Beyond “slip and fall”: when owner neglect invites crime
The classic slip and fall injury occurs when the person who controls a property neglects his duty to make it safe for those to whom it is opened. This includes supermarkets with slick floors, apartment complexes with dark stairwells and restaurants with bulging carpet. These are all hazards that can easily cause a fall, and the owner/operator has a duty to discover and correct them. But an owner/operator can also cause injury by creating a condition that facilitates crime. For instance, the tavern owner who serves an obviously intoxicated and rowdy customer may be liable when that customer knocks another person down. A parking lot proprietor who does not repair damaged lighting may be liable when a patron gets mugged. A landlord who fails to repair a broken lock on the front door, may be liable for an apartment invasion robbery. If you’ve been the victim of a crime in White Plains, Yonkers or elsewhere in Westchester, and that crime was made easier because a person in charge of a premises neglected his duty, our personal injury lawyers can help.
