Nebraska property and business owners are under a duty of care to prevent harm caused by a property defect or condition that could cause you foreseeable harm. When they fail to fix the problem or fail to warn you about the potential harm, they can be held liable for your injuries.
There are many different types of premises liability injuries that can give rise to a claim. Some of the more common causes include “slip-and-fall” (or “trip-and-fall”) claims. Others include dog bites; inadequate security; lead paint poisoning; and property defects at playgrounds, stores, malls, office buildings, and apartments.
Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall injuries can occur at any time and virtually anywhere. They commonly occur from one of the following:
- Foreign substance on the floor (spills, waxed floors, and other substances that make the floor slick and slippery)
- Items on the floor, in aisles and hallways, and in other places not normally expected that could cause you to trip and fall
- Snow or ice on walkways, sidewalks, parking lots, building entranceways, and foyers
