Summer Safety: Watch Out for These During Summer Fun!

If you experience an injury due to a hazard on private, public, or commercial property, you may have the right to seek financial damages.  

Property owners are typically responsible for maintaining a safe environment for visitors, but the extent of their duty varies depending on the specific situation. 

During the summer season, many people engage in activities such as resort stays, swimming, concerts, amusement parks, and other forms of recreation.  

If property owners fail to maintain their premises in a safe condition, or if they do not adequately warn visitors of potential hazards, they may be held liable for any injuries that occur.  

The scope of this liability depends on several factors, including the status of the visitor, the reason for their presence, the type of hazard, and the owner’s actual or constructive knowledge of the hazard. 

Constructive knowledge refers to situations where the owner “should have known of the hazard,” such as when it was reported to them or if it had been present for an extended period.  

Premises liability cases can differ significantly based on specific circumstances, so it is advisable to seek legal advice from an experienced attorney. 

The types of injuries that can occur due to hazardous conditions on private, public, or commercial property include, but are not limited to: 

  • Slip, Trip, and Fall Accidents: These can happen on any surface, but are particularly common in areas with wet floors, uneven pavement, or poor lighting. 
  • Swimming Pool Accidents: These can include slips, falls, or drowning incidents due to improper maintenance, lack of supervision, or other factors. 
  • Amusement Park and Festival Accidents: These can involve ride malfunctions, slip, trip, and fall accidents, or other types of injuries caused by inadequate maintenance or supervision. 
  • Concert Injuries: These can occur due to inadequate security measures, rowdy behavior, or accidents caused by improper maintenance of the venue. 
  • Motor Vehicle Accidents: If you are using a ride-sharing service, such as Uber or Lyft, or traveling in a taxi or rental car, you may be involved in a collision caused by driver error, inadequate maintenance, or other factors. 
  • Hotel and Resort Accidents: These can include accidents related to recreational activities, such as gym equipment or spa facilities, as well as slip and fall accidents or incidents caused by inadequate security. 

If you or someone you know has been injured on someone else’s property, it is essential to seek legal advice from an experienced attorney who can evaluate your case and help determine your legal rights and options.
