What is Negligent Maintenance?

For every property, either the owner or the renter has an obligation to perform basic maintenance and ensure the space is safe. The specific maintenance obligations will vary depending on whether the property is public or private.

Those who own public properties that they try to bring customers into typically have more maintenance duties to fulfill. They must regularly inspect the premises to find hazards. If a problem is identified, it must either be corrected or guests must be warned about the risks. Even those who invite casual guests over must make sure the property is safe or that visitors are aware of the potential hazards.

If the property manager fails to fulfill their obligation to keep the area safe, those who are injured can pursue a personal injury claim.

How Can I Make a Claim for Compensation Based on Negligent Maintenance?

You can make a claim for negligent maintenance if you can prove that the property manager’s failure to fulfill their legal obligation was the direct cause of your injury. Claims frequently arise as a result of:

  • Failure to comply with building codes
  • Defective repairs
  • Dangerous stairs, including broken railings
  • Unstable decks or decks lacking in adequate support
  • Broken pool gates or broken pool or hot tub heaters
  • Problems with water heaters or other appliances

The key is to prove that the proper level of maintenance was not performed by the manager of the premises. If you can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that this was the direct cause of your injury, the property manager should be held accountable for their negligence.
