What constitutes a dangerous property condition?

As a business or property owner, you certainly understand the importance of keeping patrons or other visitors safe. As a result, you likely take the time to regularly inspect the premises on which you conduct business in order to ensure that no dangerous conditions exist that could harm others. You likely also take the necessary steps to quickly and efficiently address any potential hazards.

Trench disaster may leave you at a loss

When your spouse went off to work each day, you may have felt the dread that comes when a loved one works a hazardous construction job.

If you got hurt on public or private property, who is at fault?

How culpable are you when your dog bites?

A dog owner's worst nightmare is when an otherwise trustworthy pet lunges at someone. Whether it was a single bite or a vicious attack, authorities may now consider your dog dangerous, and it is likely you will be facing the consequences of the incident. Dog bites are painful, may require extensive medical treatment and can leave disfiguring scars. Your homeowner's insurance may cover part of these costs, but maybe you feel like the attack wasn't entirely your dog's fault.
