When we enter a premises such as a restaurant or a banquet hall we have rented for a party, we have an expectation that the premises will be reasonably safe, and that at least if there are any hazards present, they will be pointed out to us so we can use caution (for example, a freshly mopped floor having a bright, bold “wet floor” sign nearby). However, not every premises owner or manager is safety-minded, and all too many of them would rather save a buck or two by allowing their premises to remain in ill repair than expending the money necessary to fix something like a loose stair or doorway threshold. These acts of negligence are not right, and they can and do lead to people becoming injured or even killed. If you were injured on a premises and want to discuss your case with a premises liability lawyer in Independence, the legal specialists at Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C. are ready to help you become more informed about your rights and options under the laws pertaining to premises liability.
When you are on a premises such as on hotel grounds or in a restaurant or banquet hall you have rented, the possessor of the premises has a duty of care to provide a reasonably safe property to those who are visiting their premises. This means that, for example, a big nail sticking up from the floorboard of a well-traveled walkway is not acceptable and should be remedied as soon as it is brought to the owner’s attention. Similarly, if a stairway in a hotel was built a long time ago and the rise of the stairs is not to code (i.e., too high or too low) and someone trips and falls on the stairs and gets hurt, the owner could be held liable for their stairway not being code-compliant.
