I was injured in a fall
No one want someone to be injured in a fall on their property. Unfortunately, thousands of people suffer serious injuries every year when they trip and fall over some type of unacceptable hazard on someone else’s property. Arms and legs are broken. Spines are cracked. Head injuries occur that can be life-threatening.
This should not happen. Property owners, whether private individuals, businesses or governmental entities, have a duty to keep their premises safe from hazards that could be dangerous to other people.
