Inadequate Maintenance

Cape Code Slip & Fall Lawyers

The Law Offices of John C. Manoog III is a full service personal injury law firm whose Plymouth slip and fall attorneys have helped many clients recover from an injury on another's property by ensuring that the responsible owner is held legally liable. Representing clients since 1994, our lawyers have a hard-earned reputation for providing comprehensive, personalized legal services for the people we represent and for fighting aggressively to maximize the compensation to which they are entitled. We have the knowledge, skill, and experience to indentify the cause of your injuries, establish the property owner's liability, and prove the full extent of the damages caused.

Injuries Caused by Inadequate Maintenance

Inadequate maintenance is a broad term that can apply to a property owner's failure to fix just about any dangerous condition, from a broken handrail or a cracked sidewalk to a malfunctioning escalator or elevator. Left unrepaired, these and other conditions pose a serious hazard to property visitors and can result in significant injury, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Fractures
  • Loss of limbs
  • Death

Invited guests aren't the only ones prone to the hazards caused by inadequate maintenance. A business's employees also face the potential of severe injury in the event that the employer fails to keep the premises in a reasonably safe condition.

Suing for Premises Liability

Premises liability is the legal theory most commonly used by people suing a property owner for injuries incurred on the grounds. The law generally requires the owner to maintain the property in a safe condition and warn visitors of any dangerous conditions of which the owner is or should be aware. These cases often concern injuries caused by accidents, such as a slip and fall on a wet or unstable surface. Premises liability also arises in a number of other contexts, including:

Regardless of the circumstances, a person suing for premises liability must prove that the property owner failed to keep the premises in a safe condition or to properly warn visitors of unsafe conditions, and that this negligence caused an injury. That typically requires a detailed investigation about the cause of an accident and the property's condition prior to it, as well as substantial medical evidence explaining the injuries caused.
