Property owners have a legal responsibility to keep their premises safe and hazard-free, and owe a duty of care to provide a safe environment to all visitors and patrons on their property. In addition, they must take all reasonable measures to prevent harm. In Pennsylvania, there are local, state and federal standards that must be met by property owners and management groups.
When accidents and injuries occur on a property due to the failure to maintain the outlined minimum standards for the premises, the property owner and/or management can be found responsible for the damages incurred. Negligent premises conditions can exist in just about every type of building or open space, including homes, apartment complexes, theaters, malls, sports facilities, amusement parks, government buildings, commercial buildings, farms, and other open land spaces.
