Property can be 'dangerous' for numerous reasons. Poor maintenance, inadequate lighting, building code violations and dangerous clutter just to name a few. Property owners have certain obligations under local, state and federal laws. While these laws vary, the basic underlying fact of them is similar regardless of where you live: property owners have an obligation to keep their land and the buildings safe for a tenant, a shopper, or a personal or business visitor.
When property owners or managers fail to live up to their legal obligations, innocent people can suffer serious personal injuries. The premises liability or dangerous property lawyers at the Phillips Law Offices are experienced at holding property owners accountable for their negligence and lack of care.
