Pittsburgh Improperly Inspected and Maintained Premises Attorney

Property owners in Pittsburgh have an obligation to ensure the safety of their premises for any person who has the right to be there. This includes regular inspections and maintenance to ensure that there are no known hazards present that could cause harm to guests and visitors. Unfortunately, there are times when property owners fail to take the steps necessary to keep patrons safe. At Shenderovich, Shenderovich & Fishman, we are here to help if you need a Pittsburgh premises liability attorney who is an expert in claims involving improperly inspected and maintained premises. We have the resources necessary to fully investigate these claims, so let us get to work securing the compensation you need today.

What does it mean that property was improperly inspected or maintained?

The reality is that just about any hazardous condition that exists on someone’s property is the result of the property owner’s failure to inspect and maintain the premises. Anytime a person allows others to be on their property, they have to be cognizant of any potential dangers that could cause injuries to guests or visitors. Inadequate inspection can lead to a range of hazards, including slip and fall hazards, poor structural integrity (leading to porch deck collapse and other incidents), swimming pool hazards, inadequate security, and more.

Property owners in Pittsburgh have a duty to ensure the safety of any person who has a right to be on the premises. Business owners and property managers have to regularly inspect and maintain the premises. If there are any hazards discovered, commercial property owners are required by law to repair or remedy the issue promptly and mark all hazards that have not yet been repaired.

Owners of private residences also have a duty to ensure that there are no known hazards that could cause injuries to those who come onto their property.

The premises liability lawyers at Shenderovich, Shenderovich & Fishman often discover, when we are conducting investigations into these incidents for clients, that improper inspection and maintenance lead to:

  • Unrepaired fixtures
  • Hazardously placed merchandise
  • Defective or dangerous store shelving
  • Spills or leaks that do not get cleaned
  • Cluttered pedestrian walkways
  • Overgrown vegetation
  • Non-use of wet floor signs
  • Leaking coolers
  • Wobbly stairs
  • Loose handrails
  • Cracked sidewalks or pavement
  • Hazards in parking lots
  • Broken locks or security cameras

How do you prove a premise was not properly inspected or maintained?

Proving premises liability incidents can be difficult, especially when you need to show that the property owner failed to inspect or maintain the premises before the injury occurred. Most injury victims do not have the resources or legal expertise necessary to properly conduct investigations into these cases. However, our expert team of premises liability attorneys can use our resources to:

  • Obtain any photo or video surveillance of the incident
  • Talk to eyewitnesses
  • Interview property employees
  • Obtain property owner safety records
  • Determine whether there has been a history of incidents at the property

Additionally, our attorneys will handle all negotiations with all parties involved. If necessary, we will take a case to trial to ensure that our clients are treated fairly.
