What Are Dangerous Property Conditions?

Faulty Design And Construction

The design and construction of buildings, walkways and parking lots is a science that requires some commonsense safety principles. Many designers will add aesthetic features to improve the ambiance of an establishment or commercial property. A business owner may try to make improvements to a property to address a concern without thinking about how the property will actually be used. Oversights in the construction of stairwells, including lighting and handrail concerns, can create significant hazards for users of the property.

We Investigate The Full Range Of Factors That Caused Your Injury

A hazard on property related to design or construction can be as dangerous as a crack in the sidewalk for an unwary jogger. Some examples of a hazardous condition that can cause accidents include:

  • Poor lighting in or near a stairwell; lighting can warn people of the existence of a passageway
  • Handrails installed without thought of proper placement and use
  • Improperly designed or secured decks that can collapse with use
  • A marble floor without floor mats in the entryway of a building that can become slippery in inclement weather
  • Decorative objects near an entrance that can harm a pedestrian
  • Poorly designed stairs that are hazardous for guests
  • Unshoveled/unsalted patches of snow and ice that could lead to slips and falls
