Duty of Care of Property Owner and Traveler
The property owner has a duty to maintain the property to reasonable standards of care. However, the traveler moving on or through the property also has a duty to maintain care to observe his surroundings and take evasive action, when possible.
Negligence on the part of the property owner must be clearly shown to exist in order for the property owner to be liable for any injuries sustained by an individual who slips or falls on the property. The property owner must have:
● Been aware of the condition for some time and neglected to correct it
● Caused the condition to exist
Every slip and fall case is unique and we must evaluate it on an individual basis. Contact our law office to have your case reviewed to determine whether or not you might have a valid claim for your injuries. Call the Law Office of Michael J. Romano right now: (304) 624-1100.
