At Troutman & Napier, PLLC, our attorneys have been helping people
understand premises liability laws and take appropriate actions toward obtaining compensation for their slip, trip and fall injuries.
In short, property owners have a legal responsibility to ensure their property is reasonably safe. This means addressing potentially dangerous situations promptly. For example, if you reported that the hand railing in your apartment building's stairwell was loose, but your landlord did nothing about it, if you or another resident in your building falls because the railing comes loose, your landlord can be held responsible for failing to address a reported issue.
