An accident that happens on someone else’s property and results in serious injury could be a type of premises liability if the property was unsafe due to the negligence of the property owner.
Collapsing decks, broken railings, dangerous sidewalks, broken steps, falling gates, falling debris from a property (shutter, roofing), defective automatic doors and unsafe swimming pool areas are just some examples of unsafe properties that could produce injuries. Slips and falls are common on unsafe properties.
An accident on an unsafe property could lead to serious injuries, including spinal cord damage, herniated discs, permanent scarring, paralysis, concussions, broken bones and more. Typically these accidents could have been prevented if the property owner hadn’t been neglectful in maintaining their property.
The Pittsburgh Accident Lawyers at SMA Law Group understand how frustrating and painful it is to be in a serious accident. We believe that negligent property owners should be held responsible for accidents or wrongful death that happen on their property.
You shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s mistakes or neglect. People or businesses that have been negligent with their properties should be held accountable, especially if the accident could repeat itself and harm another innocent person.

Proving fault in an unsafe property accident can be tricky. In order to prove fault, first the property has to be proven to be unreasonably safe. Taking pictures immediately after the accident is a top priority in being able to prove the area was unsafe. Pictures should also be taken of your injuries.
The plaintiff must also prove that the property owner knew of the unsafe condition or should have reasonably known. In certain circumstances, you may only have a limited time to file a case.
