Premises Liability & You
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “Each year, millions of older people—those 65 and older—fall. In fact, more than one out of four older people falls each year, but less than half tell their doctor. Falling once doubles your chances of falling again.” The CDC further states: “One out of five falls causes a serious injury such as broken bones or a head injury. Each year, 3 million older people are treated in emergency departments for fall injuries. Over 800,000 patients a year are hospitalized because of a fall injury, most often because of a head injury or hip fracture.”
Throughout the course of a lifetime, a person passes through a plethora of public buildings and areas, usually without incident. At times, passage through those public areas may look questionable and therefore need to be avoided. Other times, the dangers within these public areas are hidden and injury can take place. Injuries and fatalities that occur on property owned by another individual or entity are tragic. Many times, these accidents could have been prevented, had it not been for the property owner’s failure to keep it hazard-free. Attorney Funk understands that mistakes happen, but he makes no excuses for negligence.
Various premises conditions can result in injury or death, such as slippery floors from spills or toxic chemicals, cracked or uneven pavement, broken stairs or stairwells, malfunctioning elevators and escalators, and poorly preserved environment.
