Property owners have a duty of care to people who visit their premises and negligent design or improper maintenance can lead to unsafe conditions for their customers. A recent accident at the King of Prussia Mall in Pennsylvania showed how a property owner's negligence led to a customer's injuries. A woman was injured at the mall on July 29 when the concrete ceiling of a pedestrian bridge collapsed. According to the article on Philly.com, the woman was eating lunch when the 12- by 15-foot piece of concrete came loose and fell. It hit the ground and debris struck the victim in head. The article reported that her injuries were minor.
If you were seriously injured on a commercial property such as a retail store, office building, apartment complex or other type of property, you may have a viable premises liability lawsuit. These types of lawsuits are initiated after an owner of a building or property fails to properly maintain the premises and it results in injury.
Anyone dealing with a serious injury after a premises accident is likely to need financial resources to pay for medical bills, therapy and rehabilitation, and reimbursement of lost wages.
