According to Nebraska laws, property owners have a legal duty to maintain their properties and keep all accessible areas safe for visitors. This means that broken stairways/walkways need to be repaired, roofs, gutters, handrails, etc. need to be in working condition, and all loose debris or spills need to be removed as quickly as possible. If any dangerous conditions do exist, adequate signs need to be posted to warn visitors of the hazards until the owner can remove or fix the hazards.
When a property owner fails to repair or remove hazards or defects in a reasonable amount of time or fails to post signs and someone gets seriously injured as a result, the injured victim is able to file what is known as a premises liability lawsuit against the property owner. The property owner can be held financially liable for any injuries incurred.
A premises liability lawsuit can give a family compensation to pay for hospital bills, loss of wage costs and more as well as provide peace of mind.
