What Are “Dangerous Conditions?”

While blameless actions certainly do occur, many slip and fall accidents are the result of dangerous conditions on a public or private property. What are dangerous conditions? Any condition that the property owner knows about or should know about that poses a potential threat to others. If the property owner fails to take reasonable action to correct these conditions, and you or your loved one is injured as a result, you may be entitled to compensation.

Examples of Dangerous Conditions

Some common examples of dangerous conditions can include the following and more:

  • Accumulation of snow or ice in entryways
  • Unmarked wet floors
  • Uneven flooring or torn carpeting
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Insufficient security, leading to assault
  • Improper or missing signage
  • Unsafe stairwells or lack of banisters
  • Unsafe animals, including dogs
  • Defective or otherwise dangerous conditions

Grocery stores, office buildings, retail stores, apartment complexes, and even private residences must take reasonable care to keep their properties safe for customers, residents, visitors, and others.
