Failure to address a known hazard.
Owners have a duty to address hazards on their property within a reasonable period of time. Allowing puddles to remain on floors or ice and snow to build up on walkways only increases the potential for accidents to occur.
Owners of commercial properties have a duty to train employees on fall prevention methods such as covering power cords with mats, keeping walkways clear, and cleaning up spills in a timely fashion.
Faulty property design or construction.
A property may be flawed from the very beginning, whether in its initial design stages or during construction. A property that has been improperly designed or was constructed in violation of building codes may be inherently unsafe for visitors.
