Who is Liable for a Premise?
Typically, the maintenance and upkeep of private property that the general public has access to such as office and apartment buildings, walkways, parking lots or structures, houses and yards, parks, amusement parks, stairs and stairwells, etc., is the building owner but this is not always the case. Sometimes a property’s liability can fall to other responsible parties such as renters, property managers or management companies, security guards or security companies, or grounds keepers or facilities management companies, etc.

Personal Injury and Premise Liability
If a property owner or manager practices regular maintenance and takes adequate precautions to avoid hazardous conditions on their property, many personal injury accidents could be avoided. If you have been injured in an accident or from a crime that occurred because the property where it occurred was not maintained and kept in safe conditions, the property owner or manager may be held liable for your injuries.
If you or someone you love has been injured on someone else’s property, or if an immediate family member died on someone else’s property, you may benefit from talking to the reputable personal injury lawyers Washington DC residents recommend.
Statute of Limitations
The District of Columbia has statutes of limitations that apply to any personal injury claim. This means that you have to do certain things in a certain amount of time after you realize that you have been injured. One of these things is that you need to file your claim in order for your claim to be considered valid and you are thus allowed to move forward with proceedings to try to get compensation through our legal system.
