When you enter a business or another person’s property, the last thing you should have to worry about is being injured. However, accidents can, and do, happen when properties are poorly maintained. If a property owner knows about a hazardous condition and does nothing to correct the issue, they can be held liable for an accident. If you have been injured on another person’s property, you may be eligible to pursue compensation for your medical care, rehabilitation, pain and suffering, and more. Contact a Washington, D.C. premises liability lawyer at Simeone & Miller, LLP to learn more about your rights. We have already recovered millions of dollars in compensation.

Property owners owe a duty of care to the people who visit their property. This means that if they know about a certain condition, such as an oily spill on the floor, they have a duty to remedy the situation as soon as possible. Failing to do so can constitute negligence, making them responsible for damages in a premises liability case.

Essentially, you will need to prove that the accident was preventable. In order to do so, you must be able to show that either the property owner or an employee knew about, or should have known about, the dangerous conditions that led to your accident—as well as that they subsequently failed to remedy the hazard in a timely manner.
