Property owners, landlords and property managers have a legal responsibility to make sure their premises are safe to the public. Accidents and injuries – such as tripping, slipping and falling, and drowning – are sometimes the result of poorly maintained property.
Types of property that must be kept physically safe include:
- Apartment complexes
- Condos and housing developments
- Amusement parks
- Shopping malls
- Parking lots and parking garages
- Bars, nightclubs and entertainment establishments
- Theaters and restaurants
- Parks and greenways
- Swimming pools
- Any commercial property that is open to the public.
When property owners fail to live up to their responsibility, the injuries that result can be serious and permanent – meaning great financial, physical and emotional cost – and can even cause death.

Tripping, Slips and Falls, Drownings
Any number of incidents can give rise to a premises liability claim: a trip on a city sidewalk, an injury at a water park, a slip in a restaurant.
The liability of the property owner or manager will vary, depending on (a) the facts of the case and (b) state and local laws and rules. Liability might also depend on whether you had been invited onto the property, were a guest or paying customer, or were trespassing. These distinctions can be difficult to draw.
For that reason, you need an experienced lawyer like John J. Driscoll to handle your case.
