Fall at a McDonald's leads to premises liability claim

Every year in Hawaii and the continental United States, thousands of people are injured in public places as a result of falls. Things such as wet floors, uneven ground, defective stairs or tools left lying on the ground can cause visitors to lose their footing and fall. Legally, it is the responsibility of property owners to eliminate hazardous conditions and provide a safe environment for visitors. Victims may file a premises liability claim when injuries occur due to property or business owners failing to remove hazards or repair dangerous surfaces.

Hawaii is home to first class restaurants, shops and entertainment. When visiting these establishments, patrons and visitors should not have to fear for their safety. Strict safety codes and regulations have been established at the state and federal levels to protect all those who legally visit public places. These premises liability laws require property and business owners to eliminate hazards and provide warning of potentially dangerous conditions. Unfortunately, not all property owners will adhere to these laws.

Accidents can happen at any place in the blink of an eye, even in places deemed as safe and secure. In Hawaii, it is the responsibility of business and property owners to maintain a safe environment for all legal visitors.

When neglect by business and property owners causes injuries to visitors, legal action can be taken in the form of a premises liability claim.

A fact of life is that accidents are going to happen. Accidents can occur at any time and are completely unpredictable. Some accidents can be very serious and have the potential to forever change a person's life. In Hawaii and across the United States, premises liability laws state that property and business owners have a legal responsibility to ensure that floors are clean and hazards are removed to prevent visitors from falling. When business owners neglect these responsibilities, patrons and visitors can be injured.

These regulations say that publicly used facilities and structures must be adequately maintained and free of potential hazards. Sometimes, due to a lack of resources or funding, maintenance can be neglected. Flaws during the construction phase of public infrastructure can also play a role in future accidents. A premises liability lawsuit against a city in another state recently made headlines after a six-figure settlement was finally reached.
