A poorly maintained property can lead to severe injuries. When this happens, property owners are responsible.
Severe injuries can occur because of negligently maintained floors and walkways, faulty guardrails, broken plumbing, rotted decks, insecure stairs, broken elevators and a host of other issues.
Landowners must take reasonable steps to ensure property is free from dangerous conditions and to provide warning of conditions which have not been corrected. Owners must also make sure that they provide adequate security.
If you have been injured on someone else’s property – whether commercial, municipal or residential – it is essential to understand the obligations of property owners.

A NOTABLE WIN
Heinrich Law’s client slipped and fell due to an extremely slick floor that had been negligently maintained. The incident caused the client severe lumbar spine and hip injuries. The client was in pain, faced significant medical expenses and was unable to work. The property owner and contractor denied liability and refused to settle.
Our investigation and case work up, which included the completion of over twenty five (25) lay and expert witness depositions, proved negligence stemming from the use of a cleaning product that was incorrectly applied to the floor.
We took the case to trial. After the first witness testified, the defendant made a $3.5 million settlement offer that our client agreed to accept.
