Property owners and managers have a duty to ensure their premises and anything on it is free of dangers that could jeopardize the safety of anyone. The moment a potentially hazardous problem is identified; they are obligated to fix it. Until repairs are complete, they must also take steps to make sure no one is injured by it.
All too often, however, conditions on poorly maintained properties lead to serious injuries. These injuries can include head and brain injuries, broken bones and trauma to the neck and spinal cord.
