their legal options. Some instances may warrant the filing of lawsuits for premises liability.
